    As I mentioned in a blog post a few weeks ago, I’m getting married this fall. It’s been a very exciting time, and we couldn’t be more excited to have our closest friends and family join us to celebrate our marriage.

    I truly believe what each couple wants on their wedding day is unique to them. Our vision is to celebrate with a small group of people who have impacted both our relationship and our lives. We have a few ideas that are important to us, and we are focusing on making sure those things happen.

    If you are anywhere between the ages of 20 and 35, you know exactly what I’m talking about. It seems that each week, another friend is announcing their engagement on Facebook. Although you feel extremely happy for them, you may wonder how your bank account is going to look post-summer, after you attend all of these weddings.

    Alright, just so this is out there - I’m getting married this September. We’ll be inviting friends and family, including those overseas, to join the celebration of our marriage. Whether they have just our wedding or 10 others to attend this year won’t really be a consideration – we’re inviting those we want to share our day to join us.

    Whether you are a student commuting back and forth to university, or have chosen to live outside the city or place you work, it’s important to be smart about your commute. I’ve been commuting to work for almost three years now, so I’ve learned a few tricks along the way.

    Plan around traffic – If you are able to choose your work hours, plan around the traffic. I come in early, which means I miss the traffic in the morning, and I’m able to leave before the big rush at 5 p.m. It’s made my commute much more enjoyable, and takes up less of my day.

    Online banking fraud is when a fraudster obtains your online banking information and uses it to log on and complete fraudulent transactions. The fraudster steals your password by infecting your computer with viruses and takes note of your typing.

    So what can you do to protect yourself?

    I was sponsored by Libro to go to CYL for three years.  Both of my older siblings had gone, so it was no big deal that I apply and go.  I expected to have an okay time… nothing too exciting... was I ever wrong.
