Last summer I took in my first game *ever* at Nat Bailey Stadium.

For a while now I’ve been adding to my “Cheap Fun” and “Cheap Things to Do” blog post categories. Cultural festivals, ice skating, swimming, and taking advantage of the hundreds of parks in the Lower Mainland are just a few off the top of my head. I’ll try and add more items to this as […]

I’ve had two weeks off work and haven’t done much, although I think it was well overdue. The reason why I had 12.9 days saved up was because I didn’t take any time off last year, aside from lieu days for working my butt off even more. John took some time off as well, sure […]
