River - snaking through wetlands.  Everything looked awesome so we weren't going super fast but still did around 15 miles just yesterday.  I think it was also the birthplace of all mosquitos so I'm covered in bites.  It's nice feeling a pint or two lighter.

I went to a MLS Soccer (football) match yesterday with my Dad...Vancouver FC vs. DC United...it was awesome. Here's Vancouver's rambunctious support club (the Southsiders) marching to the stadium....they do this every game, it's an electric atmosphere!

I played Destiny on the new Xbox One and started my journey to saving the universe.

On Sunday I helped a friend brew up a batch of homebrew.

Nice.  I really want to try a batch.  Might start off with some hard apple cider first though.

Taking an accelerated financial accounting course.  Accounting pretty much all day everyday.  Its' contra-fun, a depreciation on my fun account.

Poor fella. But think of all of the time off of Purgatory.  :)

Hard apple cider sounds great right now. I'm glad it's just about time for Autumn to start. Oktoberfest season and all that.

You're just considering the NPV, think of the FV.

Hot apple cider with carmel is what I want.... .  Might have to see if I can find one of those somewhere.

Last night I went to Nightlife at the Cal Academy of Sciences. One night a week they have drinks and a DJ for the 21+ crowd and you can see the aquarium and other exhibits for less than the regular admission. They had an earthquake simulator which felt nothing like any earthquake I've experienced. The albino alligator was also moved here from the zoo at some point.

My friend's wedding was off-the-charts fun which is why I haven't bothered mentioning it here.

Spent two months in France.  Six weeks taking two courses while living with a host family, then two weeks in Lourdes as a volunteer.

Then went to Ireland for a couple days, then Canada for about ten days.
