So my school is probably the number one teacher's college in Ontario. We have a couple of SICK programs going on and AMAZING teachers. But it's isolated. It's a GORGEOUS city with nothing near it. The closest big cities are all at least 2-3 hours away. But I've come to love the area, especially as the leaves are changing!! Which is why I'm so excited for my first visitor. For most of my friends its too expensive of a trip (without significant benefits) to come for the weekend, and I totally understand (I barely wanted to live here for the first couple weeks). So when my dear friend JD told me of the possible adventure here I was ecstatic. JD recently returned from a couple months abroad so I'm very excited to hear stories, drink wine and just catch up. As I explained in my last post there were money issues. Thankfully, those have been resolved and he will arrive in about 46 hours :D
Hosting people (especially people with no money) can get expensive. I don't want him to have to pay for groceries... and we're both to poor to eat out. Plus wine.. but I love wine and there's usually at least one bottle in my fridge so this is a normal expense! I plan on taking advantage of the amazing city and going for a walk on the water front, through the forest behind the school and a stroll downtown. All of which are free activities and will hopefully be a good time! We'll hopefully be headed to my favourite bar in town Saturday night as well.. pre-drinking as much as possible then just enjoying the live music and atmosphere! I'm very excited for my first visitor, even if it means a more expensive weekend than usual!! TOTALLY WORTH IT. CUMMMMMMON THURSDAY NIGHT!!!
I'd also like to issue a formal apology for posting my personal life DRAMA on here. I love my friend dearly and was sad to find out about the situation. Sometimes you just need to vent..
