Well this is the last week of classes and all I have on my mind is the summer. I love summer. The hot days, bright sun and enjoying not having to study for tests. But for most university students, summer means work. Get a job to make enough money to last for the upcoming year. So that’s my plan for the summer, to work. But I think everyone needs to spend the summer doing things that they like to do. So for today’s item: You are to have one amazing summer where you’re not stressed out and you do all the things you enjoy.
If you can’t think of things to do during the summer, I say remember back to when you were a kid and what did you like to do in the summertime? Here’s a list of things that I want to do this summer.

So lately I’ve been thinking about the origins of where my family has come from. And in reality I don’t know much about it. I know that a lot of my family is from Saskatchewan, but for my distant relatives, I have no idea. I don’t know if we came from Scotland, Ireland or where. I don’t even know their names or anything about them. So for today’s item: You are to learn more about your family and where they came from.
Some great websites to try to find out where your ancestors are from include ancestry.ca (specializes in Canadian families), Ancestor Search, and Find your Family Tree. Some sites cost money, but if you look around there are free ones out there.
So do some digging and find out what your roots truly are.
I have fallen in love with the show Corner Gas. Now for those of you who don’t what it is, it’s a show that is in centered in small town, Dog River, Saskatchewan. The show is all about the members of Dog River and their life there. I guess one reason why I like it so much is for the random Saskatchewan humor. It cracks me up because it reminds me of my family that still lives in Saskatchewan.
So for today’s item you are to watch Corner Gas. Corner Gas is now into it’s fifth season and you can watch either in Canada on CTV or Comedy Network, in the States: Superstation WGN or on YouTube.
Here’s a clip of an episode of Corner Gas.
