T Dot Denizen

1 March 2012

So, I officially moved to The Big City last weekend. Again.
Third time is the charm, right?

The other two tales of my attempt to move to Toronto are wrought with failure and sadness.

In the summer of 2001 I moved to into a Bedroom/Bachelor (with Washroom) Parkdale for 1 month, bad idea since I was unemployed at the time. In the fall I tried again, near St. Clair/Dufferin in a rental Bedroom, got laid off and promptly moved back to Oakville with my mother. Not proud moments.

Here I am, 11 years later, fully employed and living with My Boyfriend in Yorkville.

I’m actually quite underwhelmed. Having spent 2-3 days a week in this apartment, in this neighborhood, in this city over the course of the last 1.7 years, I’m acclimatized. However, there are certainly a few wonderful perks that I’ve already enjoyed.

1) Eddie’s bed is officially The World’s Most Comfortable Bed. Officially.
2) I am less than 2 full city blocks from my B(Non-Ex-Wife)FF, Ahli.
3) I bought a TTC Metropass today for the first time, and am giddy at the theoretical Unlimited Subway/Streetcar Rides I shall take.
4) Food. Everywhere. I haven’t bought groceries yet, but need to go out of my way to do so since otherwise it’ll be a problematic situation. I simply cannot eat burgers and pizza all of the time simply because it’s available, everywhere.
5) Booze. Everywhere. Seriously, you’re always within a 10 minute walk to a Liquor or Beer store – it’s amazing. No more waiting 4hrs for Dial-a-Bottle.

Although it’s not all fun & games.

My commute to work right now is over 3hrs a day, although I’m hoping to slightly adjust my schedule to get it around 2.5hrs *fingers crossed*

Not living with Angelina is sad. In theory. We never really spent all that much time in the apartment at the same time anyways, but having her stuff around me felt like having her around me, and now that’s gone. Luckily we’ve got a weekly standing date, Changelina Thursdays – the first couple months will be spent getting her caught up on Downton Abbey – it’s going to be super-great.

So that’s what’s new with my living situation.

In other news, I have recently realized I love Dubstep and Dance Remixes. So, there’s that.
