keeping this blog steadily updated shouldn't be a difficult task. i mean, some dude's got their mojo
is busy with a banging career. busy banging pretty girls all over SoCal
(or where ever his adventures take him) and still churning out posts like nobody's
i think about blogging often but never get around to it. i have plenty of excuses but that's all they are really, excuses. which is a shame, because some days i think i have the most insightful things to say but no one say it to or write it down anywhere. then i think about blogging it.
on and off, i have kept this blog going more than most i ever did. stories, photo projects have been started but not finished. only thing i've
successfully finished it relationship.
but enough blogging about blogging. let's just get down to some heavy shit.
since we last parted; i found employment and therefore, the recession ended with it. ironically, the same friends around me that groaned about their plethora of education and no employment to show for it, jobs sprung up for them too. we collectively declared the recession is over and don't need to wait for the economists to declare it.
now everyone has all the electronic gadgets, fancy clothes, and going through money like air. i stilll
stick to my storebrand
items at grocery to save the quarter or two on pasta sauce. just how i roll.
my job took me 500 km away from home to ottawa
working for the federal government doing high level stuff with classified docs. so can't really talk about my job per se
. it's a contract for now which is good in the sense that everything remains up in the air in terms of whether i want to remain here.
living in ottawa
isn't all it's cracked out to be. for a nation's capital it's a rather dull city but i suppose other heavily bureaucratic cities share a similar culture to them. people coming from toronto
seem to share impressions of the city and long for a chance to take their job home. which is my sentiment; i love my job but somehow wish 'working from home' meant it can be 500 KM away from the centre of the universe. i've
meant a person who commutes from montreal
who sort of understands what i'm
i suppose a lot has to do with the fact i haven't really met anyone here. days mainly consist of getting back from work and waiting for the next one. i hang out with fellow queen's folks here and there; grab a bite or bevvy but the friends i have back home i miss terribly. being back this past long weekend made me think how much i really do miss toronto
that i didn't miss the same way when i lived in kingston
. i guess kingston
also seemed temporal so it was a matter of just getting through it; boxing my stuff and moving on. but ottawa
could potentially end up being long-term. having an apartment with newly purchased furniture just makes everything more homely than anything i have gotten myself before outside my parents house. usually it was with housemates and landlords providing all the goods.
like the 'living in kingston
' project that became a complete bust we'll see how i manage with the 'life in ottawa
' reincarnation. i suppose that's going to have to begin with finding some interesting things to do around here. we'll go all whitney like when she left O.C for new york city.
i hear there's trivia on tuesday nights? let the good times roll!
