The move to Vancouver went reasonably well, without any glaring flaws. I’m the sort of person that always leaves one thing behind, and it looks like I escaped this time without incident. I had to leave a couple of things behind for space and weight reasons, but most of everything I own fit into three bags and a satchel. Yay?
I’ve been somewhat lucky inasmuch as there’s been almost as much sun as there has rain since I’ve been here. I keep telling myself not to get my spirits up too much; the annual average is more than 161 days of rain every year, and it’s not exactly an every-other-day, Monday sunny/Tuesday rainy/repeat scenario. I console myself through reminders that I haven’t seen the slightest hint of snow since I arrived. Not reminding myself, mind you – just friends and family back in Toronto whom I wish to torment.
Speaking of Toronto, I’m working very closely with my good friend Danny Sedore, a filmmaker and all-around awesome human being, on a new project. Details will follow, no later than March for an update, but as of right now it looks like there’s some seriously exciting news coming at you guys. Stay tuned.
Finally, my article ‘The Gen Y Inheritance’ is now running on the Huffington Post! You can view it here. I’m humbled to be included as a Huffington Post blogger, and thanks to everyone on the team!
To all my Torontonians, I miss you. I’ve lived all over your city, and that means that even all the way out here it’s easy for me to adapt and feel comfortable. After all, one apartment is much like another – even if you can see mountains from your balcony. All that said, the city doesn’t feel like home yet.
I’m having an amazing time learning this new place, its people, and the ins-and-outs of living here. I’m working on new and interesting projects with great teams, and these are the things I want to share with you. So keep an eye out, no matter what time zone you’re in!
Below is a letter that I sent to Dan Aykroyd some time ago, and that I’d like to now share with you.
