    It's been such a long time since I took the time to write on my online journal. Apologies to all who have patiently waited and secretly hoped for some word(s) from me.
    Spent my early spring break in Montreal with my pal Salam. We really had a good time getting to know each other face-to-face and walking all over the city. The coffee shops were amazing: only three Starbucks--the rest were small, private cafes that served good coffee and provided an atmosphere conducive to conversation and writing. To wade through knee-high snow was an experience that I miss from my time in Europe.

    Six more weeks of class remain until the summer terms begin. I'm almost finished, I have to keep reminding myself, with this graduate certificate in geographic information systems (GIS). I plan to complete this certificate in August and then search for a professional position abroad.
