quick update

So in the last 3 weeks I: wrote 7 final exams, turned 23, started a new co-op job at a large scale greenhouse and worked 115 hours of the most physical labour I've ever had to do (its not really that hard, but all my recent jobs have been retail).  I'm exhausted, but I'm getting back into shape and used to waking up at 5am.  I've met some really great new friends at this job and I can truly say I learn new useful information almost all day every day which is exactly what I wanted to get out of co-op.  It's also nice to work for an employer I respect for once and for an organization that operates relatively efficiently.  That being said some parts of the job are infuriating and I have a new-found respect for greenhouses, plants, and most of all WATER since pretty much all I do for 6+hrs a day is "moisture manage" (watering) plants... 
I had a relatively uneventful birthday a few weeks ago - 23 feels no different from 22... but Tori, Vince and Dana came from Guelph with a killer soundsystem and Camden was super sweet and got Toni and Amira (Tonamis) to cater my birthday party!!  The night consisted mostly of falafel, sangria and turkish delight.  Soooooo delicious!  The next day we made sandcastles in Port Dalhousie :)
Oh and I cut all my hair off... the last haircut didn't quite do it.  The long curly mane was way too hot in the greenhouse so it had to go!
