Being Schooled

SEO Nick posted this 12 5,764 Views

About 3 weeks ago I started attending Vancouver Island University (formally Malaspina Univ-College). I applied for their Fine Arts program back in August and magically got in. (I REALLY didn't expect to get in. My portfolio was less than impressive; not to mention I brought it in a plastic thrifty's bag.) I'm shooting for a Minor Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree.. and then for the Diploma of Visual Arts. I believe it's 2 years for the Minor Bachelor and 4 for the Visual Arts Diploma. Should b...

Anyone who buys Pizza for their Website Provider(more specifically REW) is a friend of REW's. I just wanted to make a post on behalf of the staff at REW; thanking Dennis Pease for buying us all Pizza yesterday! (Sept 18.08) We DO work best when we are full of pizza. So you helped keep production top notch, yesterday. It was great to meet you in person and hope you (and any other client/forum member) come visit again someday! Thanks Dennis!  

REW Social Committee Strikes Again!

SEO Nick posted this 4 5,264 Views

With the success of the recent "Crazy Hat Day" at REW, the Social Committee decided it was a good idea to get on the next fun social event for the staff. Many ideas were tossed around, but few were as obvious a choice as this theme. Before I tell you the theme, I will tell you the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners. 1st Prize, Danielle (CSR) 2nd Prize, Nick (Creative Link Development) 3rd Prize, Phil (Design) So, now.. without further ado, I implore you all to come step ...

Real Estate Webmasters First Ever: Crazy Hat Day!

SEO Nick posted this 8 6,603 Views

So, in an effort to make the work environment at REW a little more fun (not that it needed it), a small committee has been made within the staff to think up and run fun social events. Out of this, Crazy Hat Day was born! The participation by staff was great. The hats were definitely eclectic and random... and I think represented the people wearing them fairly well. So, without further ado, here are the pictures from REW's Crazy Hat Day! PS. Sorry about the image comments being on the s...

Holy Social Networking Diversity, Batman!

SEO Nick posted this 9 2,405 Views

So, over the last couple of days, I have taken to going around the internet, seeking out the best Social Networking/Bookmarking sites and creating accounts with all of them. It's overdue, really. I should have been doing this MONTHS ago. There are so many! I had never actually realized how diverse each one is! It's actually really fun and intriguing. The sign-up forms for each are all completely different. Each one offers some features that the other doesn't. It's great!  I thi...

SEO Nick posted this 8 2,852 Views

It's been just about two months since my last blog post, so I've decided to treat you all with my amazing writing skills. Unlike most of the internet savvy people I know, I was a little late to discover just how entertaining Digg can be. I only recently started visiting the site daily and to my surprise, I find myself learning bits of useful (and non-useful) information every day. So, without further ado, here is the top 10 things I've Learned From Digg. 10. Digg users LOVE top 10 list...

SEO Nick's New Year's Resolutions.

SEO Nick posted this 18 2,238 Views

It's been a while since I made my last post.. so I thought I would update y'all on what I have planned for 2008. I have a basic idea of some things that I want to get done before the summer even. I think the main thing I want to happen before the summertime is for me to get in better shape. I spend a LOT of time on computers and I think that with a little self-motivation, I can get out a little more. Since a lot of my friends have moved away to either go to school or work, I have little m...

My Northwest Territories Adventure

SEO Nick posted this 6 2,641 Views

Well. I did it. I dug into my shallow pockets, forked out 600 bucks and took a 2 day bus ride up North. I went for a couple reasons. One of them being to see my sister, niece, nephew and brother in law; another reason being me just wanting to go on some sort of adventure. I hopped on the bus at 6:00am on November 5th, at the Greyhound Bus Depot in downtown Vancouver. I was excited. I stuffed my jacket full of the essentials. My Ipod packed with Bowie, The Beatles and Pearl Jam, a small gu...

Hey Everyone! It's that time again! I get to spend some hard earned money on a much needed relaxing vacation! On Monday, I will be taking off on my venture to the Northwest Territories! It's a 2 day bus trip... so I won't be there until Wednesday sometime. I'm really looking forward to the bus trip up there! I actually bought a Ukulele specifically for my trip so I don't go through Guitar Withdrawels. I'm going to drive everyone on the bus nuts! I thought I should make this post t...

This is by far my favorite time of the year. The weather is bearable. Fall is setting in... which means the trees will start turning orange and the roads will be covered in leaves; but most importantly, Halloween is here! I'm not joking when I say I'm obsessed with this day. I've been dressing up ever since I was a kid. I think for two reasons. One: I LOVE horror movies. To actually dress up and pretend you're something scary or to pretend you're in a horror movies something I've always h...
