I think it is safe to say the last month and a bit has been a whirlwind of major life events, mixed with a handful of shenanigans and blended with a splash of bittersweet moments. A few weeks ago I finally got my G2 license (yea go highschool me!) and shortly after I jetted off with my ladies to Las Vegas for what we shall deem the wildest trip we have taken to date. After spending what felt like an eternity recovering in bed (a.k.a. sleeping 10 hours at a time and drinking excessive amounts of coconut water), I said farewell to my last five years of undergrad, walking across the stage to get my diploma. While I can say that’s a lot already happening in a month, I also happened to land not one, but two job offers—which led me to debate for hours and consult many friends/family members on my final decision.
I’m happy to say I just sent back my signed offer this week and will be headed to Toronto as of July! I will be starting my new position as a Marketing & Communications Assistant for Oliver & Bonacini Restaurants and excited does not even cover how I am feeling. While I am a little sad to leave the hustle of startups and the thrill of the tech world, food is something I’ve always felt a great connection to, so this seemed like a natural transition. But as I have learnt over the years, you never really know where you are going to be in ten years time, so might as well enjoy the ride and live in the moment.
Now my days are spent stalking craigslist and kijiji for apartments and bed frames, but I really can’t complain. Blessed to have such amazing people and opportunities to look forward to!
