Making a window

So, it's still inadvisable to try to walk into the Shed, but I've decided to build a window so that you can have a look at what's going on inside without risking your dear lives.

Feel free to tell me what kind of thing I should put close the the window. Some things will just be too far away, or at a bad angle, or blocked by other items, and you may not be able to see them if you don't ask. So feel free to ask.

So first of all, I'd just like to say that Anzel/Dawn and I are not currently together. Not sure whether that will be definitive or not. Just don't be shocked when I say there's a chance I'll start dating a girl from uni. Which there is, and it may not take long. Or be shocked anyways. That might be more fun to watch. But still.

Random fact: Toronto International Airport is freaking huge. My São Paulo - Toronto flight lands, and I have to walk like 10-15 minutes to reach customs, and then after getting through that and everything else, another 5-10 minutes to reach the terminal for my Toronto - Kelowna flight.

Back to Uni facts:
- I love the snow <3
- I'm going to miss having Scott, Jeff, Downey and Cass in my Creative Writing Class. At least Katie C and Danny are still in that class.
- Marilou's New Media class is boring as ever. At least we're learning Premiere Pro now, which I know very little of.
- I missed Tim Hortons!
- I missed my friends, but now they're all here! Except for Vivek. He's only coming next week, for some reason.
- I can't wait for the Jump Start Reunion on Friday and the Creative Writing Course Union meeting on Saturday. I miss those groups of people, too.

And... Um... Oh, I recently read Speaker for the Dead and Xenocide by Orson Scott Card, both being sequels to his Ender's Game. If you like science fiction, go read them. There are more books in the series, but right now I'm reading The Scar by China Miéville (my favorite author), so I'll get to them later. And speaking of Miéville, regardless of which genres you like, you should read his Bas-Lag novels. Perdido Street Station, The Scar, and Iron Council. You don't have to read them in that order, but that's the order in which they were written and the order in which they happen; the story lines just aren't strictly linked to each other. Perdido Street Station is my favorite book of all time.

Enough rambling for now. I'll post again when something interesting comes up.
