I shall see thee anon, Vancouver

I had my goodbye party yesterday…when I saw all these wonderful people it slowly started to sink in that I’m leaving in just over three days! Thanks to everyone who came out, I had a lot of fun and ate far too much. With the party all said and done I have only to pack for my imminent departure – that is my big goal for this week: pack ahead of time so Thursday is sane. I’m also hitting the ice on Monday and Tuesday, maybe Wednesday as well.

Count backwards from three and breathe.

I experienced two lasts today: my last shift at cafca *tear tear tear*, and the last shot of Sammy Piccolo’s WBC 2009 Blend.

First, the cafca shift – it was pretty slow, especially for a friday. Read more…

Hello, big bad intraweb. Nice to meet you.

As for the rest of you, welcome to the inaugural posting on The Musings of a Gingerkid (aka muag)! I suppose I should introduce myself…my name is Tim and I was born and raised in North Vancouver, B.C.

I’m a half-Aussie, quarter-Brit (the remainder is Canadian) that loves coffee, politics, music, laughter, people, and life in general. I graduated this year from Handsworth Secondary and I’ll be off to McGill (Montréal) in the fall. My lofty goals for my time there in my first year include: varsity hockey (the McGill Redmen) ,and a job at one of the premier cafés in Montréal, Café Myriade. Of course, if I do end up playing varsity hockey then I will very likely not have time for a job, but I hope to be able to put in a few shifts there at some point. Read more…
