After weeks like the one I just had, I hate that I always title these posts “TGIF”. I’m not thankful it’s Friday! I mean, it was a busy week, and it’s always nice to have a weekend off… but I’m not ready for my time in Toronto to be over! I feel like I only just got here, and somehow it’s already time to leave again. I guess it’s never a bad thing to say you enjoy spending time in various cities across the country, but sometimes I wish I could just pack everyone I love into a box and bring them back to Vancouver with me.
I did get everything I asked for and more, with this “Christmas in Toronto” trip. My first night here, Kurtis (coworker seen above) and I baked cookies and watched Christmas movies. We played Christmas music in the office and decorated our Christmas tree. I saw lights everywhere and beautiful window displays. I plan on doing a little last-minute shopping tomorrow, which will be insane but also fun. And I’ve also attended one of two Christmas parties.
Overall, I’ve made some great memories with my coworkers this week, caught up with a handful of friends and have been reminded of why I do love visiting Toronto. I can’t wait to see you all again in 2014, xo
The low of my week was suffering from some serious jet lag (I’m such a travel lightweight) and losing almost an entire night of sleep because of it. Multiple shots of espresso were consumed this week.
The high of my week was everything! Coffees and dinners with friends, seeing Roomie, hanging out with the team at work, going to meetings downtown… oh, and decorating our Christmas tree at the office!
A blog post I loved was A Letter to My Parents From My Tween Self by Maya Kuc Corbic. It brought up memories of feeling excited about opening my first bank account and building up a little bit of savings when I was a tween. Why didn’t the high of that last longer? haha
The best money I spent was $22.70 on a cab ride home from a Christmas party last night. My blistered feet can’t thank me enough.
My plans this weekend include going to the RateHub.ca Christmas party tonight, spending the day with friends in Toronto tomorrow then flying home to Vancouver on Sunday.
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
