Home for the holidays

  • 22nd Dec, 2005 at 12:53 PM

I'm leaving for Toronto today!

The office is mostly empty, even now, as most people have gone on vacation or haven't come in yet. It's very serene and peaceful in here, which is something pretty rare but actually quite nice.

My backpack full of clothes is packed and sitting behind me, next to an empty cardboard box. I'll be taking the train down to Toronto at 17:00, whereupon I'll maybe read a paper and sit back listening to music off of my laptop.

I don't expect I'll be able to get Internet this time either.

When I get to Union station, I'll take the subway home. I always like walking back home from the subway station because it's rather bittersweet. The streets are the same as when I went to high school there, but old buildings are torn down and new buildings put up each time I return.

Change is good, but I've always been a little wistful about the past.

I don't have any concrete plans for the holidays, so I figure I'll sit back and do some reading and some hacking. There's likely to be some baking and cooking and eating, which will be nice I should think.

Oh! I am going to show up to Head Office, which I haven't ever seen. It'll be nice to meet up with some people that I only really know over e-mail. And maybe I'll be able to push out another release of WvStreams while I'm there? Who knows?
