I assure you that it hasn’t been six months since the last update. You’re just imagining things.
Anyway, since the last update, a lot has happened! I’m getting ready to defend my master’s thesis in one week and I can’t wait to be done. It’s my last program requirement and then I will have my master’s finished and be done with school (well, for at least a year). After my defence, Sam and I are going on a cross-country road trip to visit friends and family, eventually ending up in Victoria to see our wedding venue for the first time!
Meanwhile, Sam is also making progress on her degree. She finished her last comprehensive exam last month and is now having a much less stressful time of things. She’s also had her research profiled in the local news outlets, which is exciting.
The biggest change recently has been our move to a new house. We loved our old neighbourhood, but we had to move for neighbour reasons. I guess that’s the risk of being a renter. Anyway, our new house is fantastic and Sam is especially happy about outfitting her new walk-in closet. Trevor was a huge help in the moving process, donating his afternoon and his car to help us drive boxes. We’re all settled in, and the new place has been great. We’re also on a bit of a health kick (while Sam is watching), with a 100 day of fitness challenge and farm-fresh veggies from a local farmer.
Will update sooner next time, I promise!
