Christmas News

It figures that I have a final on the 20th of December at 7pm. It definitely puts a hamper on my extended holiday season but at least there is not excuse about not having enough time to study. Thought I'd let you all know :(

November ????

I can't believe it's November already, where October go? where did September go? I'm not ready for winter yet!! I've been really tired lately, maybe it's the weather, shorter days, too many naps, I don't know but if I were standing guard somewhere I'd be asleep in my chair...or on the floor. I'm really excited about doing an internship this summer. There are some in Peru, Venezuela, Ghana, Zambia and more. They are volunteer posistion but they are completely funded by the university. I wish I could do two or three of them. They're 3 month internships so that means I wouldn't get to take courses this summer which means I would graduate next April not December but I think it's worth it. One is with the UN but that's in Italy and another is with CIDA in Peru.

Other news is that I'm going to have to postpone the Fair Trade Fair I wanted to organize with ten thousand villages before Christmas. We'll have to do it in February I guess. Otherwise, I want to organize a meeting, pressure the University to order paper with a higher post consumable recycling percentage and maybe create a Toronto resource website for York Students, maybe as a link to the IDS webpage, who knows :). I' m going back to reading now
