Decision made! This is a touch last minute, but I don't think it's so last minute as to cause any major problems. It's also not a decision made sober, but fun decisions rarely are.
So. Step one would seem to be to alert work people to my impending departure. To this end I've scheduled a meeting for tomorrow afternoon. Step two is getting the minor fiasco that will be the university application process dealt with, and step three is to find a non-gutter place to live. (This assumes both that Toronto lacks attractive gutters and that husi is devoid of gutter design experts, capable of Turning Any Gutter Into A Homey Gutter!) The remaining steps are relatively minor, in so far as it is less than completely disastrous if I horribly fuck them up.
I'm not sure why I feel so magically capable of managing this now when I so rarely have before. I suspect the week of drugs, alcohol and sloth spent with MissTrish is related. In the days following it, I've somehow managed to get more work done than I would normally accomplish in a month. Perhaps the key to productivity was just to stop trying for a bit. For whatever reason, I feel briefly capable of achieving escape velocity from this hole, and intend to take advantage of it.
Now, for a very special
Blossom Attention Toronto Infidels:
- Is there anywhere I particularly don't want to live? I'm aiming for cheap, and have no objections to living in a hovel, assuming it's not a hovel that will frequently see me shot at. I suppose looking for somewhere on teh intarwebs is probably the easiest (and only realistic) option. Relatively close (chronographically speaking, not geographically so) to the bulk of U of T would be really advantageous.
- Speaking of teh intarwebs, what's the delay like on getting a connection there? You can end up waiting a month here, which would really suck for work related reasons.
- What's the biking season like for people who aren't insane? I wonder if it's worth attempting to move my velocipede with me...
- I will likely need a place to stay for a day or two while I get apartment shit sorted out. The Shawshack is kind of an obvious option, if it's OK with its inhabitants, but I have a couple of workable alternatives if not. (The presence of people I know combined with some possible influence in U of T admission procedures being Toronto's biggest advantages for me.)
