I’ve really been enjoying my time here in TO. From the CN tower, to a Jays game (my first ball game ever), to an early-morning carbon monoxide scare (although the sexy firefighters made that worthwhile), to watching one of my newest friends hail a full-blown city bus as if it were a taxi cab (I attempted this myself the very next day — it seems to be a thing here), & an impromptu shadow puppet show… it’s really been quite the trip.
I’ve missed my BFF: I don’t know how many times I’ve laughed so hard I’ve almost peed myself, & I desperately don’t want this trip to end, but alas it is almost time for me to return to real life.
Much like last year, I’m not really feeling a pull home — rather I feel the pull to stay here. But, as much as my romantic side is screaming at me to drop everything & start my life in Toronto right now, my more practical side is winning out with its realistic assertions that I must finish my degree, save some more money (I’m going to have to lay off the shoe purchases for a while), & perhaps actually find a place to live first.
A quick visit is just going to have to suffice for now — quick visits are all I have to fix my Toronto addiction until I can actually get it together enough to move here, anyway.
So, I’m back to Edmonton on Tuesday, anxious to start school & continue biding my time until I can call this beautiful city home.
& now, some shameless photos from my trip (so far):
