My TA chickens came home to roost this week, and I found my third advisor. 15 hours a day in the office makes Jim a bit of a dull boy, but despite that it’s been a pretty eventful week. The biggest news is that I was at the Project Macfrica Night last night, which was a great time, and that I got accepted to attend TEDxWaterloo. Last year’s TEDx taught me a lot about myself, the kinds of things I want to do, and how I need to change the way I think in order to do them. I’m not sure what will happen at this year’s, but I’m looking forward to it.  (more…)


Weekly Update: Superbowl Sunday

Day Draws to a CloseIt’s Superbowl Sunday, but I’m more than happy to be in my office here at UW working on papers and event materials. I can get all the football updates I want from Twitter, after all. I’ve got a few exciting things to talk about this week, the most exciting of which is that we have a new sponsor for Canvas and Candlelight. In addition to being entered into a draw for Day Draws to a Close, generously donated by Nik Harron, every package purchased nets you a ticket into a separate draw for a hand made cedar planter from Great Saunas. That means that even if you win a planter, you can still win the painting! Come out to THEMUSEUM on Valentine’s Day, have a great time, and support community art programs like Homer Watson House’s Art in Focus. A ticket for two to the whole event is just $50, so get yours now! (more…)


Community and Changes

There’s going to be some changes around here in the next few weeks. I’m going to dust, polish up the pages, and get the lead out. And mix metaphors to great effect. Grad school is coming along swimmingly, but I’m not going to be here forever. I’ve realized that it’s high time to start looking for some gainful employment if I want to remain in a position where I can give back and participate in my community. If you, or anyone you know in the Kitchener Waterloo area is looking for someone with excellent writing, communication, critical thinking, and counterfactual skills, drop me a line at I’m going to update the site over the next while to reflect that, and I’m looking forward to it. I’m also going to start doing weekly updates, both about what I’m doing professionally, and interesting things going on in the city. I want to share these with you, and it will also make sure that I’m constantly pushing myself to participate. (more…)
