That’s what the weatherman said this morning on the radio. That lovely (or terrible) hot weather _everyone_ else is enjoying is making it’s way to Vancouver and today will be a lovely 26°C. But no playing hooky for me today — there is a ton of work to do.
Congrats to [Betzig of Stitchcounter](http://www.stitchcounter.blogspot.com/) who was the randomly-drawn winner for the contest! _And thanks to everybody for the lovely birthday wishes!!_
It’s funny, a few years ago, I was trying to decide whether or not I should go to art school, full-time (after having already completed a Bachelors at UBC — because I’m crazy about school?!?). In the end, I decided against it since I would have graduated at 29 and I really, genuinely felt that by 29 I shouldn’t be “starting” my life… that I should be “complete” with a proper career, proper husband, proper family and lifestyle, _blah blah blah_.
