Weekly review: Week ending July 4, 2010

We had a four-day weekend thanks to Canada Day, and boy, did we ever make use of it. The three big things were lots of parking practice, lots of canning (95 bottles of jam on the wall, 95 bottles of jam! – well, technically, a few bottles had apricot syrup), and a new hobby: playing the ukulele.

Work

Relationships

Plans for next week:

Work

Relationships

Having realized that I should trust people more to make their own decisions and that when I invite people, I’m not imposing on them, I think I’ll organize more get-togethers. =) I used to do this back home, too. I like doing things together more than just hanging out, so if I put some thought into it, I can experience new things and help friends experience things too. Besides, there are a number of new friends in Toronto and a number of people getting the hang of grown-up life, so it’s practically my duty to help people try things out. =)  So I’m planning to be more intentional about looking for opportunities and events, and we’ll figure out some way to organize get-togethers.
