bonsoir montreal hello toronto

I just got into Toronto a couple of hours ago and have been trying to unwind, eat some food, and figure out how to settle in. The past three days have been full of hectic packing, sad goodbyes that I tried not to dwell on, and realizing that I have too much shit to my name.

Arriving at our apartment was a bit strange tonight, especially knowing that so much of what lies ahead is uncertain. I don't know if I expected to get so attached to the lovely friends I have in Montreal, or whether I anticipated missing a city that saw me through so much grief, but either way it was very heartbreaking to drive out of Montreal today.

Tomorrow I will wake up and sum things up a little more astutely, try to represent my experience of Montreal better, but for now I am going to get a good night's sleep. I'm exhausted and kind of terrified, and most of all, hoping that all this kind of drastic change is good for me.

You look different in this picture.

Moving has aged you, terribly.
