I liked the trip down memory lane last week so much that I dug through some other old documents from my university days in hopes of finding some more Throwback Thursday (#TBT) gems. I found my old F!rosh Handbook from the fall of 2006 (At UofT Engineering, Freshmen Orientation was referred to as F!rosh Week, and the exclamation mark came early because it was such an exciting event). This book was produced for engineering students that were entering first year at the University of Toronto in the fall of 2006. The editor of this publication, Ariel Feldman did a really good job with the[…continue reading]

I received a notification on Tuesday that a photo had been added of me to an alumni website. The photo is a scan of a page from a 2006 university yearbook. It’s funny that I have absolutely no recollection of writing this incredibly nerdy blurb, and yet I can wholeheartedly believe that I wrote it. During the 2005-2006 academic year, I had a position in the engineering student government as “Sponsorship Director.” The job was to try to find free money for events and publications.

Last week’s inaugural Throwback Thursday was such a bit hit, I’m going to try to make it a regular occurrence. It will be a mix of Running posts that reminisce about previous races and such, mixed in with posts from my pre-running life. This week’s Throwback isn’t from that far back at all. These photos are from December 15, 2013. These photos were originally posted to Facebook by my running friend Clive. He decided to stay safe and warm in his condo instead of running that Sunday morning. But, he did take these great photos! It would have been about -13ºC at the time with[…continue reading]

Throwback Thursday: AER201 Robot

I’ve started seeing some awesome throwback Thursday posts from some Facebook friends, particularly Nicole and Patty. So, I thought I’d join in the party.   I found these pictures and video on an old laptop. It was from about 10 years ago when I was still in university. We had a group project to build an autonomous robot. We were barely trained at the time. I liken the project to being thrown in the deep end of a pool and expected walk on water. Our particular robot had to take a bunch of coloured ping ping balls, sort them by colour, then place[…continue reading]
