Welcome to Cowtown

Welcome to Cowtown

What a whirlwind few weeks it’s been. I’m exhausted already! For those of you just tuning in…I uprooted my life in Ontario for a new job in Alberta.

I started out my journey to Calgary by dipping across the upper U.S. States and zipping across through Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota and Montana.

What an adventure that was. I ate Chicago style pizza, visited Mall Of America and stopped in a bar that had swimming mermaids as entertainment. The trp was slightly boring, but I made the best of it by singing at the top of my lungs and spending a lot of time thinking about stuff.

I arrived in Calgary and of course the first thing Courtney does is pop open a few bottles of wine and put on Showgirls. Just like old times.

I had a few days to organize myself, although most of my paperwork for my car and license is still waiting to be filled out. I have no proof of residency yet, making it impossible to get any of my official documents. Work started Thursday and here we are at Monday. I can’t believe how fast time is going by.

Today I was taken by surprise when my boss told me the team is headed out to Vancouver for a Canon launch event, myself included! My fourth day and I’m jetting off to Vancouver, how glamorous! So far the job is great, lots to take in and it’s a bit overwhelming, but everything I’ve learned over the past few years is definitely going to be useful. Sometimes I forget how much I know about social media, marketing and advertising.

That’s it for now…time for dinner and some relaxation until I set off to Vancouver. See you on the West Coast!
