Hi guys, hi!

a) I graduated! I now have an extra Bachelors degree, and I really am not certain why I bothered? but the proof is now framed and on my wall.

b) I have a place to live! A friend is moving for a year to do a postdoc, and I'm subletting her place. The thought of living on my own gives me a warm glow of satisfaction - especially since yesterday one of my roommates brought vegetables into the living room and started preparing them for dinner ... on the floor. (With a cutting board, but still.) The thought of having my own kitchen, my own fridge, and generally not having to clean up other people's messes is amazeballs. Also, I am looking forward to not having to wear pants.

c) It has been hellishly hot in Toronto (felt like 43C yesterday w/ humidity! That's 110F! W. T. F.), and yet I have tried to go out and do stuff in it anyway, and as a result I now have a large and uncomfortable cold sore. Turns out sunlight can precipitate them! Gross!

d) I spent a couple days with my small niece and it was lovely, although she finds it frustrating that I don't sign, and I don't properly understand her signs. I figured out "more" pretty quickly, though.

e) I recently read this memoir about a queer woman trying to get pregnant, and it was really good - painful, honest, well-written, and has a happy ending. Recommended! I picked it up a few nights ago intending to read a couple chapters before bed, and then it was 2AM and I was on the last page.

I think that is all for the moment? How are you guys?
