I’ve been home for a few weeks now, and it’s been a slice. Kevin’s also back now, so it’s a full house for the Page family.
My appreciation level for Canada is through the roof, though my complaints about Burlington/GTA highway traffic and mall shoppers remain as vocal as ever. It’s been a quiet trip so far, seeing friends, imposing on my family, etc. Essentially, it’s like I never left!
For those of you who are wondering, yes the cat does seem to remember us, but no he did not greet us excitedly. Most likely because he’s a cat. I haven’t taken many photos since being here, but the ones I have can be found Jean Luc Picard’s Instagram account.
I have a list of topics lined up for future blog posts, but this one is just something quick and kinda interesting: for the next week, you can follow along with my at-home adventures on the People of Canada Twitter Account!
What does that mean? There’s a Twitter account called People of Canada. Each week, a different Canadian gets a turn curating the account, by tweeting about their daily life.
As I go about my regular day, I’ll be taking short 1-minute breaks to tweet about the things I’m up to.
Anyone can sign up to do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and asking to be added to the list of upcoming curators. I did this a couple of months ago, thinking it’d be something interesting to do while in Cambodia.
I was surprised to get my turn while in Canada instead, but I’m super excited that I get to be the curator during the week of Christmas. My family does Christmas up real big, so I’m sure I’ll have lots to tweet about.
Follow along on the People of Canada Twitter account, and you’ll be sure to see lots more insights, thoughts, and photos from me and from the Page/Sauchuk/Magri families!
Also, People of Canada is in desperate need of more curators. If you’re Canadian, regardless of where you live or what you do, sign up to give it a try! Believe me, I’m no expert at Twitter. If I can do it, so can you!
