For the past year and a half I had mentioned moving to Toronto and just never did. I am glad to say that if you are reading this, I am officially moved into the capital of our great province. I have left behind the dungeon of my mother’s basement and have decided to pursue a life worth living. To be fair, there is absolutely nothing wrong with living with your folks. I got to save money, spend time with my family, and help out around the house – all while working full time from home. Realistically, for many, this would have been a perfect scenario. But as an adult, it was about damn time. I was ready to have my own privacy and to not always have someone check in on me. Thank you for caring mother, but your son is a fully grown man and sometimes he needs to step out with the boys to talk about some manly things.
With all that being said, I am really looking forward for what’s to come. I finally feel like I can live the life that I have wanted to for years. I have always considered myself to be someone who thrives in busy and new settings. This opportunity to move in with my high school friend Johnny, just seemed like too good of a deal to pass up on. Johnny is a bit racist, and homophobic, and xenophobic – just all the phobics, but I will teach him to be better for the world (this is a joke). And if you’re one of the homies living in Toronto and are reading this, hit me up. I plan on seeing all the homies that I haven’t seen in a minute who are living out here.
With that being said, I’m leaving a good situation in London. I grew up in London and although it’s not the most exciting place in the world, I still have a soft spot for it. My parents are in London, I still have friends in London, and I have many memories in the city. I’m not done with London, I’m just done with London for now. Who knows, I might end up hating it in Toronto and just run back to mom like the baby I am. London is safe, it’s easy, I’m used to it. I feel a sense of complacency being in London. It’s not something that is challenging or new. I want more perspective, I need to make the changes in my life to become a more well rounded person. Getting out there is the only way I can see myself being that person that I aim to be.
My summer starts now. I have some plans lined up. I just saw Twice on Sunday – what a blessing those girls are. I have a boys trip planned for the 21st of this month, and I plan to see more friends and do more new things. I’m finally going to live the life that I write about in this blog. Toronto isn’t going to solve my problems, but what I’m looking for is that it provides me an opportunity to see things in ways I haven’t seen them before therefore allowing me to be the best version of myself.
OK enough live, laugh, love stuff.
