I had a big list of things to do today. To my great surprise, I nearly got all of them done.
The one thing I wished I had done today was to go get some groceries. I need to go to Safeway bad. I cleaned out my fridge before I left for my cruise, so I have nothing to eat at home. I did make a quick stop in the Village produce store, so I have a few apples and strawberries though. It doesn’t replace a full-on Safeway trip unfortunately.
I paid to use the bus today as well. After eight months of U-Pass, man did that ever feel wrong. There must be some way of getting a free bus pass… SFU students… I’m looking in your direction…
I also filed my tax return today. I’m getting a refund. I wish I could use the money to buy frivolous consumer goods, but every cent of it will go towards tuition. It’s just the grown-up thing to do.
I can now (legally) drive again. I got my driver’s license renewed when I was back home with my parents. It was the first time I’ve ever had it renewed in a shopping mall. Here’s a tip if you’re renewing your license: go to the ICBC Express Driver Services Centres. These places don’t offer written exams nor road tests. Because of that, the line-ups are a tiny fraction of the full service centres.
Before I end this post, I’d like to mention that I’m drafting a post on my cruise as we speak. You’ll find out soon enough what I thought about my vacation.
