Tofino: Don’t Miss Out

tofino surf

I have a confession.

I didn’t have a taco, drink a pint, or even put my toes in the water at Long Beach. I did Tofino wrong.

Now, in my defense, this Labour Day weekend I was staying in Ucluelet, so I only spent a short time in Tofino but I’m still disappointed in myself for not following through on the things I wanted to see and do.

If you’re a westcoaster, you know that every time you mention that you’ve been to Tofino someone inevitably asks, “Did you have a taco?” or “Did you go surfing?”

No! I didn’t do anything I intended to in Tofino and I’m still mildly upset about it. But I keep telling myself, “It’s just another reason to go back”.

When Your Resume Reads “Server”

I’ve been back in Vancouver for about a month, and after enjoying the last few weeks of summer, the time has come…

It’s time to get a job.

Finding a full-time job is essentially having a full-time job. From the job searches to the resume re-dos, the thought put into cover letters, and the added bonus of social media profiles. Finding a job is a lot of work, especially when you are determined to get the job you want.
