The Truth

Someone said to me today, “From your Twitter it looks like you’re rockin’ Toronto.”

Wha?! My Twitter has only been about the sad/ weird/ amusing things I’ve seen or thought. It’s interesting, in that funny and sad way, what people will glean from others’ social media posts.

I saw this video today that sums up what most social media is like for me, and probably you too. Watch it, it’s only 2 minutes long.

How’s this past month in Toronto been? You want the truth? How about in the form of a gif? Here you go:



I don’t post about my self-loathing, loneliness, or awkwardness of living in a new city because I don’t want to dwell on it. I over-share enough to know that not everything needs to be broadcast. When something really good or really crappy happens, trust me, you’ll know. In the meantime, you should follow me on Twitter, apparently I’m rockin’ it.



I’ve been in Toronto for only 5 days.

This afternoon I was walking down the street from a successful meeting and I checked my bag for my $133 monthly Toronto Transit Commission pass.

It wasn’t there!


I never lose anything!


So I retraced my steps.


I realized I either dropped it or someone pick-pocketed me.

Then it set in.


I walked 45 minutes back to where I’m staying and felt…



Meh. It’s just money.
