I've been busy and not...
working a fair bit (at a Gap Kids store downtown part-time) and busy shopping. haha. I've finished my Christmas gift buying except for the hardest two - my brother and my grandpa.
Mostly because my brother has interests in things I know nothing about - cars. And my grandpa has everything you could ever think to buy him. Suggestions accepted if you know of anything!
Otherwise, in life:
Steve and I finally had a little book club. He's been so busy with school that it ended up being a book he had to read to teach from, but that was ok by me.
We read: The Visit a play by Friedrich Durrenmatt
It was really interesting and thought provoking. As I suppose texts that are studied my philosophy majors would and should be. A brief synopsis without spoiling it: A woman returns to her hometown 50 years after being forced to leave in shame. The town has fallen into dire economic times. She offers $500 000 to the town, and $500 000 to the residents (a lot in 1955) if they kill one man.
Obviously this raises many social and ethical issues, which the play deals with in a thoughtful and "non-preachy" way. The book is under 100 pages, but Steve and I had a lengthy discussion afterwards.
I have also spent my time on schoolwork, we've done some studio photography sessions now, and I am having great fun with them. My coworker Cynthia came to be a model last week - we had a blast.
annnnnddd, my friends and I had a cookie swap this past weekend. I spent 4 hours making triple batches of what turned out to be the most amazing cookie I have ever made. Time well spent. And then on Saturday we partied, I made homemade apple cider and we all traded our baking efforts. (Sorry, I didn't take pictures!) Now I have 2 giant tupperware containers of cookies and sort of feel a bit sick from all the sugar. hah.
