Now I'm all wet :'(
To eat, or not to eat.
There's quite a bit I'd like to write about eating with regard to myself and this past year. However, I cannot find the time to write it! I will mention that last year I complained that I frequently ended up in situations wherein I felt hungry. This year, the opposite: I spoil myself instead.
Wake up, the sky isn't falling.
What a strange sleeping pattern I've adopted. It is now in synchrony with my girlfriend's, more or less. I will note that this particular T.A. experience has been exceptionally rewarding. One of the major benefits has been a revival of my sense of responsibility. Due to overwhelming school load, I was beginning to feel irresponsible enough to make me doubt myself.
I am my most responsible when people entrust me with responsibility. When I don't feel trusted, my performance is impacted. Trust me, and I won't disappoint you!
Wait, what does being a T.A. and awkward sleeping patterns have to do with one another? Right! I spent the night completing my portion of the exam marking. The third page, the one I marked, was the longest of the three, but pleasant heuristics developed to expedite the process. It is fun, to work throughout the night and have something accomplished before (or shortly into) the morning. However, Tuesday morning saw me waking up at 6:15AM and waiting 30 minutes for a 7:00AM bus to campus. And this was wonderful. The snow has melted recently and spring is new. It was warm enough for me to feel cool with just a sweater on. The sun slowly rose. I met some of my students on campus, and found one sleeping on a couch. ("Wake up, the exam is in an hour!" I said, as I swatted her with a newspaper.) I did a fair amount of running between buildings too, as I looked for the other T.A.s before the exam was given. Mornings are very nice indeed.
Milk - in a bottle!
I have started using Remember the Milk to maintain a todo list. As does my girlfriend, I find it lacking. Mostly, it is cumbersome, and is lacking in usability. My intention is to use it in conjunction with tasque when it's ready. I am actually mildly alarmed about potential privacy issues with Remember the Milk, so I should really look into that some more ... :D Right now, I am refraining from providing private details, but perhaps street names are even too much! Mwahaha.
The last goodbye.
Since I am striking out on adventure soon, I am trying to say Goodbye to as many people as I can in person. Frank, Kate, Victoria, Vlad, Shane, Emily, Ashley, Danielle, etc. Good night Ontario crew. I hope you all fare well in my absence. (A likely story.) I am concerned for my dog (he's very old) and my father (he just turned 39/72!). At least my brother won't be leaving Ontario any time soon, now with baby imminent! Wow, life is hectic.
I have to sleep to start studying for an important Friday exam, so Good Night.
