While wandering the streets with one of my bests I kept wishing we lived in a bigger city (clearly this wasn't for a photo shoot ;)). A city where the summers last longer than two weeks and you don't have to drive ten blocks to the nearest Starbucks. A girl can dream can't she?! Soon Meghan (my friend in the photos) will be doing just that - pursuing her dreams of being a model and moving to the big T.O. I am slightly jealous very happy for her and wish her all the best. For me it's back to school - a life of reading and late night candy. The other day I was talking to a girl who was visiting from Toronto and she made an interesting point about Saskatoon. One that I had never really thought about before. When your walking down the street it is possible to see every face that passes you by; you truly notice people. Where as in a larger city your goal is to just make it though the masses to your destination and your really don't notice anything except the back of the person in front of you. The lesson I took away from the conversation is this: if nothing else take the time you do have in a smaller city to standout no matter what your passion or interest, because you never know who's watching or where it could take you.
On a side note: I think it's about time I move out of my parents house- yes I still live with my parents. I was planning on milking that cow until I am finished my degree, but now I don't know. It's not a money thing, I have two jobs and pay for all of my expenses with the exception of rent (obviously). Regardless, I am ready for a place of my own where a leopard print area rug DOES go in the living room and where I can walk out the door and see something other than a suburban waste land.
