Last week

  • After six revisions this week, my thesis is almost in a defensible form. Yay!
  • Will defend my thesis on August 8. The end is in sight!
  • Took information processing aptitude exam. Need more practice in word problems, I think.
  • Declined a formal job offer after much deliberation. Intuition tells me to go into technical sales.

  • Awesome cooking and eating. Have decided to "live rich", and good food is part of that.
  • Read five books. More on this later.
  • Sewed a pair of Thai pants for Alice as a going-away present. Used too much material. It was fun, though. Thinking of next project...

  • Mailed care package to sister's boyfriend's dad.
  • Looked for virtual assistants in the Philippines following advice in book "4-Hour Work Week".
  • Could not find a single shirt I liked in Eaton Centre during the sale. May invest in tailoring.
