"We are Strength in Numbers"

Dear Friends,
Today I have a request of you.
Yes, a request. In the 6 years that I have been blogging I have asked for nothing more than your thoughts. But today I ask for a little more.

There is a church within the city of Winnipeg that is asking people to give $10 towards habitat for humanity. None of the money go to the church, I can assure you of this, but it goes to building a home for a family in Winnipeg that needs it. The goal of Soul Sanctuary (said church) is that they wish to raise $75,000 dollars in a few weeks for this cause.

The way I see it...
$10 will get you 2 coffee's from Starbucks.
$10 will get you lunch.
Or $10 can help provide adequate housing for someone who needs it.

So I ask you to donate, not for me, not for you but for someone who could use it a little more than we could.

I Am Young

Dear Friends,
I have been 'living the life' lately. I am enjoying every part of this good ol' life of mine. Let me explain...
So I am currently enrolled in the University of Manitoba taking a general supply of arts courses. I am not really sure what I am working towards but its all good, I am young.

I am done school everyday in the morning (still taking a full course load, by the way) and at noon I head down to work at Quest Musique on Portage. It is a pretty sweet deal. I love being surrounded by all the gear all day and the people I work with are pretty darn awesome as well.

I have also taken on another job, the culture reporter/writer for the Manitoban. Yes, I am hired by the university newspaper. For those of you who refuse to pick up the Manitoban for whatever reason, maybe give it another shot, and if nothing else just turn to the culture section and you'll find my writings.

I love my church too! Oh my, just the environment is intoxicating (in a totally positive way). I look forward to heading to church on Sundays and meeting with a solid group of guys on Wednesday nights.

Oh and now... Politics... I went out with a friend last night to a social for a MP candidate. I had so much fun during the night, speech's, pictures, dancing, food. The works. But I have caught that political spirit that I once had about a year ago. There is something exhilarating about politics to me. I have a huge interest in them. It is still an open door for a future career option.

I am still not sure what I am going to do with my life yet, but I am young.

I hope you all have a great week, take it easy.
