Bits of randomness

I haven’t contributed to Terry much these days, which makes me feel like a horrible blogger.  So I’ve decided to do a weekly or bimonthly column (depending on how busy I am) on random things that have happened to me throughout the week.  Hopefully it will bring a touch more “thoughtful light randomness” into this world.  Do not expect to be challenged intellectually.

Monday: a discovery of the NY Times’ Monday blog which synthesize consumer-focused stories.  Good for beginning-of-the-week procrastination.

Tuesday: N1KD (aka. Night of a Thousand Dinners) happens.  I didn’t go but read up on landmines to assuage my slight guilt at not helping out a worthy cause.  Plus apparently Dr. Sens found himself in a suit, which leads me to wonder if he wore a Hawaiian shirt with it.

Wednesday: Two papers due in geography and french yesterday.  The stress leads me to create a birthday mystery for my friend that is overseas in Greece.  I send her five clues to solve spread over a week or two, at the end of which she gets her present.  Holiday gift idea anyone?Plus, Glee was on and I love me some musical jazz hands.  This week’s episode: “hairography”.  Love.

Thursday: Found about Mr. Frederick’s interesting approach to combating rising tuition fees (more discussion here).  This led me to worry about my finances and therefore think about applying for a job at the airport.  On an unrelated note, found the tidbit about the couples that trespassed at Obama’s state dinner quite funny.  Also, loved the First Lady’s dress.  Pretty.

Friday: Got some presents at the holiday gift fair in the SUB.  Also searched for some eco-friendly gift ideas.  I wonder how my 8 year-old cousin would like the gift of a tree?

That’s my week.  If you like bits of randomness as much as I do, let me know so I’ll do this weekly instead of well, randomly.

Tiffany is twenty and a citizen of two and a third countries. She is firmly unscientific in her thoughts, preferring the arts even though she got better grades in science during high school. She is not exactly sure what she's doing at UBC (it must needs do with learning, growing?) but there she is. IR and French are her focus- but then again she is sort of unfocused in general.
