up to date update

It feels really weird to be September and not going to class. It feels weird walking around campus and feeling like I don't belong there. It hasn't hit me yet the idea that I am graduating from university. Now that I am out, I wanna go back again. Go to first days of class and learn your classmates names and read through the course outline and then leave early. Or the days where I did frosh week and had tons of fun and meeting all sorts of people.

Time flies. It was only 4 years ago I was starting a whole chapter of my life. But at least I know where I was heading and what I got myself into. Right now, the future is uncertain, which I hate because I like to plan things out and have a plan.

So far apartment hunting has been miserable. I am so picky it has been so hard for me. So apartments either:
a) don't include all utilities
b) look messy and dirty, maybe smell funky
c) not close to TTC at all
d) have weird landlords
e) don't come furnished

But I mean, if I am going to invest lots of money in an apartment it better be a great one, right? Especially if I'm goin to live there for a year.

My post-graduate working permit is going to arrive soon, that means I can start searching for jobs now. What kind of job? Something do to with advertising, graphic design, travel agency, customer service, theatre, social media, marketing, tourism, or something that I qualify for. I might need to read over my job strategies notes I have written over the summer from taking career advising during the summer. I also need to polish some resume and cover letters.

The house I'm living in right now is really nice. My housemates are raelly nice. One of the girls is super nice, always talking to me, and is a good friend. One of the guys is really really helpful and helps to keep the house clean. Very smart, helping us get the internet. Another girl is super nice too although she is almost never home. But whenever she is she is talktive and always happy. The other guy and the other girl are meh. Not really interested in them, although the guy had his mind blown when I told him I was from Costa Rica. Sometimes I wish I could stay longer at this house. Makes me feel comfortable and it's really nice to have people to talk to occasionally.

Adulthood sucks, but I need to keep ma cool!


  1. What's your budget and what location are you looking?
    Have you been taking the TTC to apartment hunting?

  2. my budget is $500 - $750 for furnished
    or $500 - $700 for unfurnished
    looking the area of east side of toronto
    close to subway station, or at least very close to bus stop.
    i took the ttc to go apartment searching at the beginning, but lately my bf has been driving me around.

  3. Hmm...that's pretty hard if you want something least up to your standard. Why don't you find a place that's convenient and then decorate to your standard?
    How east are you looking for? Scarborough? Or probably Sheppard? near Fairview mall? My suggestion to you is that you should at least find a location that's close to where you're going to work...

    So sweet of your boyfriend!
