A Year in Review

Skip to the end of the email if you just want free stuff 😉This time of year to take time to write about each accomplishment and detrimint during each month of the year. What went well, what could I improve? I write out each month of the year individually and state what big tasks were accomplished. First, it helps me come tax time, when it’s all organized, but second, it’s good to relfect on how close I am to my actual dreams. A resume I keep, I write every show I have ever taken part. This year, I am proud to say, I have reached some milestones I once fantasized about.

  • I attended 4 Busking Festivals across Canada, making it my first performing tour.
  • I helped refugee kids in Thailand for 2 months with SPARK! Circus
  • My first National TV appearance is coming shortly, and I had many TV appearances from the Toronto Busker Festival.
  • I will have taken part in organizing over 20 events in my lifetime!
  • I was noted in publications like Digital Journal for the Toront Busker Festival and Trip Wolf as a Busker in The Busking Project Documentary
  • I won my first photo contest
  • My photos were published for the first time.
  • I was honored to be Dolly Hopkins Women of the Month for the Month of October, that’s the best birthday present I have ever recieved!
  • I have now been in over 300 shows, not including busking, which puts my actual number of shows around 1000!

Next year I have dreams to become a world record holder, I would like to tour in the Maritimes (I’ve never been!), and I would like to “complete” my 45 minute circle act, with promotions so I  can create a 2014 tour and I would like to finally learn French.

Do you reflect on what your year was like?

Do you have big dreams for the up coming year?

SPARK! Needs your help!

“Spark! is an international volunteer circus organization that teaches playshops, performs spectacular fire shows, and donates toys, tools and art supplies to disadvantaged children along the Northern Thai-Burmese border. Our amazing team of twenty volunteers gives over 6 weeks of our time to bring play, creativity and laughter; reaching over 4,000 refugee and migrant children each year.  We are going from January 5 to February 22nd, 2013.

Spark! Circus has done this for the last 7 years. We pay our own way. We pay our own food and accommodation. Each of us raises funds in our own communities to donate to project costs. We work hard, travel on local buses and sometimes sleep rough. We volunteer to perform for and teach children who have nothing, not even identity papers…

If you remember, I have been a part of SPARK! Over the last 2 years now. However, I am devoted to my studies to get my Bachelors of Social Work and I will no longer be able to attend as a part of the troupe. However, I wish the team success, and with that, I am passing on to you a chance to help.

Spark Circus Currently has an fundraising page. It needs to fundraise to be able to travel to each of the schools and help buy the children toys to play with after SPARK! leaves. Children need to play! Give what you would pay on a coffee to a small child with no home, no registration and no fun in their lives. Every little bit helps.
