What’s Up?

This week has been fairly crazy.

For the first couple of days, I woke up in Clarkston, Washington. I was visiting some friends for the weekend and having a wonderful time! Although, I was a bit short on sleep. So we slept in a bit. But once we were up, we got straight to doing stuff and making the most of what little time we had together.

Once I got back home, I recorded a new episode of The Aux Cable with Ryan, which was to be released the following day. On that Wednesday, after sleeping in a tad, I drove to Penticton to meetup with my brother and his girlfriend. Last week we made plans to surprise a friend in Kelowna for her birthday. So that’s what we did. It was great! She really got a kick out of it, and I got to see her again after a whole year.

That night, we stayed up watching horror movies until the wee hours of the morning. I love horror films! But I prefer to watch them with people as I think it’s more fun to be scared in a group. Spending time with this group was so much fun, and it brought back a lot of memories. I hope we do something else soon!

And on Friday and Saturday, I finished out the week with some TV, movies, and lots of naps. (Yay for The Crown and Your Lie in April!) I needed to catch up on sleep, so I did my best to accomplish that. Yay! Also, I got my popcorn fix for a while. My cousin and I went to see Doctor Strange in the theatre, so of course popcorn was involved!! 😉

Overall, an amazing week spent with good friends and family.

This coming week? Well, it’s gonna be interesting. I will officially be starting my job search and figuring out how to navigate the healthcare system down here. It shouldn’t be too different from the North, but I don’t know quite where to start. I’ll be getting some help with that though.

Wish me luck!


Hah! You’ve done good with this blog, Matthew. Let’s keep it going!

This has been one crazy summer! …and spring, since the last time I posted here was in the winter. *shudders* So here’s just a quick overview of the shenanigans I’ve been up to! I’ll post more details in the coming weeks along with pictures.

We killed it!!

Trips to Vancouver

I joined my family for a handful of trips down to Vancouver over the spring. During one of those trips, we got to attend my cousin’s graduation weekend in Keremeos! We also successfully completed an exit room in Vancouver with all of our collective smarts!

Slave River Paddlefest

In the days leading up to Paddlefest, the weather forecast wasn’t looking all that great. But we ended up only having rain during Friday night, leaving the rest of the weekend with completely beautiful skies and warm temperatures! So many people from so many places coming to enjoy a fun, family-oriented weekend on the waters of the mighty Slave River. Oh man, running the registration booth is so great because I got to meet every single person there! So many fun memories!

This is by far the best trip I’ve ever taken on my own! Over the past year, I’ve become quite close with a group of Blimey Cow fans via a Facebook group. We finally got to meet up in Nashville, TN!! All of us – in person!! I also got to meet two of my bestest internet friends, with whom I’ve been causing trouble over the past couple of years (usually through The Whit’s End Podcast). This is what I’ll be blogging about mostly.

And there you have it! Three of the big events that have happened since winter. What’s next? Well…I’m going to the Okanagan (Southern BC) for the winter! I’ll keep you posted.
