I thought I would actually try to insert some photos for the first time. Today I had the pleasure of being a guest at our local CBC radio station 89.1FM. Here is their website http://www.cbc.ca/kitchener-waterloo/. I got to meet 3 very awesome people today. Andrea Bellemare, Jacky Sharkey, and of course Craig Norris. They made me feel really welcome and made my first on-air radio experience a blast! They said that my story went viral! I can see why they choose to do this every day! Andrea reached out to me via Twitter and asked me to join them in studio to share my story. I was slightly nervous at first and I have to apologize to Craig because at the start I was looking down more then I was looking at him. You wear earphones and can hear each other so I think my brain forgot that I was still having a conversation with a real live human sitting right across from me. The interview wasn’t long but it was fun! You can listen to the interview by going to that website. If anyone has issues let me know via email and I will send link that way. I got some awesome swag which included a hockey puck which my mom thought was pretty cool!!
Here are some pics from my time at the station
Me sitting pretty in the booth getting ready.
Chatting away with Craig.
All done! Whew made it.
Me and the lovely Andrea!
A great time had by all 🙂
I also did a Facebook discussion which didn’t start out so well. After an initial hiccup it got somewhat going. I answered some really great questions some were left there from hours ago but a few people dropped by to say hey! It was a great experience where I also got to know a very lovely lady by the name of London who helped me stay on track and made sure I didn’t forget anyone’s question.
I also want to share that I broke down today at work and bawled my eyes out. My manager came over to see if I was alright and told her they were happy tears. I have been so overwhelmed with the out pouring of love, admiration, and well wishes. It’s a lot to handle in a short time. A week ago I had taken the day off work because of an expected ice storm and stayed home Friday because it hit and EVERYTHING was covered in ice. Want to see?
My point is a week ago I had NO clue what I was getting myself into. It’s been a crazy ride a fun one but man….I’m still shocked. Maybe my “breakdown” was a sign that maybe it’s starting to sink in?? Thanks again to all of YOU…. you know I’m going to keep saying that right!! Right??
Tomorrow is a new day and another new adventure!
