I'm Philip (or phil, philbert, phillium, whatever). I grew up in Nepean, Ontario and am currently studying Environmental Engineering at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I'm 21 years old and have lately been going through pretty interesting times with my life. I wish I could have started this diary sooner because I moved to Halifax 2 months before I created it and I've already gone on more memorable adventures than I can count! I'd like to log them all in here someday. A lot of times I let such beautiful things pass through my memory without writing them down. But, I guess if you spend all your time typing then life tends to pass on by.

My journal entries may not follow any general theme, as moods do change repeatedly. For the last little while I've kept some co-respondence logged for the sake of keeping in-touch with my future as well as my friends.

If I had to guess I'd say that I'm a fairly jovial, so hopefully none of that depressing gunk surfaces too often. More and more people tend to refer to me as the "guy who always smiles", "happy photon guy", or "the guy who's happy with everything". Well, anyways, if anybody reads this then that would be pretty cool, and I hope they find my life as interesting as I do. And if not, then that's cool too.

    Wild The coyotes were loud last night. Insane and wild. Echoing off every wall of this world. Shattering all silence like rocks hitting thin ice. Piercing through nature like an arrow shot through still water. Haunting enough to make the ravens roosting in my treeline scatter like mice. The stran...
