This little bird was busy with:
a) a friend visiting from Ontario
b) a contract
d) all of the above
The answer, ladies and gentlemen, is D!!!
It’s been a good past few weeks. Alice and I had a friend visit from Ontario, and we toured Vancouver with her. We even went to Vancouver Island for a quick peek. Apparently my friend lives for the saying of “it’s the journey, not the destination” because the thing she was most excited about was the ferry ride there and back 😛 The island itself looked quite beautiful, from the little we got to see it, and I would love to go back for a few weeks to actually travel across the island. And go snorkeling with the seals! (Lack of money, and insistence that it’s winter and the water would be too bloody cold, prevented that from happening this trip).
Managed to win a very nice contract that lasted a bit over a week; I was reviewing a company’s GAMSAT practice quizzes. Oh memories of when I was studying Nanotechnology Engineering (which in general are not quite so fond, after all, there is a reason I switched programs :/).
Housework is always time consuming, but I got to attempt making a homemade pho soup, which was fun. It actually turned out decently – not nearly the best I’ve had, but something hinting at that greatness I would like to eventually achieve.
Now, however, the contract is ended, the friend is gone, so it’s back into the usual. Forgot to keep applying to contract while working on the other contract, so I won’t have much to do for a while until I find more work…sigh.
Well, there’s always League of Legends! And Mass Effect. I might write more on these later.
