to change: *procrastination*, my lack of self esteem, procrastinating due to my lack of self-esteem, sometimes letting myself care too much about materialism and not what really matters, my temper, my vanity (which this website isn't really helping, teehee), my use of the word "ass" *shake head*, being "too dramatic" (but then, I also like that I'm dramatic, better than being dull :)), perfectionistic tendencies, lazy tendencies (bad when mixed with procrastination)

Kinda stumbled across your site as I was adding mine to the Pacific NW blog list. Decided to comment as I am currently going to UBC in Vancouver for my MA. But also I lived in Calumet and Dollar Bay for two years when I was in the Coast Guard, and my wife attended MTU for her MSc. Small world.

Date line Pot Angeles. Just across the Straits of Juan de Feuqua.We're "next door" neighbors.

Ilike like it.
delighted I stumbled on it.

Yu've got great taste a GREAT sense of humor when relaxed viz. un-selfconscious.

only one bit of criticisim in the negative. I think, though I may be splitting some unfair hairs, that the circumlocution "cold ice-water" is probably redundant.
