I have jumped all the hurdles up to and including the Massey lecture, leaving the three really big tasks to wrap up.

By Monday, I need to read a book on aquaculture and re-read some of the assigned readings for my environmental policy class. I need to lay out a bibliography for my take-home exam, write a draft, and finalize the thing. Then, I need to come up with three questions about the readings for my public policy course.

By Tuesday, I need to carefully complete my public policy readings, lay out a bibliography for my paper, write a draft, proofread and finalize it, and prepare a 15-minute presentation with speaking notes.

After that, I can move on to dealing with the huge heap of boxes that is currently occupying most of my study – representing the long-delayed conclusion of my four summer moves.

If I manage to get the Trudeau scholarship, it’s exciting that I will be able to stay in Massey over the summer and avoid such inconveniences. I will also get that late-30th birthday Fuji X100S, which would be an amazing camera to carry around all the time and do some beautiful informal photography with.
