I’ve made no secret of the fact that, despite living and working in one, I hate suburbs. But yesterday I found one thing that I can truly say is better about the ‘burbs. Impossibly inexpensive estheticians.
Seriously. I just did a quick Google search that tells me that the price of eyebrow threading in Vancouver ranges from ~$5-$23. But out here in the ‘burbs – $2.50!
Once upon a time, a bright eyed young graduate student, in search of a better way to procrastinate, decided to start a blog. She called it “Thesis Writing is Hell” and her early blog postings were all about her thesis and thus, really never meant for anyone to read. Pretty soon, however, she ventured out and blogged such insightful things as “Happy Birthday, Sarah,” and “I play hockey,” and “I went somewhere” and before she knew it, she was a full on personal blogger. And that “once upon at time” was exactly five years ago today.
It’s hard to believe that I’ve spent the last five years typing my inane thoughts, and occasional political rants, into a little box on my computer screen, then unleashing said thoughts out onto the Internets, and even more hard to believe that you people out there read them. And keep coming back back for more!
Being that I’m indecisive and have the attention span of a carrot, this blog has seen four different URLs, which don’t exactly correspond directly to the four names I’ve used for it, as well as three different apartments, the finishing of the fabled thesis after which the blog was originally titled, and two different full-time jobs,. I’ve chronicled six trips up the Grouse Grinds and nine races in these past five years, not to mention 22 trips!
It’s been a fun five years of making new friends, bringing you photos of hockey hotties, and ranting about David Emerson. Here’s to the next five and whatever adventures they may bring!
