Welcome to the new home of my blogages.
It’s a good, practical home. I’d consider it less of a large, family home full of ornate dust collectors, and more of a condo in the city that comes fully furnished. I picture it with floor-to-ceiling windows and post-modern Swedish furniture…
Where shall I start?
Biking season is in full swing for me and I’m having more fun on my two-wheeled friends than I have in a long time. I credit my enthusiasm to a few great rides on the Dakine team photoshoot in Oregon and the “Torpedo Trail” in Victoria. Thank you CRD. Thank you. Too bad I won’t be here for the rest of the summer to ride it, but it’s been a slice since I’ve been home these past two weeks.
For those of you who don’t know, I’m getting my master’s degree in intercultural communications at Royal Roads University and I was recently selected to a) make a film for my final thesis and b) present a short film that I made at the International Symposium on Symbolic Interactionism in Italy. What? You don’t know what that means? Don’t worry, neither do I really. It’s a communication theory about how stuff means things.
In the meantime, I’ve started working with the social justice organization Because I am a Girl. http://www.becauseiamagirl.ca – Check it out. I’m going to be more heavily involved in the program soon and with this new fully furnished blog I will be better at keeping you updated on what’s new in becauseiamagirl land.
Hmm, what else? I leave for Italy for my presentation in a week, fly home for 12 hours, fly to Wales for Ride Guide filming, fly home for 1 week, then fly to Sweden for Mattias Fredrikkson’s photo comp and the Are bike festival. Three Europe trips in a month and a half = lots of airmiles and plenty of jet lag. Please submit your best jet lag remedies below. The winner will win having me use their suggestion. How’s that for a grand prize?!
Ok, time to go for a bike ride to the pool, have a swim, and then research about how imagined nationhood plays a vital role to the vagabond traveller.
See your blog-scanning eyes soon!
