Good News – Bad News

I have some good news-bad news in this blog entry.  The good news is this week I joined many of the people that blog here by gettting a job.  The bad news is finding the time to blog and work at the same time can be challenging, as I’ve experience these last couple of weeks.  I’m doing PR right now for an organization that helps local schools educate kids about the environment and possibly raise funds for them to plant a tree at their school.  Although I’m not an enormous environmentalist, I do like trees (with the exception of them getting in front of my 5 Iron) and I also like parks (especially ballparks).  Regardless of what I like, building a considerate and environmentally conscious youth I believe is a positive step for the future, so at least this is work that I can feel proud about doing. 

Its better than throwing out every perfectly useable but somehow slightly dented product at Wal-Mart.  That is one policy I did not like!!!!  I worked their for a brief time during school.   

Anyway, the outfit I’m working for is called Earth Day.  Here is our website for anyone interested: www.earthdayhamilton.ca.  The job is only until April, so my graphic design ambitions are not yet gone.    

With my time off blogging, I created an advertisment for my blog.  It combines three of the most important things to me in baseball.  The Blue Jays are represented by Carter’s homerun in 93′ along with my favorite player Roy Halladay, baseball history is represented by Gerhig and Ruth (the two players with arguably the most impact on it) and the bobbleheads represent how much fun I have talking about baseball with other baseball fans from all over, while somewhat bobbling my head at times I guess????

The best part is that they are all talkin homer!WereTalkin copy.jpg

    I love your advertisement! And they should all be talking Homer! lol! Congrats on the job! There must be something going around – my sister who was laid off from her computer job in October was offered a new job today! What you’re doing is important. We need to protect our environment. Good Luck!

    Homer,
    I really like the advertisement, it’s great! I’m glad you found a job, I think it’s great that you’re helping kids learn about the environment and what not. That’s going to be a huge part of the future to try and prohibit Global Warming. I hope your graphic design ambitions never end, you truly have a talent!

    Good for you guy.

    Glad to hear about your green measures. I have to say I am envious of the job, but then again, this blogging is my job right now and the pay is comments lol.

    We can all do more to save energy, the trees and also our ways of life. Simple things can mean so much to our kids. Sorry I tend to ramble on this since I went to an Al Gore seminar a year ago.

    Just do some blogging when you get the chance. Jot some stuff down in a notebook and do a collaboration blog of the week or other things until April. Some Homer blogs are a lot better than none of them.

    Great advertisement Jeremy…very creative! Congrats on the job as well. I actually work for the Region of Peel at a recycling facility now and love it (after almost 20 years at the SkyDome!). It’s good to see that you are helping educate youth about the environment. Gotta keep up with the blog though…I need my Jays fix. Good luck and hope to see some more blogs in the near future.

    Good luck with the new assignment (Finding time to blog-I know exactly what you mean).

    BTW, I checked out the site, I would like to make a small donation to the cause in your name (with your permission, of course).

    Don’t get too lost Homer. I know how you feel brother. I got lost moving and couldn’t get on the internet for awhile. Hit me up when you get back on and that is a sweet logo man. I like the job and I too love the environment so make money at something you like is the best way to do it!
