I'm a big girl now

I'd like to say that since my convocation I've been settling into my role as an adult nicely.

But that would be a boldfaced lie. My life has been more hectic than usual. . .except this time it's in a good way--even the difficult decisions. I finally feel like I'm moving forward, like I'm going someplace.


But there's always time to go back in time 15 years with my big brother. (The last time we went to Medieval Times, I was in third grade.)


Everyone says that you lose touch with your friends after university. But I'm guessing "everyone" didn't take an applied arts program at Ryerson. Right now, I'm seeing my friends more than I have in an entire year.


And I'm seeing friends I haven't seen in five years. Touko, who was travelling throughout South America, stayed with me this past weekend. It's the second time in the last three years that I've had a visitor from Finland. My International Alliance of Friends (as my brother would refer to it--he thinks I make friends just so that no matter where I go in the world, I have somewhere to stay. . .and it's kind of true) is stronger than ever.

  3. Congratumutations! It's about damn time!

    I still keep in close contact with lots of friends from both undergrad and grad school. But I have lost touch with my "drinking buddies". Sometimes it takes a couple years to realize which was which.
