As of right now, 9:30pm, I’ve been one week back in country.
An overwhelming feeling all week:
I made a video one time, “About Time“.
I spent a lot of time in traffic this week. I’d forgotten just how bad it is here.
I see while I was gone Tim’s increased their sizes to what now?
I went to my storage unit.
How do I still own so much stuff after that huge purge? I’m OCDing out a bit about it. That’s the smallest storage unit you can rent, but still.
Saturday morning drive to the suburbs.
I also found this song, I’ve been looking for eight years. Great memories of youth attached to this.
Been blogging all week to it on repeat.
I worked all over the place this week. That’s the fun of being a gypsy, it’s always different.
My view one day.
Here I am at the library.
The guy across from me kept speaking aloud to himself.
What else… worked on my sidebars, look right and scroll down. It maybe doesn’t look like much, but that’s 6 hours Thursday night. Welcome to blogging.
I moved twice this week, and again Sunday night. I’ve been making spreadsheets and researching and debating, and I’m not sure I can pull off this string-of-short-term-rentals dream just yet… I might be a bit of time away still. I’ll keep you posted. I could do an entire video series, “How to Live like a Gypsy”. Oh time, there’s never enough of you.
Hope it’s a good end of your weekend, TTYT
It’s brought to you by Scotiabank (who support the arts more than any other Canadian bank, neat eh).
1000 artists, 200 venues, and an audience of 1.8 million
I like their blurred out faces.
The resolution is ridiculous on these prints in real life.
Look for CONTACT stuff around town all May.
It’s easy to enter: make a video detailing what you aspire to do or be, upload it to YouTube, make sure to include these contest details in your video, tada you’re done!

I made a video to get you going.

I say it every week.

Specifically, I’ll be working on my sidebars.
- and here on KeriBlog.
Boarded the GO train yesterday morning to Oakville. I like the train. Probably because I don’t have to take it everyday.
Destination was Ford Headquarters.
I walked in…hi hi I’m Keri, you have a car for me. Yes we do, here are the keys.
30 seconds later, this:
The first place I drove was my beloved Cherry Beach.
And I am. It’s one of my favourite places in Toronto.
I have filmed so many videos there:
Being mobile is important, I designed my life around it, and when I was rendered car-less last year well, that was a big problem.
See ya later problem!
Seat heaters YES. Those will stay on the entire week.
And it came pre-programmed with all my favourite radio stations. How did they know?! :|
Thank you, Ford!
I look forward to cornering the crap out of your Fiesta. Wink ;)
Goodbye warm weather, hello ending to my ‘Avoiding Winter Tour 2012‘.
Proud of this.
I have internet on my phone again! It’s been 4 months since I could say that.
I was using the thing below. Which means I had to manage two devices, and the connection was not very reliable.
Every blog post had to be kicked online, no dramatics.
First meal back on Canadian soil.
Girl catchup, very important.
It’s ironic that it snowed a bit today… my first day back is Toronto’s first day of snow since February.
I picked up a Ford Fiesta today, I’m mobile again!!
The studio is done, it’s stuck in a garage in North Toronto. I’m going to have to jump it and take the back roads to the crushers. I suppose that will make a good video. Good for you, sad for me.
Pumped to be back, can’t wait to catch up when I see you.
Have a great Tuesday night!
I flew on Friday, was at the Nashville airport very early.
My flight was delayed, and it was the weirdest checkin ever; employees were whisper-y, eyes everywhere, pretending to be calm. There was a ground-stop issued, and tweets for both the Nashville (BNA) and Chicago (ORD) airports were missing.
There was a bird strike that grounded a plane, but that was in NYC’s JFK?
I find it best to be quiet during times like this, keep my nose clean.
Was it because it was Hitlers birthday? Evil has arrived on April 20th before. The Columbine massacre was on this day 13 years ago.
Or was it because there was a New Moon the next night?
Even YouTube had a bad day.
Or maybe this was all because it was National Assuming Day? (what a dumb thing to give a whole day to).
Meanwhile, the Trayvon Martin trial reached a climax in the courtroom on TV.
Then the riots started.
Below is the Kingdom of Bahrain in the Persian Gulf, and shockingly, the top photo is Montreal.
Then the weirdness got real close to home.
Come ON. That’s my old neighbourhood, I lived there for 3 years, and that doesn’t happen. I always felt safe all times of the day.
We rarely have amber alerts around here? And Hamilton News accidentally broadcast hardcore porn?
My internet failed around then, and that’s probably good because I was OCD-ing out, compulsively checking, watching, looking for a pattern. There is always a pattern.
Instead I made a Flixel I titled, “Ruminating”.
Weird strange day. Let not too many of those happen.
