We are encouraged as children to explore, try new things and to let our curiosity steer us towards new and interesting paths. All young kids have dreams like becoming a painter, a firefighter, a horse racer, or training with dolphins. But as we get older and enter high school, with more responsibilities and the realities of life starting to set in, we step away from those “childish dreams” because they aren’t necessarily practical, and start to focus on a career that we can be good at and that will earn us sufficient money to pay our bills. Our ideas of what we once wanted to be when we grew up are diminished, and more practical career choices become the new objective.
So if you’re a gamer (or if you know one), you may have heard that the first Virtual Reality Arcade opened in Canada in the last few months in Waterloo, Ontario. Ctrl V has been in the news with a new form of gaming for die-hard gamers, and apparently it’s a pretty big deal! This entrepreneurial business is now setting an industry standard in VR public gaming. My fiancé is a big computer gamer and has pretty high standards in terms of graphics and game play. I knew he would at least like to try VR out and I too was curious if it was as fun as I had heard.
On September 8th I read about Cory Katuna and her idea of #100Somethings Challenge. I was intrigued by the concept and decided I would accept with a goal of 100 hours of cardio (6000 minutes), and post it publicly so that it's out there! I encourage you to join the challenge too and come up with #100Somethings to help you feel fulfilled/creative/challenged!
Over the last month, I have created a few digital albums and archived all my trip albums from this year. Following this process, I stopped to think about what I love most about taking these photos and I would like to share my view with you.
I will start off by saying I am a little biased to favouring buffets. Mandarin and Ye’s Sushi are two of my fiancé’s favourite places to eat out and very rarely do I object (I like them a lot too)! I’m all for buffets because I find that they are often the best option for satisfying all palettes and ensuring there is something that everyone can enjoy. No matter what mood I’m in or what I’m craving, the buffet will provide (or at least offer something similar that I can indulge in).
I’m working my way through life in Canada and traveling when I can afford to explore beyond the border. Sharing my tips, trips, opinions and rants on life and travel in the meantime.
