However, I am still burning the candles at both ends and my schdual is overbooked.

My Chinese class is a killer, but hay at least I have not dropped out. God help me learn the numbers and measure words… ie, er, san,…
Spent some time with Jean, my good firend and language exchange partner. She drove me around Taipei on the back off her scooter and for the moment I enjoyed it.. We went out for Japanese and had a great time. Went shopping last weekend and got some cool threads from the night market. Its getting hotter, (the temperature average is now low of 28, high of 36), so I need new skirts.
Had a good talk on the phone with Quinn. A conversation that I would like to elaborate on later. We both come from small town B.C. and left home at 18 and never looked back. We had a good talk about family, friendship, career, and fulfillment. What I like about Quinn is that he lives life on his own terms and is still kicking it with style, wit, charm, and grace.
Felt sick over the weekend. My nose went through more than two boxes of Kleenexes and is now quite sore. At the moment I’m running off caffeine and bubble tea. Will probably have a salad for dinner and then move onto the paperwork that awaits me. Have a photoshoot for Discover Taipei tomorrow so new photos should be up by Friday.
Ana is a cool woman. In this photo shoot she was confident, in control of her image, and very sensual. I like that in people. It is good to know what you want and go after it. Moreover, I appreciate people who also like to look good while getting the job done.
For some reason I have a thing with reflections and mirrors. Perhaps it is because there is always a difference between perception and self. No matter how we see ourselves there is always another outer layer or reflection that we cannot see.

Pacers from the New York Flyers running club 20.9 miles 8’37” pace/mile time This was a very meaningful race that I’d trained hard for.

This was a special race as it took place in my hometown of Vancouver, BC. I had wanted to run a Vancouver race for a while and it was an absolute pleasure to run through UBC, West Van, and Stanley Park for 13.10 miles. The course began at UBC’s Thunderbird Arena and ran along SW […]
It was a great experience to run my first marathon at home in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois on April 26th. I decided to run with the 3:50 pace group and met a lot of interesting people on the course. Our pacer Steve had run 13 marathons in one year and I connected with others who traveled across […]
