Post Tofino

Let’s see. I last checked in while I was up in Tofino and found out the hard way that I wasn’t going to be able to stay for long before I burnt through all my savings. So after I finished sending out that last post, I packed up my things, loaded up on gas and […]

Military Mode

Where in the world is Jessica Burke? Good Question. I thought that I would try taking my chances in Tofino, but once I arrived I quickly found out that all of the campgrounds have closed for the winter season. Whimps.

Moving has always been a way of life, I’ve reached a point where I’ve moved so many times that I have to retrace my steps. Japan, California, New Mexico, Texas, Alberta, almost Indiana, and now its been a back and forth adventure between British Columbia and Alberta. I would say that every time I’ve left […]

New Year New Nine

It only seems fitting to re-evaluate this blog as I begin the New Year. This blog began with a list of virtues. It was what served as a tool for me to use, when I needed to be reminded of who I wanted to be day to day. It was my list of virtues that […]
