So I just got back from Belleville. Do I ever dislike that city and its mindset… Although at least I got to bump into Ryan and Corrie and the baby so that was nice. I got the registration stickers I needed, and ordered two custom plates. I picked up 1X4X9 for my trike (BME was already taken, and BMEZINE was too long for a small motorcycle plate), and I picked up PROGRAMR for my new and still unbuilt mega-truck (pictured below).

When I got back Rob and Rachel were out, so I drove the ATV to the end of Rob's farm to check it out, and then when I got back I drove my truck truck down his road a ways — Lost Channel, a little creek full of rocks is really pretty. I'll try and take a picture soon but I don't have a camera hooked up.

I'm going through waves of both euphoria and deep depression since getting here. I think it's because I'm starting to come to the same realization that my parents came to when they did exactly what I'm doing (giving up their careers in the city — at that point my father was the guy responsible for setting up medicare in BC, and my mother was the host of the business show Venture — to move their family to what they saw as a better environment)… That you can't have both.

Hence my new quote — “All the interesting streets are one-way.”

So maybe I have to decide whether I want to be a country person or whether I want to be a tech person (which includes doing IAM and BME). Both make me very happy. Giving up either clearly upsets me greatly… Maybe I should make one of those lengthy “pro/con” lists…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
