Happy Birthday Tyson

Screwed with the background. I hope you guys don't hate me. It's been a month since any real girl has posted in this blog and I'm thinking I should be the one to step up and take control. I work tomorrow at noon, and I just recently came into a new netbook cord- thus I'm taking advantage and writing a post.

How's life? Here on my end it's a mix. It's always a mix. But I'm pretty sure I'm feeling more good than bad. A couple weeks ago I started teach adult/senior marimba classes up at the bradley center, and it's been a super bucket of pure joy to be working with Forrest. Also, compared to last year- I'm feeling that our classes are a lot more on the game. We've been blowing through songs and teaching a new one almost every other class.

I kindof wish we had more kumbana marimba time, but I'm sure that's just me missing playing marimba with my friends and soon enough I'll be starting it all up again.

Other than that, I bought a bunch of new clothes. Been working not as much as I hoped and enjoying excellent sushi.

Hope that's suffice for a little catch up. Maybe I'll more later.

I'm not that good at breathing in

Went for a short hike on the property of a pioneer. The park is closed for the winter and covered in about 3 inches of snow. I had forgotten that it is winter still. Myles' friend was there, long hair and beard the same colour as mine. When we were in the car driving to the park he was talking about his friend's graduation recital from the music department and said, "what day is it, the 16th?" And Myles had to gently tell him that no, it is March 2nd.
In the park the only sounds were the gurgling of the creeks running in every direction and the dripping of condensation from trees. We passed a couple wearing fleece jackets and tuques and kilts. They weren't wearing long socks or anything, just striding through the snow and fallen trees in their hiking boots and ankle socks.
Spent the day yesterday roaming downtown looking for a birthday present for my brother. It was snowing on and off and I ended up buying a bunch of little things for people I've been meaning to give gifts to for ages. So my paycheque is nearly washed up again.
And I'm dreading work a little bit tomorrow.
And I'm going to Calgary on Friday, gotta remember to figure out how to get to the airport from Langford. It's my grandmother's 80th that weekend and she will probably not be pleased with the crowds of us piling into her house. I am foreseeing cocktails and card games. I get to meet a whole bunch of babies. And a cousin.

Just assume I never have milk in the house, alright?

Just a short one today. I discovered that my coworker is from Greenland. Moments later, I walked outside, only to see the skies falling and giving me snow. I'm thinking that's a coincidence.
