It's been a long time again since my last update, and a lot has happened. I tell myself I haven't updated because I'm too busy, but the real reason is that the amount of stuff to write about has gotten to be so large that the task is just too daunting. Rather than writing in detail, I will just do a quick catchup now, and then I'll try really hard in the future to not fall behind (yeah, right).
Matt and I moved into our place in Toronto last Monday, and the whole production went very smoothly (probably because we have very few possessions). We do need to buy a lot of things now, like a couch or maybe a chair, or any furniture at all for the living area. It's pretty bare right now.
We hooked up Internet right away, and it is really awesome. The building we live in shares an OC-48 line with a couple other condo buildings near by, which means that we get 100Mb Internet right to our suite. It's about 35 times faster than the average cable or DSL connection and it is only costing us an extra $5/month. Pretty sweet deal.
After moving in, we spent a couple days running around to get some things, but for the most part we accomplished very little. On Thursday morning we went back to Waterloo to write the Real Time exam (easy) and then I left the next day with Mike and Alex to go to Alex's cottage on Christian Island (it's the big one west of Thunder Beach).
The cottage was awesome! We basically just relaxed, ate food and went to the beach. We played lots of cards, and also got a change to drive a Sea-doo which was really cool too.
I'm back in Toronto now, and I am really enjoying myself. I love how easy it is to just walk out and get stuff, and I've already been out to eat at lots of fun places (and I'm going out for another *wing night* tonight).
Here are some pictures taken from my balcony, I'll take some indoor pictures once we have some furniture:
