Every month, I stroll through the posts I wrote last year at the time and create a small highlight reel of sorts. There are a few months I haven’t done yet, so I am trying to catch up. Let’s jump back in time, eleven years and see what was happening then.
or just these highlights.
with some added commentary
As you know, I am passionate about hip-hop music. Well, yesterday, I got to take my passion to the airwaves. I joined the crew of Dope FM to help interview a rap group. [Keep Reading]
I had no idea how far radio would take me when I did my very first show as interview host and correspondent. It has been an absolute blast and I have loved every minute of it.
I get three channels on my TV that come in quite well. For the most part, that is enough for me. But I really wanted to watch the season premiere of Heroes on Monday. The problem was that it was on a channel that doesn’t really come in. [Keep Reading]
My wife has a full cable package with a digital recorder. We also have Netflix. And countless DVDs. The television options are virtually limitless now. But I truly think I could go back to watching TV like I did a decade ago.
Almost every school has a Terry Fox run yearly. The run was this past Friday at my school and it was amazing. All the students, teachers, and staff participated in it. Some of the teachers and staff manned water stations and check points along the route. Other staff members walked the route. I ran it. [Keep Reading]

I loved having cross country meets here when I was in high school. I had to go back and try running it again. I have done so a few times. It’s still a nice place to run, but since this post, I have found some great places to run that I enjoy even more.
I finally got the Internet at home. And I must say that you can surely get lost in the World Wide Web. I used to be content with just an hour online a day. I still am. I’m not sure what I did after that hour but I didn’t log off. I stayed on and whittled away the hours. [Keep Reading]
I have wi-fi on my phone and at home. The Internet is almost always available. This is so different from going to the library for an hour a day to access it. I should try to get back to that hour a day limit. There is even more ways to whittle away the time nowadays. And so much more that I could or should be doing.
