Well I thought it’s well about time I gave an update on my life and not just about where I eat!
I’ve settled into Vancouver, living right on Stanley Park on the 18th floor. I have ridiculous views of the park and out across second beach and English Bay. I have the cutest little Chinese flat mate, Amanda. She cracks me up everyday with her funny words (still learning English) and the funny things she does. Like coming out looking like a monster a few times a week when she wears this crazy paper face mask! Lose my shit every time!
Last week I got a job! Whoooop yay me! I was actually starting to make contingency plans for if I didn’t get a role. I was potentially ooking at leaving for NZ but all at once I had a huge amount of calls for interviews and I found a job I really wanted. Next day it was mine! So I’m now the Account Co-ordinator – Social Media at Mediatonic PR. It’s a lifestyle and boutique agency, different to anything I’ve done before but I hope to learn a lot, especially in PR. They’re a lot heavier on the strategy side than I’m used to and I hate tracking every minute of my day but I love that I get to go to Kelowna for the Centre of Gravity Festival next week and all to the other great events I get to be involved in.
I have some great friends and I actually had to buy a diary to keep up with my social engagements! I hate being bored so I’m constantly on the go meeting people for dinner, lunch, walks, drinks, shopping etc. Hilariously they’re almost all Aussies – I can’t get away from the buggers!
Anyway gotta run, off to another dinner date.

Wow! You live in Vancouver?! It seems like you have a great view out from your place out. I miss the city alot!
I do, I arrived not too long ago. When were you here?
The view is amazing. I can never get sick of it.
I was there about 2 weeks ago. Stayed there for about a week and I feel in love with the city.
Awesome, I find new things everyday.
Fun blog this time, and super views from your spot beside Stanley Park. Congrats on your job, nice to have one with perks like festivals. You will be coming to the Okanagan valley, close to where I live in Penticton. Looking forward to reading your blog about your experiences, make a note to check out the Mango Cafe downtown Kelowna – you’ll thank me.
Thanks for your feedback 🙂
Ohhh – yes I definitely will! Thank you for the heads up, I hope to have some free time Thurs evening. The rest of the time I will probably be at the festival!
Congrats on the job! It sounds great 🙂 I love having an active social life – there is no ascaping Aussies! They (we) are everywhere
I know right?! I swear they hang with me just to make fun of what remains of my Kiwi accent!! And thanks, it’s definitely fun! I’m at a festival in Kelowna as we speak…
Ohhh,it is not a crazy paper mask! But it is funny to find myself in the blog Lol!
Haha I just found this!! And it is crazy! Makes me laugh every time 🙂 x
