Exciting news people! I’ve spontaneously booked a trip to Toronto. Boom! Leonie’s leaving for TO for work and as a best friend should do, I’m tagging along. Why wouldn’t I? Airmiles pays for the flight and accommodations are covered… kind of a no brainer right? I’ve never been to TO so if you have any suggestions on restaurants or great places to see, lemme know!

I’m going to be turning into a work trip for myself meeting with retailers for I See Noise and meeting with other bloggers from the East Coast that I’ve connected with via social media but it’s also come at a great time. The day Leonie and I decided on this was the same day that The Snowboarder had told me he can’t come back to Vancouver until July. So, I’m very happy to say that I’ll be seeing him for a few days when I fly over.

Speaking of guys… I had a date on Friday night and oh..boy…

The Mathematician Vancouver Newbie From Edmonton

It started on Tinder. GREAT conversation (which always gets me) and light, witty banter. He’s an Accountant who has been in Vancouver for 3 months. Within the first conversation (in fact, we only had one) he asked me out on a date in return for tax advice. Do you know how hard it is to get free tax advice let alone get it on a date that’s being (hopefully) paid for? Done dealio.

Do you remember my shoe fiasco with The Tattoo Artist? I sort of went through it again with him although this time I just straight up asked him what his height was. He told me he was 5’7 so I knew I was in the clear. Going on these dates has led me to believe that I am not 5’5 as my drivers licence will state but I am in fact 5’7… who woulda thought that I would grow in the last 9 years. *Face palm*… we were the same height and this time I wore flats.

We met at the corner of Seymour & Smithe before heading to Homer Street Cafe. Earlier in the day he had let me know that he was having  a rough day and could really use a scotch or 4. I had let him know I don’t really drink so he suggested tea (he may have been joking… but I took it, as it’s what I preferred.) 1 peppermint tea, 2 appies and a delicious chocolate pudding dessert later and we had a wonderful time. Lots of jokes, laughs and sharing of ghost stories… he was the perfect company. I had let him know that I had a lovely time (which I did…as did he) but unfortunately I just didn’t feel a connection (I didn’t tell him that). About 2 hours later the date was at it’s final moment and he walked me home. Begin goodbye jibber jabber and you either hope that moment happens or doesn’t happen… you know which moment I mean. The kiss. The goodbye kiss. THERE IT WAS. He moved in for it and I did something that I have NEVER done before. His face comes closer to mine and the entire thing was happening in slow motion… as he got closer and closer my instincts kicked in and I shot my head backwards with my eyes bugged out of my head.

If you saw this from a profile shot it may look a little like a fly coming at my face and me jerking my head away from it.

The look on his face was mortifying. I have never seen someone so in the moment humiliated. He had put himself out there and got nothing in return. All I could say was “I just don’t kiss that quickly on a date” and he understood and shook my hand and said he would like to see me again. We said goodnight and I walked inside. We spoke a little via text but nothing in depth.

The next morning I texted saying “How was last night?” and then quickly realizing that I had texted him and not Michelle I followed with “Oops! Sorry that was meant for someone else.” He used that as an opportunity to say that he spent the rest of the night with a bruised ego watching the breakfast club. Oops x 2? I told him “I apologize for bruising your ego” and he never responded.

Safe to say I won’t be dodging anymore flies.

Quick update: I’ve had 2 more dates with The Bocce Player from the other week… that’s all you get ;).

P.S. The most amazing surprise happened on Saturday evening. I got a call from Leonie telling me that she just saw myself and my apartment featured on Refinery 29. WHAAAAAAT!?!? Stoked! You can check out the feature HERE. BIG thank you to Refinery 29 and Home On The Runway for the spotlight.

Crave You

Currently listening to: Flight Facilities – Crave You 

 

I’ve got to say, this month of April has been rocking my ass in the best way possible. Let’s put aside the fact that our weather has been more than generous and my doses of Vitamin D are on high alerts but lot’s has been happening.

Yes, the boy situation is leaving me on a major high note, new content is constantly being created for the blog & new features have been busting out for I See Noise… but I’ve also started a new job! As of recent, I’ve become the latest team member at Gold Lemon Creative and I couldn’t be more stoked about it. It’s currently only a part time gig as I’m still working away with I See Noise Prints but it’s more than I need to get the creative juices flowing. For those that don’t know, GL is a company specializing in social media for companies throughout British Columbia. It’s my first office job – or at least one that comes close to an office job. It’s a great creative environment that leaves me full of new ideas for the blog and prints. Feeling pretty lucky at the moment.

Also, I hope you’re enjoying this week’s “currently listening to” song. I’ll be seeing Flight Facilities this week on Thursday at Fortune Sound Club with Michelle and Sharday… ahh!! Can’t wait! “Crave You” is definitely one of their more popular songs but the Adventure Club Remix is by far my favorite remix. If you’re not going…go! It’s sure to be a great show.
