West-End Living

   13 October 2004, evening time

I’ve done the unthinkable, and moved to the West-end. I’ve lived in Scarborough ever since I moved to Canada. Scarborough is the East end of Toronto, and a very nice place to live. East Side!!

It is strange being out of the suburbs. I walked down to the Bloor West Village to get groceries today and was surrounded by people. There are joggers everywhere here. The streets were reasonably busy. Unlike Scarborough, I stick out like a sore thumb, and definitely feel like a minority again. Scarborough has to be the most diverse part of Toronto. One day I hope the rest of the city catches up.

My apartment is barren, and would be thoroughly boring if not for the hot spot somewhere in this building. I thank you who has given me internet access. I am slowly making a list of things to buy. If people can recommend furniture stores in the city, and perhaps tips on furnishing a studio, you know where to comment.

  1. You think you’re East-side? You don’t even know about East. Well, at least you don’t have to drive to get anywhere now.

  2. You’ll always be a ghetto East-side boy to me.
    Congrats on your new place!

  3. its the end of an era…

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
