Labels: About Vonjobi
I came to Vancouver along with an estimated 9,500 academics for the annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS). Four of us from the University of Toronto's Faculty of Information Studies presented papers at the annual conferences of the Canadian Association for Studies in Book Culture and the Canadian Communication Association.
I have since moved to my aunt's place in Surrey, and will be staying here until it's time to go to Seattle for SLA's annual conference. I will, as usual, visit libraries in Vancouver and try to connect with Filipino librarians. So if any of you know any Filipino librarians in Vancouver or Seattle—or perhaps you're attending the SLA conference—please leave a comment so I can get in touch with you.
I've already met a few people, but I don't think anyone will be as memorable as my aunt, whom I never got to know before in the way I have in the past few days. One of the corny-but-true things she shared with me is that her name (Fe) is at the end of liFE (get it?) and that liFe without the F is just a lie. After all, without all those important F-words (!)—like fun, friends and... never mind LOL—life wouldn't really be worth living.
