As I type this, I am sitting aboard a Coach Canada bus headed for Toronto, coming from Montreal. I am traveling at approximately 100 kilometers and hour. This bus is equipped with wi-fi. Technology!!!
It seems very strange to me that I am able to access the internet without using any sort of telephone or dsl or ethernet cables involved at all. I remember when I went to France, after being in West Africa for over a year, and suddenly there was wi-fi internet at the school I had gone to. It blew my mind that you could access the internet without a cable! However, that’s all become old news, and you still have to have the wireless router attached to a cable somewhere. But here I am, posting to Word Press, totally wirelessly! It’s amazing!
Anyway, I am heading back to Chicago for 2 reasons. I got a job! A job that requires me to re-enter Canada and apply for a work-permit at the “Point of Entry”. Also, I don’t have any winter clothes in Montreal and want to get a few things from mom’s basement.
As of Monday, November 8th, I will be the new Branch Librarian at the Montreal Children’s Library Richmond Square Branch, located in Little Burgundy. I’m so excited !!!
I also found a new place to live, sans cats, in St. Henri, a 15 minute walk from Richmond Square. Everything seems to be working out in the best possible way for me right now. The universe is finally aligning in my favour!!
I had a great Halloween, despite my boyfriend’s best attempts to sabotage the festivities. In a last minute turn of events, I decided to be a dead lumberjack.
