East Coast Adventures -- Week 1

This space is turning into a bit of a travel blog. I promise I do still have a job -- vacations just happen to be more interesting to write about.

Right now I'm halfway through a two-week family trip to eastern Canada. We're finishing up in the Maritimes and heading into Quebec tomorrow. Here's my journaling on what we've seen so far (and I apologize for the length!):

Conference Life: Toronto & San Diego

I spent half of September not at work, thanks to the Canadian and American radiation oncology conferences being back-to-back. It's been an invigorating and exhausting mix of learning, exploring, and socializing. And such fun. I'm really grateful to have gotten to attend both this year.
First up was CARO in Toronto. We stayed at the conference hotel, the beautiful Hilton right downtown.

Life This Week: Urban Gardening, Petting Zoo, & A River Valley Sunset

This week has been all pre-conference hustle gearing up for heading to Toronto on Tuesday for CARO. I'm looking forward to catching up with friends and staying right downtown (AGO visit?). Otherwise life has been good. We're enjoying some late summer weather, which will hopefully stick around despite the elms looking increasingly autumn-like. Here are a few things I've appreciated lately...

New Month, Same Goals

Happy September! Time to commit some goals to paper. They're not much different this month compared to previous ones; clearly these remain tough things for me.

Icefields Parkway & Calgary

My mom and I had a nice little road trip together this past weekend. We set out early on Saturday to the mountains. The weather was gorgeous; we really couldn't have asked for a nicer day.

Life This Week: John Walter Museum, Situation, & Cariwest

I noticed some yellow leaves on the elms in my neighbourhood this morning. Not impressed. It's only August. At least nature redeemed itself with the solar eclipse, which I've got to say was not exactly what I'd expected (only 70% here), but still very cool. The best thing really was how it brought everyone from nurses to patients to physicists out to the hospital parking lot to take a look. It was nice to share the experience (and viewing glasses -- only one person actually had them). Here are some other things I've appreciated lately:

West Coast Vibes

It's a quiet call evening, so I'm laying in bed writing a paper scrolling through Instagram. I just wanted to share my favourite west coast photographer, Tyler Forest-Hauser.

Life This Week: Froyo, Heritage Festival, & Reading

Summer's flying by! It's been a good mix of work and relaxation so far though; which is also the plan for the weeks to come. Clearly my pager is on the same page; it hasn't bothered me much at all this long weekend. Besides rounding in the mornings, I've been free to lie on the couch, walk around the mall, and hang out with friends -- the wonders of home call. Here are some things I've appreciated this week:

South Korea - Day 6 - Jeju Island

Still catching up on travel's our last day on Jeju Island!

This morning we picked up some triangular gimbap for a quick breakfast, then took two buses to the east side of Jeju Island to visit Seongsan Ilchulbong, also known as Sunrise Peak.

Life This Week: Freewill Shakespeare Festival & Village of India

This week just flew by, with the days filled by everything from getting my fridge fixed to baking to call. Here are some highlights:
