Congratulations, Housemate!

So yeah, my housemate recently added yet another degree to his “vanity wall”. He got his Master’s in science! w00t! He’s been working on his PhD for the last year or so so I think he actually finished his degree some time ago but got the piece of paper at a ceremony sometime in the last few weeks.

I didn’t go to the ceremony.

Firstly, the ceremony was in the morning and I am not the biggest fan of mornings. Secondly, too many parents attend these things and I feel incredibly out of place in front of other peoples’ parents.

He got his Master’s degree in some kind of science. I flipped through his thesis and it’s all mumbo-jumbo to me.  I wanted to paste some of it in this blog entry but Housemate forbade me. His reason? “It’s not in the library yet.”

I am a resident of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada who has blogged here for 20 years. I like to share my thoughts and feelings on my own online space. From 1998 until 2017 I worked as a journalist and I hope to use this website as an archive for all of my stories.


  1. Aww, cute 🙂 Does the University of Vancouver have the appropriate accomodations for Khan?
