Massive Update

It's been a while... and I apologize for the lack of posts. The truth is that I have been really busy finishing school and one that finished, trying to enjoy myself. Here's a rundown of what I have been up to:


I was in Toronto on Easter weekend. Seeing some friends from back in the day and getting to know my old home again. It was great seeing everyone. I also got a chance to visit the Art Gallery of Ontario (aka the AGO).

The AGO just underwent a huge renovation that included the installation of a Frank Ghery designed staircase:

There was also some great stuff done by an artist that carves out trees to reveal what the tree looked like at a specific point in its growth without bark:

After I got back from Toronto, the rest of April was my final "run" at school as my last exam was May 2nd.


School finished with a bang, as you would expect. Working and going to school wasn't too much fun but I was glad it was over. I actually didn't consider myself finished until I saw my transcript. And didn't really feel any sense of accomplishment until I actually got my degree.

Here's me at the Rose Garden in my gown. It's really hard to make a grad hat look good isn't it.

My parents and I had a great week and were able to get out to Tofino:

I am also proud to say that I finally got myself a bike. If you know Doggler, you will know why I call it "Doggler II". Anyways, I'm loving having a bike as it has opened the city to me in a whole new way. As much as I can, I like to get out to the beach after work to watch the sun go down.

Saw a great sunset a few weeks ago out on Third Beach (go third beach rangers).

I also went to Vegas for a weekend: Crazy place. Fun.... but crazy. Everything is Cirque Du Soleil. It's like Quebec in the desert in that sense.

Also, I am in the process of looking for work. I have a few things on the go and a few interviews coming up so we'll see what develops. I have to say that I am really excited to be moving on with my life and I can't wait to see what happens next.

Take Care,
