The Week of Papers


Well, I guess it can't be said any better. I had been hoping to make a post all week, but life got in the way, sadly. There has been a flurry of activity around this area, which I suppose has a good deal to do with the visit of the Prime Minister of Canada, Paul Martin. He flew out to Edmonton this last Thursday to attend the largest RCMP memorial in Canadian history. Four RCMP officers were killed about 45 minutes away northwest of here in a reposession gone horribly awry. It was the largest death toll for peace officers in Canadian history. The memorial was literally held right across the street from where I live, and the PM himself came to Lister for a few hours to a banquet I was not invited to. They actually painted the handrails for him, which wouldn't be such a big deal, but we live here and they never do it for us. In any case, this place was quite busy for a while, and some what of a distraction that I could have done without. I have been working all week now on a series of papers which must be turned in on Monday. The term paper for bioethics was originally due on Friday, but since I was ill for a few days, I successfully requested an extension. I also must turn in a composition for French, and a lab report for microbiology. So far my progress on these projects has been lackluster, but I am making decent progress tonight. I hope that tomorrow is productive.
