Back After a Weeks Vacation

18 Jul
My Daughters Violet and Rhys.

This past week I took the first vacation from work I’ve taken in several years. I spent my time at home with my wife and my girls and I could not be more grateful that I had the chance to do so.

I got to take them shopping, and for ice cream, and got to do all kinds of cuddling and playing with them. It was a tiring week but one filled with love and joy. I can’t wait to do it all again!

Until then, it’s back to work!

Play Pokémon Go in Canada

Some people have asked me how to go about playing the game in Canada, so I thought I would detail how to get it done.

Android

Step 1) Download the APK here

Step 2) Install the APK. You may need to allow unknown sources to be installed. Once completed you are good to go. Just open the app and sign in with your google account.

iOS

This one is a bit more complicated, so I will add a link HERE to the full instructions by MobileSyrup.com

First Experiences with Pokémon Go

Although Pokémon Go is not out here in Canada, there are a ton of people who have it and are playing it all over the place. That being said, I thought I would post a story that happened to me a couple of days ago that I thought was pretty funny.

The night in question I decided to meet someone from reddit at Greenbank Square to go out and hunt some Pokémon.

We walked around a surrounding neighborhood, for a bit until we hit Ben Franklin Park 1 because there was a gym there that Marco (the redditor I met up with) wanted to take over.

So here we are at about 9PM in a parking lot trying to take over a gym. We noticed that there were a couple cars full of thugged out Lebanese  guys just sitting there watching us when one of them yelled over “Yo! You guys tryin to take that gym?!?! It’s a real bitch!”.

Marco and I couldn’t stop laughing about it! It was one of the funniest things that’s happened so far playing this game. The guys came over and we were all talking shop about the server stability issues and whatnot. It was like being 10 years old again and meeting a bunch of random new people! It was a really awesome experience!
