God moves in mysterious ways--and fast. This Wednesday I have an interview at Toronto Botanical Garden in the north end of town. It's a permanent position with benefits and it's something I think I can enjoy far more.

Moving to Toronto, not so much. I was looking at apartments in the area, hoping to cut my commute down. Unfortunately it appears that the chief export of North York is commie blocks and bedbugs. Don't think I can stretch for a condo just yet, so I had a look farther south towards midtown; found a couple of nice art deco apartment blocks worth pursuing. Glenn Gould lived in one of them. Probably out of my price range, though. Ah, well; I'll find something.

Ooo, a botanical garden job sounds awesome. I hope you get it!
As for apartments, if you do get the job, perhaps you could get a roommate and split costs, so you can live in a decent apartment?

Thanks. Wouldn't be my first one; I did an internship at Royal Botanical Gardens an hour west of Toronto. Hope that helps!

Nah, it wouldn't work. We'd just be sharing a more expensive lousy apartment. Toronto isn't exactly known for good rental stock. Besides, after Foxy's recent experience with roommates I'm not sure I want to climb on that horse.

As someone who lives in a commie block you certainly have my sympathy. Hope the job becomes a stable platform so that (unlike myself) you'll be able to progress to a better standard of accomodation.
