I feel like I don't really have anything interesting to say... but do feel obligated to update at least once a month! (In case anyone is still reading....)
I'm now in the thick of thesis work. I've yet to finish a course paper and an independent study, so my time is divided three ways (course paper, thesis, independent study) at this point. However, most of my day involves reading--for all three things. Some of the topics overlap, which is convenient, and also makes life more coherent!
I'm loving our new house--'our' being Ann, myself, and Rocky, a co-worker of Ann's who has moved into the third bedroom. It's great to have more space, and some personal space, and I'm still unpacking (books!) and rearranging how I want my room to be set up.
Things are still going wonderfully in the relationship department... Wonderfully. We celebrated 6 months on Friday, with an amazing (and, all a surprise to me) evening in the Distillery District of Toronto--dinner at a fabulous local restaurant, at which I had the tastiest chicken EVER (and it was free-range!), and out to the Soul Pepper theatre to see the Neil Simon play, "The Odd Couple"--wow. The acting was amazing, and the script was hilarious. And, Justin gave me roses... A perfect night, basically. Except it was pouring rain when we got out of the theatre. But hey, it didn't dampen our spirits at all! :)
This weekend is crazy with ICS stuff, and next weekend I'm going to Grand Rapids and Chicago (to see Justin's brother graduate from Calvin Sem and to see my sister and brother-in-law in Chicago). I'm trying to get TONS accomplished during the week so that I can feel guilt-free relaxing on the weekend!
