Cinderella’s has been a labor of love of mine since July 10th 2003, and was an inspiration long before that.  I try to update it as frequently as a can – for the year 2010 I am running a project where I post every single day of the year – you can safely expect a post 4 to 5 days a week normally.  What I write about are things that are interesting to me, recipes I like, ideas that I have, and stories I think of.  Really, anything that comes to my mind.  I like to write passionately, and I hope the writings will be something of interest to you.  I was inspired to start a by reading “Where’s my burrito”, the writings of Wil Wheaton (http://wilwheaton.typepad.com/ ) in 2001, but I could never quite manifest the blog into being until 2003.  Since then, this blog has blossomed from random rantings and musings, to much – much more.

It has become one of my passions.

It has become a part of me.

Who am I?

My name is .

I am a Canadian, living in Victoria, .  I was born in Fort Langley, but spent most of my formative years living with my family on our island: Dayman Island.  There we farmed shellfish, and had 24 acres as our private paradise.  We moved to (a suburb of Greater Victoria) when I had graduated beyond the tiny little one room school of Thetis Island, and needed greater education opportunities.  is where I went to high school, learned to drive, and became an adult.  Currently I reside in Victoria – one of the most beautiful places in the world.

I am passionate about many things – , writing, technology, the internet, travel, animals, monopoly, , , sharks, health and fitness, nature and the ocean – you can expect to read about all those things and more within the posts of this blog.

I love my Mac.  It is a vehicle for me to get to a lot of my passions.  It allows me to write on the go, edit photographs, play , create audio files, write , and so much more.  It is almost my muse.  Without this beautiful piece of hardware – I surely would be lost.  I think because of my love for my mac, and really all things Apple, that I might be called an Apple Fan Girl.  I guess that shoe really fits, because I am very enthusiastic about Apple products.

I am also a gamer.  I love video games.  Any genre, any platform – I just adore them.  This can not be stated enough, because video games are a fairly large part of my .  I even wanted to write video games, and at one point considered a career in video game design, but I am not a code monkey.  However if a company came to me asked me to write a story for a video game, I think I would probably pee my pants in excitement.  That would truly be a dream come true.

I want to become a Travel Writer & Photographer. Something in that field is calling to me. I have come to realize that Travel Writing covers most of my passions – and would allow me to perhaps peruse them all with equal vigour and get paid to do it.  I love writing deeply, and creative fiction and internal musings are things that give me such joy.  As does photography – in all it’s forms. I would love to be a Travel Writer or a traveling photo journalist, or maybe a photographic writer for National Geographic specializing in sharks.  Perhaps a novelist, or a photographic artist.

Besides my blog, I have written for the gaming news site Game Rant, so feel free to check them out, and check out my stories.

And during the whole journey – this blog will be here.

It is a part of me, and I share it with you.
