Just got back from dinner. Don’t bother going to Queen’s Mum ever.Â Dinner with 20 philosophers was…interesting. But everytime I spend social time with this group (i.e. the non-Singaporean community of my Toronto existence), I am struck by how alien I feel despite the fact that there is much I can talk about with them. It seems the longer I stay in Toronto, the more I feel a closer connection with the Singaporean community. I don’t know why. I feel very different about this from when I first came over in 1998.
Found out from my supervisor (to my surprise) that OISE/UT’s Dean had attended my presentation (I didn’t recognize her). Fortunately, she had positive things to say about my presentation. It’s quite a relief actually…I didn’t actually feel very prepared or certain when answering questions that day. I’m really glad I didn’t know the Dean was there. Ah well.
I don’t know when it happened, but I think I pulled something or slightly sprained my left ankle yesterday. Been limping more as the day wore on. :|
