Small Town Kid, UNTIL Magazine
June 10, 2023
Lobbezoo writes a short creative non-fiction piece about growing up as a farm kid in the tiny town of Lynden, Ontario, and going to visit the local Co-op with her father.
Memory was the topic of Issue 5 of UNTIL Magazine, a brilliant online journal created to showcase artists UNTIL the pandemic is over and life returns to a new normal.

This blog post was written for a friend's business site while Lobbezoo was creating a life coaching business.
Lobbezoo finds it relevant to her current work as a writer because an artist is a kind of entrepreneur who has a multi-faceted role: doing the work (writing), refining and pitching and sell the work, motivating oneself, staying organized, and so on.
"Teacher Journal," Sias University
Freshly graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Arts in History and Linguistics, Lobbezoo moved to China in summer 2006 to teach English at Sias International University. She taught (and became the Sophomore team leader) for a second year as well before heading home in 2008.
Lobbezoo was asked to write a reflective piece on her experience as a teacher living on campus at Sias.
