Keep Your Head Up + Your Heart Strong


Hello!  My name is Dan.  This is my little blog that I use to document things, thoughts, photos and videos.  Sort of like a bookmarking parking spot.  This little part of the blog is a little current update on things.

My last little update was back in May.  Usually in the link under “pages” there is a little welcome message every quarter or when the season’s change.  It’s approaching the middle of August and the Fall will be here soon upon us.

Many things up in the air as I write this.  Let’s see down the road what the next update brings.

A little Ben Howard song above that I love.  I was on vimeo uploading a video and I noticed in my stats that my One Second Everyday video from Feb 2015 was played 8 times on August 8th.  That’s a little weird.  So I watched to see what was on it.  While watching it many sweet memories came back about the Ben Howard Concert with LMS and hanging downtown with the kids.  Massey Hall is a sweet historical venue and excellent for a concert.  A little snap of the venue is below.  Such a great concert.

1-IMG_4251Watching some of the older videos is actually kind of neat to go back in time.  Before camping with the kids in late July we all sat and watched them all back to back.  The kids enjoyed watching the goofy things that we did and it allowed them to ask me things in the videos and some of the back stories behind some of the footage.



This is exactly where I am today.  Casey sums it up perfectly in a vlog a while back.  In life you you have many hills and valleys to climb.  When you coast it gives you comfort  and that represents “decline” for the most part.  When you have hard challenges in front of you…. you have to “fight” to get up the hills and if you are constantly fighting you are pushing yourself out of your comfort zone and you are moving forward and bettering yourself.  I’m on the verge of a good fight ahead of me in many aspects.  That does not mean that is negative.  It’s mostly a challenge really when you look at it.  The only negative thing now is how my ex treats me and how she plays the kids to “stick” me.



Work is good for the most part.  It’s a job and you can work as many hours as you can handle which for some people… that don’t have that option.  I’ve started to price out flights now and that is pretty cool to fly for almost nothing.  Makes me want to escape for little 3 day trips.  They are also testing out working from home for some employees and connected to work through the internet.  This is sort of appealing since I could work from anywhere.  Hopefully the can roll it out to more people outside the pilot group and it gets opened up to other people who might want to keep working and move to the GTA.


Music right now is extremely frustrating since my iTunes on my laptop is corrupt and therefore I can’t add any music to it from my library and the music on my iPod is really sappy and I wish I could change it up.  I’m hoping to get this fixed soon.  I’ve downloaded the some music streaming apps so I’m covered when I’m on wifi.


I don’t have anyone in my life right now but the door is open.  I miss many things about sharing time + moments with a woman.  Always moving forward and open to new relationships with people that could develop further or into a great new friend.


The Jays are rolling and so is this summer.  I have worked a ton of hours and I miss playing hoops with the boys.  I also miss having a drink and getting out and doing more.  I’m basically working, sleeping or hanging out with the kids.


Wonderland this summer has been so much fun.  You can see it in the One Second Everyday Videos.  We also went camping at Silent Lake Provincial Park and that was a blast.  You can see that on my July OSE video.


Which leads into my frustration.  I have not been allowed to speak to my kids since I dropped them home from camping.  I think I’m going to do a blog post and outline what is the status about my ex at the moment and how she controls the kids and uses that to stick it to me.  I rather get it out there and off my chest.  There is a blog post that goes over the details and you can email me for the password and the link to it.


Therefore, hopefully the next update will have more updates.  Maybe a new place to live, getting a new car, maybe a new job and a fresh start if I move to the GTA.  I plan the next update will be more positive with more things being competed.  Like starting off my new 101 List with some momentum.

Thanks for hitting the blog!  Cheers!  Dan
