Dave’s Diary: University, or Masquerade Ball?

Series

We’ve been talking about it at work in regards to job interviews, but it’s clear that the construct applies to a lot more than just that.  But it’s a slippery thing to try to define.  When applied to people, the best we can really do is provide a list of near-synonyms: genuine, real, veritable.  None of which are all that helpful.

Christine

We took the metro to North Kolkata to discover a part of the city we have not visited yet. Without a planned route, we walked south in the diction of home. Approximately every 5 blocks we would find a pandal to vist. One such pandal blew all of us away.

Dave’s Diary: Don’t Throw A Fit!

Series

How many times and how many ways have you heard the word “fit” thrown around? I don’t know if a three letter word has ever had such wide ranging implications.  Grammatically speaking, it’s an adjective, a verb, and a noun.  Generally speaking, though, I’m pretty confident we can think of “fit” as referring to the compatibility of one thing with another.

Peeriodicals

Peeriodical: Transitions – A Starting Point

Professional Development

Transitions! Sleeping to waking, travelling from home to work and back again and switching from task to task are some of the more common every day transitions that people experience.  Most aren’t life-changing and take place on a regular basis, so we tend not to think about them when they occur.

Dave’s Diary: Optimism’s Underworld – Unrealistic Expectations

Dave's Diary

I’m going to share a secret with you, internet: I’m a big Kate Beckinsale fan, and have been since the first Underworld movie came out in 2003.  So, when I found out that the 4th Underworld movie - New Dawn – was being filmed at SFU , and that Kate was in a starring role, I got pretty excited (as many of my coworkers can confirm).
