Happy New Year! Kicking off 2011 with glorious sunshine filled days here in Vancouver has been amazing to counteract the soggy winter blues that were beginning to creep in with all of the holiday rain. The mere hint of spring (people were jogging the seawall and even playing tennis while we set out for a long afternoon walk today-- eat your heart out Toronto!) brings thoughts of renewal as the new academic term is set to begin. Enjoy the last of the holidays and check out some of my Twitterverse favourites from the past week.
