This week has been unlike any other I’ve had in a while. For starters, did you know I was in Toronto? Just for three days/nights, but I had to keep it a secret! ING DIRECT Canada flew myself and a handful of other Orange Scarf Ambassadors out, including Bridget and Jordann, for a big event at which they revealed their new name: Tangerine. I’ll write a recap post about the trip next week, but for now I will say it was a really exciting event to be a part of and I’m so grateful to have been invited. (And yes, you’re looking at a pic of us with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, taken shortly after they performed Thrift Shop. So fun!)
Last night, I flew home to Victoria where I will now be housesitting until the 23rd. After my panic attack a few weeks ago, I’ll admit I was feeling anxious about spending so much time away from my new apartment, new routine, etc. But being in Victoria means I get to spend my downtime with friends and family, and I cannot complain about that.
One thing I’m blown away by right now is the fact that we’re already 8 days into November. The end of 2013 is in sight, and there’s still so much I need/want to do! Going into this weekend, I’ll be thinking about how to prioritize my goals and what steps I need to take to accomplish each of them. Finishing up that writing project is at the top of the list…
The low of my week was waiting at the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal for 5 hours on Saturday, because two ferries were cancelled due to high winds. What a waste of a day.
The high of my week was finally getting to meet and hang out with Bridget.
An article I loved was The Prophet. I won’t give my opinion, but I encourage you to read it.
The best money I spent was approx. $20 on lattes with extra shots of espresso. Jet lag is the worst.
My plans this weekend include having dinner with a couple girlfriends tonight, visiting with friends both days and getting my haircut on Sunday.
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
