North of the border


I've spent the past few nights here in Canada staying with an old college friend, Yashy.

She's the only Bates friend I've met on this trip, so it's been fun to reminisce with an old friend about the good old days of living in the Bill; wrestling in yogurt, boobytrapping the hallway outside of our JA's room, everyone in the building hitting on Yashy's roommate...

Two things stand out from my time here in Toronto: the 12th annual Toronto Festival of Beer, and watching Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" tonight in High Park.

But I must admit I'm tired. I've grown weary. I've been on the road for more than two months now, and though I often thought I could do this forever, I also have to admit that on every trip there is a time when home calls. I look forward to returning to familiar surroundings where I can process all that I've been through.

Until then, I'll try my best to pump out a few more decent posts...
