Southern Accent

Today I had my first unofficial Southern Accent staff member orientation. If this afternoon is any indication, the next 8 months should be hectic, crazy and possibly a little stressful. But within a few weeks everything should start to calm down and maybe I'll be able to settle into a routine. I really hope this year is an educational, growing and exciting experience.

For more info on the Southern Accent, watch Viviene Martinelli's promotional video made for a digital video class last semester.

Lifesaver Bottle

*Inspired by Ruben's Facebook status update on 08/04/09.

Although I don't understand all the inner workings of this invention, I find the concept fascinating. Even so, I'm not completely sure I would actually want to drink the water, no matter how clean it truly is. Of course, I am able to hold a glass under the kitchen tap and, within seconds, drink as much delicious and healthy BC well water as I want. The fact is, there are millions of people around the world who don't have the same privileged of clean drinking water as me. And that's why this idea intrigues me.
