thoughts on my upcoming move 📦 

One thing I’m looking forward to about living back in New Brunswick is a larger apartment with a home office (I’ll be working remotely for... ever haha).

My desk in new York is comically small, and a bigger space means a bigger desk, and enough room for me to put a lil basket on it, like a sourdough basket, for my cat to sleep in. Next to my monitor, while I work 💤 😺

Other things I’m keen on... hmm...

A yard. Like a front yard. Not having a a door that opens to a hallway, but just to the outside. A freaking mailbox. A garbage day.

I’m trying not to gloat or whatever, but five years living in New York has lowered my bar of a nice apartment to “oh my god, you have like a whole two rooms? Separated by a door? Amaaaaaazing.”

Okay more things I’m excited about... (moving to unlisted so as to not spam people)

New Brunswick has this incredible microbrewery called Picaroons (any lumberjack fans out there? jk I know there are). Their beers are *amazing* and all have really great stories and regional names. Can’t wait for next summer’s Dooryard ale, but I’ll have the Winter Warmer to, well, keep me warm ☺️

The place has fibre internet, which is very cool. We’ll have an extra bedroom for a home office. I’m going to get a couch, in my office, for when I need to step back and ponder my work. Amazing.

The accent... oh my gosh. People will finally sound right to me again. I can’t wait to stop correcting my own accent too and let myself sound like a maritimer again. (There are some lines I won’t cross, though – for example I’ll never call it “kwee-beck”.)

Okay, rapid fire: Celsius, Greco pizza, the CBC, the trans Canada walking trail, proximity to Halifax, folk music, the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival, farmers markets... oh and let’s not forget my family! My niece and nephew have grown up nearly a year since I saw them!!!

@skelly thanks!!!

@ashfurrow Hope the move goes smoothly all restrictions considered. I've lived in Atlantic Canada my whole life, and while I'm aware that it's far from perfect, there's no place I'd rather be, especially right now.

@GiantIsopodDivision aye. We’ve got a lease so it’s just getting the forms filled out and we should be okay!
