It’s Saturday, How’s That for a Blog Post Title

I was so sick of everything yesterday, that’s why I was quiet.

I’m sick of: traffic dictating my schedule, my ever buzzing phone, how time goes faster in a big city, how no matter how much time I invest here it’s not enough because I’m physically just one girl and can’t afford an assistant and I don’t like free/intern so I’m on a plateau that is killing me, and post another photo of yourself.

What kicked it over yesterday afternoon was the entitled street kid.  Nope, gave my money to the drooling guy with the broken mind, and your shoes are giving you away Mr. Rosedale.

I can’t watch that bus monitor video that went around the internet this week.  Can’t.  Old people are my cryptonite.  Entitled youth ranks very high on my have-a-short-fuse-for list, too.  Bad combo, that video.

Did you know it was a Canadian (from Toronto) who is behind the fundraising campaign?  Half a million raised since Tuesday.  That’s really amazing, that much that fast.

Fresh flower day. Good deal, eh.

Honda video editing.

Here I am recording the voice over.  Dramatically.

The black thing is my microphone, which creeps into the frame when using the forward-facing camera, which is a problem indeed.

Learned this, interesting.

Vegas held that title for a long time, then Dubai, now, CANADA.

Went to Kensington market. No, really.

That’s Yara playing the piano, you’ve met her before. My oldest girlfriend. Which is what it takes to get me to Kensington market (note: for those not living in Toronto, Kensington is like, hippie HQ).

Strangely, this is where they were playing.

It’s strange because, see the arrow? That’s the only other place in Kensington I’ve been.

Google that exact phrase to see the place, first search result. I’m not linking it up for a reason, and have hidden the text in a photo so the bots can’t find it, oh many I have so many tricks like that to share with you over on Smarten Up, Internet.

More proof Thursday night is the best night of the week.

All right, the end.

Today I polish my Honda post, which is my best video in a while.

Here’s to a great start to your weekend, have a great Saturday!



First Week Home Complete

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.

Start it at 1:30, use headphones.

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.

Another 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

#ThursdayNight Best Night of the Week

I say it every week.

What’s happening this week.



Specifically, I’ll be working on my sidebars.

You can watch them grow, if you refresh once and while.

Things From My Weekend

New gear day!!

Arrived in the mail.  I ordered it in Atlanta, and it was shipped from Atlanta. That is ironic.

Hello mobile studio.

Here I am fixing my ponytail before filming.

Used this to practice on the new Final Cut, which, the more I use the more I dislike it.  I’m not alone; video editors all over are unimpressed.  Too much forcing you to do stuff you don’t want to do.

I made a one-minute video about the story behind my first security advice post, click here.

Then I wandered around an Asian grocery store, and grabbed some photos for

Would you like an eel?

Tried on some wigs.

I’d like a short brown bob wig. I have an angle on one in Toronto. Gotta make it tougher for the stalkers when I return.

Tried out a new iPhone app – Photoshop Express. It’s good, it’s free, and I’ll likely buy I couple upgrades for it (they have a great collection of frames which will make my blog beautiful).

See?! Freemium works.

Day drive.

Night walk.

DigiSo dinner meeting Saturday night.

Flew out Sunday at 6am. It’s the last leg of my “Avoiding Winter 2012 Tour”. Boo.

Hi from Tennessee! This music mecca is really wasted on me, since I don’t listen to music.

See those two bottom left? They saluted me when we passed one another. I like where people’s heads are at here :|

Gotta run and change over my laundry, TTYL.




Meet DigiSo, West Virginia’s First Co-Working Digital Studio

DigiSo is the result of collaborative brainstorming by the West Virginia State University Economic Development Center (EDC), Create West Virginia, and more than a dozen working professionals in media design, production and Internet technologies.

Cool, eh?!  You can meet here, rent out brand-new equipment, and find like-minded people to trade tips and swap ideas.

Hey Toronto pals – remember two years ago when social media really took off and everything changed?  They’re on the cusp of that (Charleston is the largest city in the state).

Thanks to these guys for making this happen!

And special thanks to Sarah ;)

The DigiSo space will offer drop-in work stations, and editing suite, voice studio, secure access and storage, all basic production equipment creates need, and meeting space ideal for large and intimate groups.

My second favourite room.

My first favourite room – the green screen studio.

Here we are inside, getting our group ‘Anchor’ shot.

Here’s how you know this place is class… see the arrow?

They thought to install coat hooks in the bathrooms.  Success is in the details.

Last minute presentation preparation.


This was right after the opening, the Charleston chapter of Ignite – a worldwide speaking group, tagline, “Enlighten Us, But Make it Quick”.  You get 20 slides and 5 minutes.  Here’s me prepping for it.

Click here: It’s a beautiful site.

Here’s the direct link to my page.

I spoke about how to build your brand online, and why having a blog is good for a human.

Oh, remember when I referenced I’d also built a green screen studio?

Here’s that video.

I’m an “Anchor” here.

What I’d like to share with you: what I’ve learned about blogging, social media, living online, and managing a brand online, all to help you find, or create, a job in this brand new industry.

I’d like to spend an afternoon together, help you create and build your online identity.  Show you how to manage it.  Make it so when I say, “I’m about to SEO the crap out of this post”, you’ll know what I mean.

Thanks for a great time, I’m pumped to be a part of DigiSo!  

And a huge congratulations guys,

your hard work paid off beautifully. 


PS – Yup, that was my big mouth on the invitation ;) (it’s from my airport post)
