facets of my game, by p. benjamin gibson

hello and welcome to my blog entry.  my name is ben gibson. i am an international programs coordinator at youth challenge international.  i have been working at YCI for 2 years.  it is a very excellent and marvelous place to work.  in my time here, i have met many friendly and pleasant human beings–splitting my time between HR and finance.

recently, i took time out of my hectic work schedule to embark on a road trip out to the eastern part of canada.  i went to saint john, new brunswick / gros morne nat’l park in newfoundland / halifax, nova scotia. it was a very excellent trip–saw alot of interesting places, beautiful landscapes, et cetera.  for this blog, i will be presenting you with some photographs of my trip out east, and have contrasted these pictures with some shots of me working at the YCI office in toronto.  these are the facets of my game, friend: witness work and trip.

WORK:

Feel free to have a look at a couple of shots (this one and the next one on the right) of me giving someone helpful feedback.  Polite but firm is my way.

Turned out there wasn't any wind on that sailing excursion.  It was still relaxing though.

This is me driving an automobile and eating dulse.  Dulse is dried seaweed.  I wasn't huge on it, to be honest.
