cassandra and the cherry blossoms


phew. lots going on! last week of semester, lots of organising and paperwork, choosing a phd / future and, of course, cassandra here!

we have done a little tourist stuff - tour of the drive, potluck with hundreds of people, trip to granville island and lots of pointing out the mountains. look! see how big! all snowy! she's been doing lots of exploring on her own and made sixteen friends and got twenty job interviews, etc. v. adaptable, our cassandra. i hope to link to her blog soon, once she sets it up, then she can tell her own stories!

it's lovely to have her here, nice to have some of my past here in vancouver, and of course she is fabulous company. hi, cassandra!


we had the union's 30th anniversary party over the weekend, so i've also been running around organising that - researching and writing the history walk, selling raffle tickets at the party, attending history panels and getting into great discussions about the purpose of the union, schmoozing at the dinner. it was great fun, but also kind of exhausting.

researching the history of child care on campus and within the union, i've become really interested in the politics of it all. i'm going to get involved on my new campus. in september! i'll have to make new friends! and study stuff! aargh!

oh well. i have a new friend already. i bought her last week. her name is edwina:

itchy - it makes a noticeable different to the taste of the coffee, actually. recommended. though the noise is a little startling first thing in the morning.
