Slow Internet connectivity means that prototyping with Google Maps will be a royal pain. What else can I focus on? Maybe designing the research study...

Hanging out with my friends here made me realize that I really do need to go and meet more people in Canada. I *love* the chaos of a large friend group, the strong and deep relationships I get to form with them and they with each other.
I really like my friends there. I should meet lots of other people so that I can bring even more people into our group, the way my barkada here grew over time.
How can I go about doing that? I'll give pursudo and other meetup sites a try when I get back. I'll attend the Filipino cultural presentations, start going to the gym, take up dancing again. I'll focus on my work during the day so that I can make good progress on my thesis (I really want to finish that already!), but my evenings can be for fun. I'll see what I can do with Toastmasters. I'll find somewhere to volunteer. I want to meet other people who are crazy about life, and I'm sure I'll find them.
Random Emacs symbol: select-safe-coding-system-function - Variable: Function to call to select safe coding system for encoding a text.
I've been thinking about picking up tennis. I'm not in shape for it yet, but I think it will be a good move. If I can find a way to sign up for lessons here without having to buy a racket and make a large commitment, it would be good to try it out a few times. Outdoor tennis season is definitely over in Canada. The good thing, though, is that I can easily find a tennis buddy once I'm back there. San's been asking me for months. <sheepish grin> Yeah, tennis would work. It's exercise, it's social, and it's something I can keep practicing all my life. (Just look at Dr. Oposa!)
I should also brush up on my chess. It's been ages. I should still have my chess books around...
Random Emacs symbol: muse-colors-literal-tag - Function: Strip properties and mark as literal.
