I’m alive!

Nathaniel Christopher

Another glaring hole in my blog… eep! My “daily” entries have evolved into a monthly routine. What does that say about my commitment to the ten people who read this thing? It’s true, I haven’t updated this thing for a while.I’ve been very busy with journalism school. For those of you who don’t know… yes, I got in! I’m now in the post-graduate certificate journalism program at Langara. Apparently it’s the best journalism school west of Carleton but one of my teachers, Rob Dykstra (who also chairs the department) questions that . “Why only west of Carleton?” he asks.

Speaking my mind in class!

I quite like my teachers… I haven’t gotten into too many fights with them. The students are all… reading this page. They are nice. There are two or three boys who I think are very cute, but they’ll never know! In our class of twenty-two there are only three queer students, which I guess is a pretty good number. Today I went shopping at The Bay with the solitary lesbian, Sarah, who helped me pick out a wonderful pink mauve Jones New York dress shirt which was on sale for $25 from $75. She managed to find a great pink striped tie that only cost $9.

I’ve been sick for the last week with a flu… Suffice to say Burnaby city plumbers have been working overtime in my neighbourhood. There’s been a lot of action in the toilet department. This week I’m focusing on hydration.

It was annoying to miss four days of school but I’m sure I’ll make up for it in the coming days. In other news at school I’m now a member of Langara College’s Board of Governors! I wrote about that in my “News” section.

For those of you who’ve waited so long for an update and still come back here I’ve done something a little special! I drew up the first Sensei Wong comic strip in over two years! I scribbled it together in class the other day… it took about ten minutes but hey, there you go! Enjoy!

I am a resident of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, who has been blogging here for nearly 25 years. I enjoy sharing my thoughts and feelings on my own online platform. From 1998 until 2017, I worked as a journalist, and I have posted most of my articles in the 'News' section of this website.
