a day in my life

12 Oct


walking home from Kensington Market


Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers and Happy National Coming Out Day! YAYYYY! Wow there’s so much to cover, first off another career change. I’m now working at the Lakeview Restaurant over at Dundas and Ossington in Toronto. There’s also another interview coming up and I’m curious to see what that place has to offer. The great thing about all of this has been my attitude. I never once panicked or went down the shame spiral but rather looked at all of this as a great chance to try something new and meet people along the way. As it turns out I was only unemployed before people started calling. All I have to say is: Be Proactive and pay close attention.

I really wish I had news that my book was finally done but I can’t. After months of revisions I am revising once more but I will say this, I’m so close that I can almost taste it. In the meantime, have you checked out my collage blog I posted on September 10th? Here it is in case you missed it. friend Sojin Chun invited me out the day before Thanksgiving to the Flash Forward Festival in Liberty Village. Check out the pictures I took for Sojin.

Thanksgiving was spend with my bud Ben and his husband Rob and their friend but I can’t remember his name. After working my first shift I booked my ass home, changed as quick as possible and made my way over to their place. Rob is the Supervisor of the kitchen over at the Mariott  Hotel downtown Toronto. I believe he has his Red Seal and was insisting that I go ahead and get mine. I’m looking into it but like always I move at my own pace so leave me alone. Cooking aside from writing is a great love of mine. I know we’ve seen it all before in the single’s profiles of dating sites: I love cooking! As Elaine says, “Good you better or else you’d die!”

Social? I’ve been meeting guys here and there but I haven’t felt anything except a liking for them as friends only. Grindr, the Iphone app, is amazing! It’s basically a GPS that tracks other Grindr users within kilometers of you. If anything as I see it, I’ve had great conversation with some cool guys and of course some booty on the side 😛

I’ve been helping Elaine out with her blog, she’s a great story teller and it’s fun working with her on this project. When together I ask questions and type her answers down, other times I’m strictly typing and listening to the story. What can I say I’m a proud nerd.

Before I forget I’ve been getting tons of emails about when my next video is going to be posted. I have no idea when it will be but I promise I’ll get to it when I’m back on my feet. the holidays are coming up and Frank really wants to go away…far far away. Don’t know where yet but I’ll keep you posted.

September is just around the corner

9 Aug

Wow, seriously I can’t believe that I haven’t written ANYTHING on here in such a long time. My summer has been one hell of an adventure and with all the highs and lows I definitely have learned a lot! First off, when in doubt trust a friend! Second, Trust yourself more than you trust anyone else. Third, never sit around and feel sorry for yourself – your future will be crappy because you haven’t prepared for it!

Monday, I find out if I get my apartment. I want it. I want sooo bad. It’s in the heart of downtown Toronto, just around the corner from Boyz town aka The Gay Village.

I’m registering for spring classes at University of Toronto. Study of interst: Creative Writing. Now, aside from my novel I need to figure out how I’ll make some cash from this degree. Any suggestions? Leave a comment!

Also, In September I’ll be launching a few more blogs but I won’t be giving anything away just yet.

Other than that, How’s your summer been?

In The Nothing

24 Feb


This morning, I woke up late, brushed my teeth and got dressed. The streetcar was late, or I had just missed the one before and now my coffee is cold. My closed captioning office is freezing and my excel sheet is littered with inaccurate airdates. The hat on my head is too tight and my jeans are loose and droopy. I’m not cool. I’m left out. I’m really fucking bored. This is what the last week of February feels like in Canada. Nothing feels good and everyone is annoyed. The cold has frozen our ability to be kind and we’re just fed up with this fucking cold! CP24 says it’s -14 but the Weather Network (which of course I reead on my Black Berry) tells me it’s 66% humidity…it’s cold. Really cold.
