Lit Review

As some of you may know I have been working on a masters degree in Technical Communication for about eight thousand years now. Happily I’m on my last class – an independent study course – and finishing up the menial tasks required to¬†receive¬†approval in the form of a very expensive and official piece of paper….

Consider me ignited, Raleigh

Posted by & filed under News & Events, Opinion.

Way to go Raleigh! Last night’s Ignite Raleigh event was a very entertaining blend of technology, entertainment and education. I could go on and on about the awesomeness of the event but let me try to keep things brief by highlighting a couple of particularly fantastic contributions… Everyone Needs a Dumb Guy Chris Moody (@cnmoody)… Read more »

National Pride

Posted by & filed under Opinion, Storytime.

On a snowy morning in April, my Canadian-born mother and American-born father struggled through the final hours of labor. At 7:35am on April 5th, I was born in a small apartment in Belleville, a suburb of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. For five years my family moved: in and out of three Canadian cities and two provinces,… Read more »

A Year of Twitter

Posted by & filed under News & Events, Profile.


I have been so busy posting to my blog on a regular basis I belatedly realized that I have hit 1000 posts on Twitter! I guess my micro-blogging habit has really interfered with my regular blog updates (not that I was doing terribly well at blogging before the distraction of Twitter…). I spent some time… Read more »

Hopelessly undevoted to you

Posted by & filed under Updates.

I know, I know. I’m hopeless at blogging. Ironically I have been doing some posting, just not that much here. But don’t be sad- you’re always be my first. Christmas was good aside from a miserable cold that hit Christmas Eve and would not let go. Wonderful to see the family and just hang out… Read more »

The General World of Jen

Posted by & filed under Updates.

I love the holidays. There’s a purpose behind them: once a year we have to slow down and look around. Whether or not you like what you see it’s a chance for reflection and, hopefully, gratitude. I visited with my cousin and her daughter (cute baby at left) to exchange presents this afternoon. I won’t… Read more »

iLove iPhone

Posted by & filed under Opinion.

I’m sorry, I completely glossed over this fact in my last post: I got my iPhone. Woohoo! Before I geek-out completely I’d like to state publicly, for friends and family that have had to deal with me over the last week and forever after this– I’m sorry if I’m ignoring you. My name is Jen… Read more »

Thanksgiving: The Horror

Posted by & filed under Storytime.

Yes, all right, it’s been a month since I’ve posted. I am going to add a “Post to blog” task on my “Remember the Milk” list and monitor it via my iPhone. I know, it’s hard to believe I don’t have time to post since I obviously don’t have a life. So I am one… Read more »

An Admitedly Early Holiday Celebration

Posted by & filed under Opinion.

I was sitting on my couch enjoying my favorite at-home activity: browsing the web while watching TV, when I was distracted by the sound of my first Christmas commercial. Actually it’s my first Christmas anything, of the year (FYI it was the “Carol of the Bells” ad with the cash register lights but that’s not… Read more »

Fall Frolicking

Posted by & filed under Updates.

Well, I still feel bad about having dropped my class but there’s no doubt in my mind that was the solution for me. Things have been much easier without a class to worry about, although I do still owe my professor a project from the Spring. But I am good at procrastinating and having flexibility… Read more »
