It's random, funny things like this that make Vancouver a very interesting place to be.
I finally found a place to live! Apartment hunting has been, needless to say, a pain in the ass, and I'm glad the search is finally over. My new digs will be far from my normal stomping grounds but I think I'll enjoy living in the eastside. I especially look forward to having quicker access to The Drive, a colorful, offbeat, multiethnic, and hippie neighborhood with the best vegan bakery ever.
