Everyday life is upon me, and it's great. Here are some points of the last week:
Monday 14.30: I have just finished an interview downtown, and the sun beams down over the freezing city. I walk past some beautiful buildings.
Tuesday 10.42: I try to make banana pancakes for breakfast, but I fail miserably and eat yoghurt instead. I skype with people in the kitchen.
18.48: I meet Kenneth for dinner, and we eat fish'n'chips at Comptoir 21 (21 Rue St Viateur Ouest, Mile-End) followed by beer at classy Sparrow (5322 Boul. St Laurent, Mile-End).
Wednesday 16.51: On my way to visit Sophie at Moment Factory, I finally snap a photo of the schoolbus that runs up and down my street with the Jewish kids. It's like a film.
Thursday 11.20: On my way to school I notice how the tall buildings downtown resemble robots.
11.32: I ride the schoolbus and stand up front as the sun lights up the snow.
Friday 13.58: My street is beautiful in sunlight.
14.38: I go to the international office at the downtown campus, and there's a marvellous view over the buildings in sun.
15.58: On my way to a coffee date at Plateau I look at buildigs at Boul. St Laurent.
16.11: I meet Hui for coffee and a sinful peanut-chocolate-cookie at Café Névé (151 Rue Rachel, Plateau) - I haven't seen Hui since 2007, and we talk for three hours. Wonderful!
Saturday 12.19: I'm presently sitting in my bed with coffee about to get started on homework. I have taken a class in the Film Studies department called Late Silent Film. I'm pretty excited! Have a good weekend out there!
