CNW Day One

Hello readers!
Today marks the first day of my six week placement at CNW, in Toronto. That's right ladies and gentlemen, this little girl is all grown up and in the big city. Well, not exactly all grown I am relying on a family friend to provide me shelter over the next six weeks, but considering I am all alone in Toronto I think I am allowed some credit.

Today I met the two lovely ladies I will be working with here at CNW. I will be reporting to Amanda Liard, Communications Specialist, and Uma Chandran, Communications Coordinator. I was given a very warm welcome, and am looking forward to working closely with these ladies over the next six weeks. For those of you who do not know CNW stands for Canada News Wire, and no...they are not an advertising agency (well not in the traditional sense). CNW is truly a unique organization, that provides a wide variety of services to their clients. Instead of trying to explain in my own words I let you figure it out for yourself, check them out at

What I am most excited about is the opportunity to be a contributing member of the CNW blog (! I have been giving the opportunity to write one (or more) blog posts a week that will be posted for the world to see *fist pump*. Unlike this blog I will have to write something of actual value, so I am sure they will be much more appreciated than this useless drivel. Hahaha.

Today after work I will limp over to the subway, and then head back to Leon's place. If my feet are not bleeding too much due to my horrible footware choice, I will throw on some gym clothes and walk over to the YMCA (which is only two blocks away). I think this week will include me heading to the Eaton Centre and invensting in some new shoes that do not cause any bleeding.

Ta ta for now.

Ps: Downloaded Tweet Deck today, and I feel like a whole new person, never again will I be without this wonderful wonderful thing. Someone should have told me how amazing it is!!! I heard the words Tweet Deck, but didn't bother to check it out. Now am feeling like I have been really missing out...and of course have become completely addicted!
