The Big Move
First, I want to thank these fantastic ladies for sharing their stories about moving away from the house that they grew up in. I had no idea so many people would be able to resonate with me but it definitely made me feel less homesick.
I moved on the 25th which is exactly one week ago. I can’t believe I’ve only been here for a week! I’m getting used to this new place already. There’s one thing I will never get used to though: THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT TAKES TO COMMUTE ANYWHERE. From where I used to live, it used to only take me 30 mins MAX to get to school/work/downtown/Burnaby/Richmond. Now it takes me 90 mins to go to those same places =.= Not fun.
Before I show you some pics from moving day, I need to tell you guys something:
I think I’m a workoholic. On top of being a chocoholic.
Lemme break down my summer for you:
- 4 part time jobs
- 1 course at school
- cake business on the side (blogiversary and spider-man cake coming up!)
I just can’t say no, I’m a YES woman. If an opportunity presents itself, I will take it, that’s just how I am. I didn’t plan on having so many jobs, but I got accepted into every one that I applied to (which I did not expect at all!). Technically I won’t be working at 2 of the jobs that often, but I did promise my employers that I will work when I can. So I still hold the positions I just won’t be there regularly.
Just outta curiosity, how do you guys manage your time? Are you also a YES woman/man and like to take on way more than you should?
Here’s a pic of Mixy with me in the front seat. There was no way that I was gonna put Mixy in the moving truck.

There was stuff everywhere! We had to temporarily use the basement staircase as a storage place.
The clutter that is my bathroom.
UGH. dreading the clean up already!
The clutter on my room floor.
I’m just gonna take a break and lie on my bed for a bit…
Oh shoot, the movers are here, gotta get up. I wanna own a moving truck, the electrical ramp is so much fun!

YES. We have cable and internet!!!
We ended the day with a feast. Can you tell that we like our protein?
