Forest on Fire

Forget to say that the town of Kelowna and area close to Albertan border was on fire for a couple of days. As a result, Calgary's sky was hazy and people were asked not to do physical outdoor activities, like biking.

No Writing For A Long Time

I haven't written here for almost 3 weeks. Too busy. We work 6 days a week like a horse! Time for nothing. But several interesting (May be not just interesting) things has happened. I tell you one by one:

1- I failed APEGGA exam.! This one is not interesting at all. I could pass it but didn't study enough and happened what shouldn't have happened. I have to write it again. I'm planning for April.
2- I met Mr. Taheri in a gym. I called him and made the appointment. His Mom is a very old friend of my aunt. He has been living in Canada for almost 15 years, I guess. Have a Ph. D. in Material Science as far as I know and used to teach in a university in Saskatchewan, now running a bakery! he must have been kicked out from there!
3- An East Indian (Hindu) sweet girl called Renay, originally from Fiji now living in Edmonton, sent me a message and asked for friendship. I replied back, although I was one who had to pay for the message. After 3 weeks I called her. She assumed that I'm East Indian too!!! I didn't know that I look like Indians! and also sound like Indians! She's just 23, with a very nice and smooth voice. I'm supposed to call her on Mon. Aug.25 and c if she's ready to meet me there in Edmonton. She said she would be happy to see me and go to Royal Tyrrell. But I kind of doubt that. Especially after she realized that I'm not Indian. She seriously thinks of marriage. I don't think if I call her. Indians just hang out with Indians. You know what they say: Birds of a feather flock together. I, myself don't believe this!
4- This one is really sad: Andrew, my Canadian friend, originally from New Foundland and his wife, Jan, from the west (Victoria, I guess) are goin' to get separated.
