I live in the suburbs and I commute to downtown Vancouver for work. Now that I’ve been doing that again for the last several weeks, I’ve seen a few of my former co-workers who live downtown and commute to the ‘burbs for work. We pass each other on public transit, going in opposite directions. Do I feel sorry for them? I don’t actually, they get to live downtown while I just work there.
A little birdie told me today that one of my former co-workers has made his move away from the big mothership out in Burnaby. This fine gentlemen has his last day out in Burnaby on Friday and will be not half a block from where I am in Yaletown. I am super excited for him and look forward to having another lunch buddy. Another survivor makes his way back west into the promised land!
On a totally unrelated note, if you’re homeless in Japan, here’s a few things you can do.
