The new school year began for all of us sisters, and I would be amiss if I didn’t highlight the wonderful-ness that is the start of my last year of my Masters of Social Work.
I start off my second full time year with a light course load, but with a four day a week practicum placement. But that’s not the interesting part.
Mark it in your calendar:
JUNE 14th, 2013
Yes, we already have our convocation date for the program. If I was the type, I would create a vision board for this event.
I’m so excited about being done I have to remind myself that I do actually have a very full two semesters to get through first.
But there are also some other dates that are worth noting. So in that breath, here we go:
Tuesday, November 6th
We’ve got the juggernaut that is the US presidential election, with another bipartisan explosion between two oddly named nominees.
So far I have been able to determine that if we simply read transcripts of speeches we would probably think that we’re actually at the beginning of the 1980 presidential race. Seriously? We have to make a case for why women should have the right to medication and to have autonomy over their own body? And we are still living in a world where not one Republican voted for the Equal Pay Act? Seriously?
And did we all get a chance to watch Clint Eastwood’s descent into madness when he spoke to an empty chair?

Johnny Appleseed Day
The only reason I mention this obscure holiday is because A and I are currently obsessed with the fact that fall has arrived! As I’ve mentioned before, A and I used to be closeted fall lovers (or maybe just me), but no more. In our weather obsessed culture we rarely express our love for autumn because of the viciousness that is found in lovers of summer. Move over summer lovers. Time for some chilly weather and hot beverages.

Three important events on this day.
First, my good friend Leah is leaving for Fort Smith, Northwest Territories to take job as counsellor at a youth residential treatment centre. I predict it will be more than difficult, but a challenge she can meet! Scary, yes. But most awesome things are.
Second, is the celebration of marriage of a certain couple that is responsible for five kids, four great grand kids and one supremely awesome granddaughter.
Happy anniversary Grams and Papa! 58 years is awesome. And according to the last conversation I had with my ever increasingly macabre grandmother, she’ll hang on for another two years so she can say she made it to her sixtieth anniversary. Grams really knows how to inject excitement into a celebration, no?
And finally, something else epic will happen on this Tuesday, something that I’ve been waiting two years for…Ke$ha drops her new single “Die Young“!!! OMGEEEEEEE!!!
I can’t wait!!!
