Having lived in Vancouver for over 12 years… I feel like the city has ran out of things to offer me. So I decided to pick up and move to Toronto this Spring. New job, new city, new apartment and a new lease in life is just what the doctor ordered to relight that fire for life!
It will also be great because I will be able to cover the east coast activities for Homorazzi and fill you guys in with not just what’s happening with me but also what’s happening around town.
Here is a compilation of questions I’ve been asked in order of what was usually asked first:
1. What are you going to do with your place here? Are you gonna sell? (Umm is that really important? Is it even your business? LOL)
No, I am not selling my place here. I am having it rented out by a Property Management company. The last thing I really wanna worry about is my place here. I have so many other things to plan before I go. So having them manage it will be a load off my chest.
2. Are you buying a place in Toronto?
No, I will rent for the first year or so and decide then if I wanna buy a new place there.
3. What about your dog?
Of course I am taking him with me. There is no chance in hell I am leaving my baby. I would miss him too much.
4. Why are you moving?
I really just need a change of pace. Vancouver is beautiful but a tad bit too slow. I feel like I’m living in a resort town.
5. Do you have a job in Toronto?
Yes, I will be working for a design agency.
6. What area do you want to live in Toronto?
I’m looking in the Yonge & Bloor area closer to Yorkville so I have the option to walk to work.
I will keep you guys updated as I get settled into my new city. I’m so excited and can’t wait for the change. New chapter!
