Looks like a good summer

Freelancing has its advantages, but its unpredictability can be draining. Fortunately, I seem to have secured some very predictable contracts for this summer:

  • The Canadian Paediatric Society has hired me to produce a daily newsletter for its annual meeting, to be held here in Vancouver in mid-June.
  • Sierra Wireless, for whom I wrote some documentation earlier this year, intends to have me work at their facility in Richmond, B.C. three days a week from late June to mid-September.

These contracts are particularly gratifying because my wife, a math teacher, does not work in the summer, so having consistent income during those months is helpful.

On top of that, today is the most glorious day of the year so far in Vancouver, with predicted high temperatures of 27° C and sunshine. And it's my dad's birthday too. He's 62 today.
