Another undergrad year is over and done, exams and all. I'm still waiting for one more final grade, but so far I've kept my (much-prided) A average, and even had another A+ added to the transcript. I've decided to take summer courses this year, as I'm getting really close to finishing (grad next year at this time ... keep your fingers crossed! ... if I can get the courses I need in Sept 2005 and Jan 2006).

The other morning, my roommate and I were pondering how eventful the past year has been ... not just in our personal/academic lives, but in the world in general. For example, we've had volcanic eruptions and a tsunami, and more recently, a change of popes. Our favourite soap opera (Coronation Street) has been pretty darned eventful, too! (If you don't watch this one, shame on you ... you SHOULD!)

All good things must come to an end, and roommates and I are all moving on. Only two of us will be back here in September (one being an international student, and one being a graduate student who has her course work done and will now be finishing her thesis at home). I'm moving down into PG proper (new phone # coming as soon as I'm organized, for those of you getting anxious 'cuz you can't reach me!). In a way, I'm dreading it. It has been OH SO NICE hearing nothing but the wind in the trees from my bedroom window. I haven't missed city traffic sounds one bit! Seeing the odd moose or two has been entertaining, except maybe for the surprise I got the day I exited the Library building just as a big moose tried to enter said building. In another way, I'm looking forward to it. I'll finally be able to explore more of PG, and even walk to Mass on Sunday! (I hear there's a craft store a couple of blocks away from where I'm moving . . . ) Living up here on campus has been very convenient, but at times felt a little isolated due to no late night/Sunday/holiday bus service.

So what are YOUR plans for the summer? Doing anything eventful? Going anywhere exciting? I may be on the move, but e-mail still works, so you've got no excuse for not e-mailing me!
