Bon Voyage

I’m heading to Curaçao…again! Work has been crazy, lately. There’s a big release coming up, which is why I’m heading away. The last time they swooped me out there I was stuck in a shitty ass hotel (I will never stay at another Howard Johnson again) that reeked, worked 16 hour days, and didn’t have any time to explore the island. The island is nice, but I wouldn’t want to live there.

Investing in the Future

So the time has come for me to start thinking about my financial future. What A Pain. For the past while, I’ve been having a part of my paycheque diverted into an RRSP savings account. The time has come to start putting it into tangible investments since it’s reached a certain size and the interest in a savings account isn’t going to compound quickly enough. There are so many ways to invest.

Happy Canada Day...

…even though it’s now the 4th of July. :-P My mom and brother came down this weekend and it was good. They were having a good time shopping at all the stores that they don’t have back in Ottawa and enjoyed a tour of Steam Whistle’s Brewery. This has gotten me to thinking, though. I’ve been to several European cities now, including London, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, and Amsterdam. I’ve also been to Montréal, Miami, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Willemstad (Curaçao), Ottawa, and many more minor cities.
