This was a fun but busy week. :) In the past two weeks I’ve worked more overtime than I have all year. But, it’s been great, because I’m bringing in more money from my full-time job, and have secured almost $6,000 in freelance income for the next couple months.

I had a hot pot date on Monday with good friends from my very first job here in Vancouver. It’s a monthly date we all try hard to keep. :) Tuesday I met up with a friend for dinner, Wednesday I hung out with a few field hockey teammates, and Saturday I spent some time in Chinatown, then finally was able to check out the Herzog & de Meuron exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery. If you haven’t already checked it out, I’d definitely recommend it. The new Art Gallery is going to be pretty amazing for Vancouver, so it’s was interesting to learn about the architects who are designing it.

Field hockey practices have also started up (with games starting next week!), so my weeks are going to get even busier, but in a good way. I’ve missed the team, and I’m excited to shake the rust out of my stick and get the season started.
