Rapidly approaching the end of January


in Daily updates, Toronto

Like the week before it, this weekend is set to be busy.

Tonight is a Robbie Burns dinner at Massey, with sword-dancing and a charity auction to follow, along with one of the infamous ‘low table’ parties. I will be taking photos during the formal parts of the evening.

Tomorrow, there are three climate change events in Toronto: one at city hall, one at Allen Gardens (including a march to the Ontario Liberal Convention at Maple Leaf Gardens), and one at a site along the route of the Enbridge Line 9 pipeline. A member of Toronto 350.org will be speaking at the third event.

Sunday, I have tutoring at 10am (helping my student complete a law assignment), followed by a meeting at 2pm. Sunday night, a friend and classmate of mine is hosting a party in Mordecai Richler’s old apartment at Trinity College.

Of course, I also have heaps of reading to complete for next week’s classes, deferred midterms to grade before my Monday tutorials, and innumerable little chores to accompany it all. I am also reading several new books: Jordan Peterson’s Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief in support of my self-deception class, Peter Russell’s Constitutional Odyssey: Can Canadians Become a Sovereign People? for one of my Canadian politics class, and Boyce Richardson’s Strangers Devour the Land for an academic book review.

Sounds like you have a pretty colorful and eventful weekend. With so much variety on your plate, you are not likely to get bored. I admire your ability to do so many things at the same time and not lose your focus and sense of responsibility.
