My attempt at a photo of today's solar eclipse ... a pretty cool thing to see although this pic doesn't do it any justice.

It's hard to believe my last post was on the 10th ... it seems as though there's been distraction in my life.

Amid the distraction, I have been able to find much time to 享受一下 ...

享受 is certainly the only way to go ...

Week one of this crazy summer schedule is down with seven more to go. How does that math work out, you ask? Two days ago, I learned that the program is eight weeks not seven. So ... while my co-workers are vacationing, I'll be up earlier than I'd like to be for another week of work.

Work hard, play hard. I am much better suited by the latter.

I've not had much time to think about leaving a post these days. I have been getting home just before ten only to find that I can hardly keep my eyes open. I give in to sleep as 7am comes early. After an eight to nine hour rest, one shouldn't wake feeling absolutely wiped out ... it's not right.

I'm half tempted to cancel my Chinese class tonight but I am only studying 1.5 hours a week which means progress is slow. I've not had much time to prep for my class and I feel a bit bad for that. My teacher is aware of my busy schedule, so hopefully he'll put up with me during the summer!

Martin Streek, a long time DJ from CFNY took his own life this week. It takes me back to the days of Fever and Kingdom. I spent a lot of time between those two places in my youth. He was certainly someone I looked up to way back then and I am saddened by his death. RIP.
