Stephenson House Online

Located at 63 Charles St. West, Toronto, Ontario – Stephenson House was Victoria College at the University of Toronto's true student co-operative housing residence reflecting the will of Dr. Stephenson… now this blog will serve as an archive of memories of its last year (2009-2010) and for those house members to stay in touch with each other. SIYB! SHF!

Em’s last day, Bob Dylan, pie, pasta, front lawn, people, friends, Leo got a job!

The 26th and 27th were Em’s last night and day. As such, it called for dancing, one last family dinner and drinking with friends, Leo, Mary and Laura. Making pasta, listening to music and watching a slideshow… 

Leo made this amazing apple pie, so crusty (except no ring) and full of apples! Mmm… 

Then Liam came back with more wine and Em, Liam and Karen talked and reminiscing away the night until 4am. 

During the day of April 27th, Karen and Em spent it sitting on the front lawn of Steview Ho, wrapped in Liam’s blanket and Jorge’s sweather eating pasta from last night, drinking Luci’s orange juice, listening to Bob Dylan  and talking about everything, the past, the present, the future… 

Simone and Maria dropped by and joined us. Then they left and we headed inside to watch an old movie and fell asleep till 5pm… 

Also as I write this, Leo I think just screamed that he got a job!! Yay!! He went to an interview yesterday and it was probably successful!! 

Karen’s rant: it sucks so much that we all said we’d do things together as a house, like science club, picnics, pie-baking competitions etc. but never did, always thinking that there would be enough time, we’d do it next week, next month etc. and yet our lives go so busy with so much shit (good shit?), that the end came so rapidly and next thing you know, everyone’s gone. Forever. And you regret what you didn’t do with them because that is what you will remember, not some meeting or assignment… and you only notice and think about people so much more when they are all gone.
