Arrival in Vancouver!

Here’s something I’ve been forgetting to blog about:

I just moved to Vancouver last night. The VFS moved my classes up by two months, so I’ve been running around like a headless chicken trying to get everything ready to go (and somehow managing to stay on top of the latest Weird Al news in the meantime. Priorities, right?) The drive in was pretty insane, with heavy rain and me hydroplaning down the side of a mountain the whole way. I also saw a herd of bighorn sheep on the side of the road with a flock of tourists walking right up to them to pictures.

Anyway, I’m staying in my cousin’s guest room for about a week until I can get my hands on an apartment. VFS’ orientation starts tomorrow, so I have to start acquainting myself with the city. It was a disorienting experience driving into it last night since it was dark, raining, and my car was so full that I couldn’t check my blind-spots. So as far as I know, this whole city’s just a dark sea of ravenous motor vehicles and flashing lights. Hopefully that will change here in the day time. For now – I’m off to explore.

    Congrats! BTW, you haven’t posted any news about your OTHER Space Quest project for a veery long time. Any progress?

    LOTS of progress. It doesn’t show on your end, of course – but on my end, my social life is practically non-existent because of it.

    Well, back to the grindstone!

    Hey, guy! Sorry it’s taken me so long to respond to stuff. I’m not very good at being on teh Interwebz lately, due to work stuff. ANYWAY. Do you want me to put you in touch with any of my Vancouver friends? You’ve already met one or two of them. Either way, you have a kickass arts scene and the most awesome vegetarian and vegan and organic food ever now.
