Merry Christmas

I probably won't have internet tomorrow because I'm not home and I can't tell you where I am yet because I haven't held the contest yet for my youtube subscribers. So I'm wishing you a Merry Christmas today, even though it's only Christmas Eve.

And I wanted to show you this. For all of you that live in or around NYC, you'll really appreciate this:

Hope your holidays are as fun as mine. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Although it's just another normal day up here in CANADA!! Yeah, I'm in Edmonton. Well, West Edmonton actually. I opened a new store here in the largest mall in North America. It's actually pretty cool. The store is located right next to the largest indoor waterpark in North America (Dubai beat them on both records - I can't wait to go there).

I never left the mall (I'm leaving to go back home in about 30 minutes). Ok, I left once. To IKEA. Don't you just love IKEA? Mmmm. But as far as adventures go, not here. I finally went exploring yesterday. I went to the amusement park and rode the roller coasters and elevator ride from hell thingy (you know the one that shoots you straight up 150 feet and then you drop down and then back up most of the way and down again).

I didn't really take any pictures because Edmonton is pretty flat. Just plains. Calgary looked pretty cool (we flew through there) and I hope I can go back there some time (update! I did). I took a bunch of video in the mall, and maybe some time I'll put it together and put it up on YouTube, but for now you just have this blog saying, "I was there."

Isa and I went around the City tonight to hit up all the live coverage of the election. I love how excited the media people get of elections, it's fun. It's like Christmas for them. Ultimately we ended up in Rockefeller Center (by far, the best of all them) and watched as Obama destroyed McCain.

I've never, ever, seen the masses this happy. And for the first time, I really do believe that Change is possible. You see, as far as I know (and we all know that I'm about as politically intelligent as one of my cats) a President can't change much because of all the checks and balances. If you want serious change, EVERYONE has to want that change. And I think Obama has done that.

I was in Union Square for the celebrations. The way people were hugging and crying tears of joy, you'd think the Occupation had just ended, that the enemy just threw up the white flag and was retreating across the borders as we speak. I'm excited for the next four years. I'm excited because it looks like Obama has brought the nation together. I'm excited because it looks like the people are willing to work together to achieve something great. And that's cool.

And here's the video. I was up all night making it so YouTube would pick it up and it would get a few thousand views (which it did!), so please enjoy:

New England Fall Foliage Road Trip

Whew. That's a long title.

Isa had a performance (she plays the violin) up at her old school in Massachusetts. So I rented a car and we road tripped up there. Her school's campus is beautiful:

And the road there and back was pretty too. We had a good time.

I made the video. It's a little different than my normal style. But I still think it's ok. I'll let you judge for yourself:

Also, if you'd like to see Isa's full performance, click here.
She's amazing. :)

Home, Sweet Home

I'm back in New York City. I love to travel, and I love to meet new people, see new places, and have new experiences. I always love everywhere I go, but I always come back to New York. It just feels like home here.

Juneau and then some

So remember back in April, I made a list of things that I was planning on? They all came true. I went to Utah, I had dinner with my aunt, I went to Sitka and made it ridiculously successful. Just thought I'd update you on that.

I'm probably not going to run the marathon though.

Last week they moved me up to Juneau to help run the store there. It's bigger and faster paced, with anywhere up to 6 big cruise ships in at any given time. I love it! The added ships, coupled with my trying to catch up on two months of sales, means I'm working about 14 to 18 hours a day. So if you're coming from YouTube and you're wondering why I haven't uploaded a video until now, there you go.

I still go back to Sitka every few weeks to check in and to see friends. Sitka still feels like home, much more than Juneau does, at least.

The season ends here at the end of September. I'll probably be back in Utah for a day or two, and then fly back to NYC. I plan to be in the City before October 5th.

Plans are in the works for Turkey and Greece in March/April next year. I'm stoked. :) That'll give me about 4 months (minus the christmas season) to get my book published (it's all done, I just have to mail it to my friend Savannah out in London for her review).

Life is very good. I'm extremely happy with how everything is playing out.

Leave a comment if you have any questions that weren't answered.

Oh so picturesque...

Happy Earth Day!!

Sitka is BEAUTIFUL!!!

Just thought you'd like to know that my camera is happy.

By the way, that last picture of St. Michael's Church has Mt. Verstovia in the background. And we know from last week that the snow at the top is at least waste deep. :)

Oh, and I just posted a contest video on my Perfect Little Life channel. So if you want to try and win some free stuff, go over there and guess where I am. Well, where I was when I took the picture, you know where I am now. :)

2011 UPDATE: Although I didn't know it at the time of this post, Sitka is where I would meet and fall in love with the most beautiful woman on earth. This is Isa's home town.
