I haved moved into the new place, and it is very nice. Scandalously, there is no internet. As such, updates will be infrequent until I can pay some Canadian telecom company way too much for broadband.

Life without high speed internet makes one feel fundamentally cut off from the world – like one is stranded in an obscure village on an unknown continent.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

    Quite. Though I am not looking forward to have to deal with the telecom companies. I see installation fees and headaches in the near future.

  3. I have decided to go with TekSavvy as my ISP. They seem to be well reviewed and they are good on the phone.

    The only problem is that I don’t know how I can be at home during the day for installation.
