So this is sort of an obnoxious post, but it makes Pa and Ma proud, so let’s live with in. I won these two award thingies this year, which are each awesome in their respective ways.
1) Gordon Cressy award: Student leadership, blahblahlbah. Nothing like being in a room with 200 UofT try-hards to make you question humanity.
HOWEVER: The event had tons of free Diet Coke, and I stole a bunch of cans. And Wendy Newman, my former instructor nominated me, which was very touching and thoughtful and awesome.
Also, we had a delightful convo with Gordon Cressy in the coatroom and dude is seriously charming and funny and great. So I don’t mind have a giant plaque with his name on it next to my couch.
2) Student Jubilee Award: More student leadership! Only not also given to 200 other people. Also, accompanied by a cash prize, which I’m pretty sure I managed to spend ENTIRELY on cured ham during a recent trip to Spain. Thanks to the Faculty of Information Alumni Association, for funding the award!
