Day 8: Moving In.
So, I'm going to skip a days explanation of work because I think this is more exciting. I'm finally on my own. Me, and my roommate. My third roommate is coming Sunday. The place is nice. It's very clean and white. The two best things about this condo: the view at night and the walk-in closet. I'm so glad I don't have to share a bathroom with the guy. Guys can get atrociously dirty - and I expect nothing less from my roommate. Haha.. I'll be impressed if anyone can change my mind otherwise. This was my last delicious meal at my uncles before I'd have to fend for myself in my independent living.

Day 9: Mojitos and Ice Cream
Today was the company party. There was sushi, finger sandwiches, junk food, and wait for it... wait for it... mojitos, Stella beer, AND ice cream with sprinkles, oreo & fudge chunks, caramel, chocolate and strawberry syrup! Could you ever imagine? Ice cream party in the office? Well.. and alcohol in the office? It was heaven. The mojito mix was so strong that I could feel it for the rest of the day.

Well.. the party wasn't ALL about the food. I was actually really intrigued by the speech the president of our publishing company gave. He mentioned things like: CRM (customer relationship management) and forecasting. It was exciting to see school theories really playing out in real life. He even mentioned the likes of their Ottawa magazine. It does make me feel more homey that there are aspects of Ottawa that I see in Toronto. I even saw a building that looked like the Parliment from afar.

After work, I had to go get utensils since, apparently, you don't get utensils with furnished condos. I bought my first dishes/bowls/cups. It felt awkward buying a set for one, so I bought two in case my guests come over! :). I like them so. My dinner? - Frozen meal.

Day 10: Tiffany & Co. - $20k
There's a watch photoshoot going for next week. There's watches that are from $100 all the way up to $20,000. And, that watch being the Tiffany & Co. Insane. Would you ever buy a watch/accessory that expensive?

Day 11: Family Dinner
Today. One of the interns and I had to hand deliver the Tiffany & Co. watch back to the store. It took us 45 min to get from Queen St to Bloor St W. That's a little insane. From somewhere downtown to somewhere else downtown takes 45 min. I cringe at the fact that so much time is wasted commuting just within downtown. Anyways, so we went on our lunch, so I had to scarf down my sandwich on the subway.

Today, my roommates and I had our first home-cooked meal at the condo. We had: steamed brocoli w/ garlic, pork ribs with spicy sauce, soy sauce chicken drumstick, and vegetable soup. I will post a picture of a dinner that I cook all by myself when it will get to that point. I'm sure all you readers will be excited by my amateur cooking discoveries/phenomenas.


PS. I'm going to do a special video tour of my place soon! Stay tuned. :)
