in order to move to Canada, i had to go college - something that I had never intended to do.  and in order to work here, i had to become a full-time student...

so, I enrolled in the Arts & Science Studies program at Camosun College, which enabled me to create a flexible, interdisciplinary curriculum. that being said, my main focus became anthropology - one of the few specialized disciplines that i've considered pursuing as a career.

in any case, i ended up taking a lot of really wonderful courses with some amazing professors (as well as a few of the opposite, to be honest...) and graduated with credentials which enabled me to get a work permit and to continue living here.
