Last first day and a side of ham

All these lasts…

As seasons change, the lasts become more prominent. I walk around, feeling the poignancy of everything.

Today was my first day of the new school year. I went to orientation for first year high school students at one of my schools. It was a beautiful day, and I had a great time meeting the new students. Many of them seemed excited to speak English. It was a great day.

Then, I had to do a brief self introduction with my division at the board of education. We were greeting a room of vice-principals. I was so nervous.

After school and work, I had to take some pictures for possible future jobs. It’s important to look your best in photos.


Needless to say, the actual pictures did not end up looking like this. That’s probably a good thing.

In other news, I saw this at the supermarket today. I like all of these things, I just don’t think that I want to eat them together.


It’s potato salad on a cheese hamburger. Who knows, maybe it is actually good!
