Day 60: Edmonton

After 2 enjoyable months I have finally returned to Edmonton.  Apparently it had just started to snow the weekend I arrived.  I guess I just missed the Edmonton fall only to be greeted by winter.  But that is ok.

I have moved into a condo with a church friend of mine and one of his friends and I am liking it here more and more each day.  I have a nice bedroom with a good layout and lots of storage space.  There is a cool spiral staircase running down the center of our unit with three floors in total.  The people I live with are great and I think I will have fun living here.  I was a bit concerned about the transit because it is further from downtown, but I found that I live near a major bus terminal so it is not a big deal.  I would show you pictures of the place but my camera is currently being fixed/replaced.

On Wednesday I attended my first Calvary Baptist bible study in 2 months and it was good to be back.  It was great to see my friends after such a long time away. 

I start working at Karma this weekend but i do not know how long that will last.  I really want to start making some money and saving up once again.  I am 95% sure that Karma will not be able to pay me enough so I will probably start looking for more/other work.

And now for that thing I mentioned about November that I was saving for this post…

I am growing a moustache.

I am growing a moustache as part of the Movember campaign to raise awareness about prostate cancer and to raise funds for Prostate Cancer Canada.  Movember was started in Australia in 2004 and has since been carried out in other parts of the world.  In 2009 there were 255,755 participants and over 1 million donors.  Last year Canada raised $7.8 million For Prostate Cancer Canada.  I am growing a moustache because I like supporting others and think this is a fun thing to do; also I know I can grow a respectable moustache in 30 days. 

If you would like to know more about Movember check out thier website here.  If you would like to make a donation to Prostate Cancer Canada and support my moustache growing you may do so here (Just search for ‘Ken Timmermans’ under Individual).  Tell you friends about it too!
