there is so much to tell you

Posted by anya on September 3rd, 2008 filed in i feel it all

ottawa ottawa ottawa. this place is great. I have just moved into my apartment, met my roommates, and discovered the meaning of life. kidding (echoing jenya: в каждой шутке есть доля шутки). but the weather is great, the patios are wonderful, and the mood is light. I am living on the second floor of a coffee shop and a Korean restaurant that always smells delicious. It doesn’t help that I love Korean food. The apartment kind of reminds me of a loft, which is great. My room is big and spacious and what I have coined as ‘minimalist-poor’ (party because I have little furniture). The rent is affordable, I have wireless, and the controls for the AC and heat are in my room. muahaha. I live with two super guys – Ben and Park. Park is a Korean chef whom I haven’t spoken to much, but who seems nice. Ben is the kind of guy I feel like I could spend all my life learning from – he’s smart and kind and helpful and easy-going. And I’ve already managed to figure all this out even though Ben is sick and has lost his voice, so he whispers. Anyways, it makes having roommates a pleasure. I moved in yesterday, and haven’t gotten too much of a chance to explore the ‘hood. I live in Chinatown, which is conducive to good food and interesting people. Ben and his cousin Tom and I ate at a Chinese restaurant called Shanghai yesterday. Anna and Sal have both mentioned this place as a great one, and although I have not yet seen the karaoke drag show, I can attest to the fact that the food is delicious.
And who to thank for all this? Sal, definitely, for frantically leaving a Facebook message going “CALL THIS NUMBER NOW. ROOM IS BEING RENTED.” and Seth, for telling me to just take the apartment, because whatever happens it will be great. He was right. And Radu, who said “ok ok, the apartment is yours.”
I will write about work another time, simply because I don’t want to think about it yet.
I will admit that my last days in Vancouver were great, so I was a little ambivalent about leaving. But now that I’ve arrived and I bike to work and my days are beginning to take shape, I’m starting to remember why I love the escape game.
Ottawa is probably just another city but right now there’s no place I’d rather be.

    I’m really happy for you. Even though I miss you more than a hooker misses her soul.

    Since you’be been gone, I’ve been on the pills. I can’t breathe for the first time. I’m so alone. Yeah, yeah. Thanks to you, I don’t get what I want.
