A walk in the park

I finally went for a walk in the park, behind my place. I didn't walk very long, or very far, and I stumbled across this. That's some pretty impressive nature, within walking distance:

Next time I go for a walk, I'm bringing my camera. The above picture was taken with my camera phone.

I finally received a letter from the college

I finally received a letter from the college about my deferral:

Re: Respiratory Therapy Program, September 2008

Dear [Respiratory Therapy Student]

As previously agreed, your admission to the Respiratory Therapy Program has been deferred to the September 2008 start date. I have enclosed a copy of the signed agreement outlining the conditions of this deferral.

Please note that you are required to contact the College by February 1, 2008 to confirm your intention to start in September 2008.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at...

I waited 3 months for that letter. 3 Months!

Settled in

I haven't had the urge to post for quite a while. I've been running around doing all of those things that you do when you move into a new place.

I've been working in the big city for 3 days out of the week and commuting from my new home on those 3 days. My original plans to stay in my big city apartment up until the end of this month didn't work out. After moving into my condo I grew to detest my old apartment and couldn't bring myself to actually live there any longer.

I have to pick up a tool box and some paintings from my old apartment and then I will be completely moved out. I really am starting to hate that place. I can't believe that I lived there so long. I still have to clean the apartment before the end of the month. I might do the cleaning tomorrow, or I might leave it until Thursday or Friday of next week.
I can't believe how quiet my new place is. My old apartment was facing a major street in the big city and I was quite used to the traffic on that street, including all of thos Police, Fire and Ambulance sirens. In my new place, I'm facing a bunch of trees that has a very slightly used side road behind it. Behind the side road is a bunch of park land, that I haven't explored yet.

This is a picture of my desk and all of the trees that I can see from my living room window:
