UPDATES: The High Canadian’s Crib

Hey folks.. as promised last night… finally getting back on here after a few days of what I call a “disconnect” phone and pc was off for about 4 straight days I think.. I try to go 3 days tech free every other couple of weeks to give my brain a break/rest…

So yesterday.. My beloved Girlfriend came home from work with a “SURPRISE” as she called it… turned out to be my PENSION paperwork after all…. finally I am sort of getting somewhere with these people… this had been dragging on for a few months (close to 5 months) to get simple paperwork in order (that probably only took the office 10 maybe 15 minutes max to draft up) in order to process my “transfer value” (lump sum payment of pension value, some locked in some not).

So this is all GREAT news.. I’m fully satisfied when I see the money in my accounts… I’ve already started looking into declaring “Financial Hardship” in order to leverage some extra money out of my Locked in Retirement Account (LIRA) in order to help further my education and to assist in me opening a business.. which segues me onto ……..

Other news... I registered a domain name, a DOT COM .. so keep an eye out for that in the future… I am hoping to move this blog over to there, or there over to here, something like that, anyway a merger of some kind will take place.. You may be wondering why I’m doing this, its pretty much because I have an idea of where I want to go and take my blog.. the NEXT LEVEL.. LoL…I am very much considering this business idea with my blog incorporated into it.. I’ve already got the idea in my head and have visualized this for some time now..I sorta held out on you all with this idea but here goes….I am hoping to create my own Cannabis Friendly vapor lounge (much like Chris Goodwin’s Vapor Central) … which will take the name of this blog.. The High Canadian’s Crib – Vapor Lounge – Social Arena 

I would ensure you are all aware of Opening Day, and have it broadcast on my UStream Channel so you can all participate in the witnessing of my opening day with me!

I have a plan in mind to go about living out my dream, which is to be my own boss – working in the cannabis industry.. its risky business.. but isn’t living out your dream worth risking for ? I think it is, otherwise how do I know if could or could not live out my dream otherwise, if I didn’t take said risk ?

In terms of education, I am looking at HVAC this summer.. not to get deeply rooted in the industry, but enough  to get my certifications or quals, make some money gain some experience, and just enough to know how best to purify and deliver clean air for my future cannabizness.. I think that bridge, of being able to relate my discipline of study and knowing full well the benefits of having gained said knowledge, and being able to apply that knowledge to my personal endeavors, is what could potentially push me towards success in my personal venture that much more..

The one thing I learned all these years working for others… is that I should work for myself, because I’m selfless when I work, and I’d rather be “selfless” to my own business and success than someone else’s business or dream..  I, just like all of you out there, have the capacity to create our own success… and if you don’t take charge and program your own mind to do so, external events or other people will gladly do it for you…

So folks.. that is my update.. rather small, somewhat insignificant to most people, but I don’t mind, I feel like I’m making some progress in my life finally.. and by that I mean in terms of becoming my own boss.. I mapped out a path to get myself there, I may need a contingency plan or 2 just in case..  so I will work that out also… I think life might be better lived if your working for yourself..




  1. Hey Josh, CONGRATS!! A big day for congrats: Glad to hear your pension paperwork and funds are finally coming through! That’s huge. AND CONGRATS ON THE BUSINESS PLAN!! That’s even bigger news. You won’t be disappointed. I’ve been self-employed since 1994 and I would never —and could never— go back to work for anyone else. Self-employment is a rollercoaster ride for sure and it ain’t always easy, but the tradeoffs are immense: no more asshole bosses, no more office politics, no more working with people you don’t like, no more rush hour traffic hassles….and well, i’m at home so I can stay in my pajamas all day and no one gives a shit! 🙂 Congrats. I’m happy for you. Sounds like your unplugged days were muy productive! Cheers to you…

    1. Well thank-you very much!

      Its not like an official business plan, but I got a plan, I am going to try and write a business plan though! no doubt about that.. haha.. Oh i expect some turbulance especially with a marijuana friendly business.. but as you say, trade offs are worth it.. time on the planet is too short to waste time doing something you hate or don’t enjoy for a lifetime.. i’d rather live my dream and be happy than rot for a lifetime and be happy just before I die.. lol if that makes sense..



    1. Thanks, I appreciate the encouragement!

      I picked up a little book earlier today, I’ll do a post on it, its actually quite packed with a bunch of mind expanding quotes all related to Cannabis and prohibition.. of course its titled “The Little Green Book” .. I’m quite pleased with it, its refreshing to read and got quite a few chuckles out of me while I read it on the bus earlier.. more to follow!!
