I'll keep this brief, and elaborate later on.

Yesterday was just unreal!
I found basically ALL of my family including my grandmother on my biological fathers side, yesterday! The best part of this all... They're all in Vancouver!

Most are about 45mins to a hour away from me, and they all want to meet me!?

What and awesome surprise.

Searching since 2007... its nice to finally gets results.

If there's a condition called "Perma-Smile", I have it.

How's the weather today?

So in one word, describe BCs weather: Rainy.

No doubt about that! I was warned about the weather repeatedly, by friends, family and research I did about this province before moving here. So I made sure to lynch my distaste for rain before making the 5000+ journey over here... And I'm actually quite comfortable!


Oh yes, there's a but...

I can't help but feel responsible for the recent bizarre weather. I think I may have accidentally packed some (All!) east coast winter oddities!

Along with the daily rainfall, there's almost always random breaks where it snows, hails and of course the cold... Which, apparently isn't normal for this time of year (out here).

Now what's really NOT normal for this time of year, is the hot +20s, tshirt and shorts weather that happened this past weekend back out east!

In Quebec, it's known for its ridiculously long, cold, disgusting winter... And gorgeous but very short summers... And summer type weather in march... Is unheard of!

Haha! What have I done?!

Besides being a little jealous and mildly guilty... I'm not complaining. Us Canadians know how to handle our cold, so I'll just tough it out and look forward to my first BC summer :)

There's a saying out here, that's rings true:

" If you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes"

Chances are, at some point in the day, you'll be greater with sunny blue sky's and more than one rainbow.

BC weather is bipolar :p

Company BBQ

Not gonna lie, today was a lot of fun!
The food was amazing, the sports were fun & I won $20 at Texas holdem.

If I were to complain about anything, it would be the lack of photos I took and the poor quality of the ones I did take. Today totally deserved better shots... But I was just to busy having fun :)

Everything had to be held indoor in the warehouse due to rain... That came as no surprise to anyone... We do live in BC :p

There was basketball, floor hockey and badminton. I'm a badminton junkie... Lol :p

And he wasn't joking... I'm no pro, not by far! But he taught me how to play during lunch time in the last three days, and it paid off!
