It’s been a while since my last post. I came back from Detroit feeling sad that such a great time had ended, and feeling so alone going from living in a large, busy family house back to being by myself in my one bedroom apartment. On top of that my job at the design firm had ended and I was feeling overwhelmed with job hunting because I hadn’t done it since I graduated from Humber 5 years ago. I felt like I couldn’t see anyone or do anything because I was so worried about how I was going to make ends meet. I tried to bury myself in my schoolwork as much as I could, and I made a lot of great work that I’m really excited about (that post is coming soon). I was lonely and stressed about money pretty much from January to March.
But it didn’t last forever, I found a job at a store within walking distance of where I live which makes reclaimed wood furniture. It is totally awesome! Not only do I get to walk to work, but I love working for a small business owner because I actually feel like I am appreciated for the work that I do and that I am making a difference contributing to the success of the business. I feel so blessed! I love going to work every day, I never thought this was possible. Oh and did I mention that I don’t start till 11am? I told you, dream job.
Also, in March, I decided that the pressure of the high rent of my place was too much so I am moving! Just around the corner so I get to stay in my dream neighborhood. Lindsay, Marc and I will be sharing a three bedroom apartment and it’s beautiful, I am so excited to live with them. They really are my family here in Toronto.
So I thought I would post some pictures of the apartment before I start packing and it gets really messy. I love this place dearly and will miss it, but I am so excited for this new chapter.
I will post pics of the new place once we get all settled and organized. So excited!
I am going to try to post more often this summer. My brother posts weekly and I am so inspired by him and his stories. I want to be as consistent as he is. Of course this will all depend on how exciting my life is this summer, so maybe blogging will motivate me to do more exciting things!
Also, I updated my about me page and I added links for all of my social media outlets in the sidebar so you can see what I’m up to between blog posts.
Thanks for reading friends!
