This past year, for me, has been extremely busy.  In January, I was fortunate enough to be invited to join the Edmonton Youth Choir for their performance of Mozart's Requiem (the Levin Edition) at the Windspear Centre in Edmonton.  It was an AWESOME experience.  

My family and I made a snowboarding trip to the mountains in the Spring.

I performed several times throughout the Spring with my different groups (Chorazz, Jazz Band, Concert Band, and Piano). 

During the summer I spent the first few weeks in the lake at home, water skiing and swimming.  Then we went to Nitinat.  I spent most of my time there windsurfing and reading.  When we got home I acquired a second job (at Superstore) and spent most of what was left of my summer working.

In September I joined many extra-curricular groups (again). They included Chorazz, Vocal Jazz, Tour Choir, Jazz Band, Concert Band, Piano, and the drama production "Our Town".  At the end of September I participated in "Encounters with Canada"  I flew to Ottawa and spent a week learning about Arts and Culture in Canada.  I also got to meet the Governor General of Canada. 

 In October I participated in the Alberta Youth Choir (for the second time).  Yet again, and awesome experience.  For my birthday at the end of November, I received a digital Camera.  I will be taking it to Greece and Rome with me this coming spring on the High School International Exchange (IT) trip.


Early in December I quit my job at Superstore.  Two jobs along with everything else was just too much to handle.  (My job at the theater is too much fun to quit).

Having completed my Social 30 course last year, my course load this year wasn't as hard as it could have been.  My Chem and Math courses, which I am taking this semester will be completed before Christmas.  I don't, however, have to write the diploma exams until January.

Well, That's my year in a nut shell.

Merry Christmas
