So I’m all packed and ready to drive out to Vancouver in 24 hours after living in Victoria for 21 years. I’m really excited about this new job opportunity that I have, plus it’s sort of exciting to be in the big city after living in Vancouver Island for so long.
It’s not a drastic move because I’m actually still staying in BC, and I’ve been to the city of Vancouver many many times before. However, I still don’t know a lot of people in the big city and I’m looking forward to seeing just how it’s like to settle down here. Plus I realize that a lot of people are wondering how it’s like to move to Vancouver, so I thought it would be fun to tell people about the whole experience in a blog.
I won’t be living downtown (it’s crazy expensive to rent even a 1 bedroom place!) but I’m renting an apartment near enough. I’ll be staying near Broadway and Granville, and it’s a pretty nice apartment. There’s a Chapters bookstore a couple of blocks nearby, which to be honest I’m really excited about since I’ve never really been so near a big bookstore before. I’m quite the book nerd, and I get hyped about little things like this, hahah.
The apartment I’m renting is furnished, but I’m thinking about hiring a maid service or something to clean up the place since the previous tenants didn’t really leave things in tip top shape. I’ll be looking around for one of those places later today.
That’s all for now. Got a little bit more last minute packing to do so I’ll update this more tomorrow!
