Living in a big city isn’t for everyone. But despite my suburban roots, Toronto is exactly where I belong. I love the pace, the lights and the infinite opportunities to explore. I’m infatuated with this city.
I’ll admit though, it’s just not easy to randomly friend people. And I don’t even walk around with my crazy showing
anymore. Granted, I’m a bit of an atypical little thing, but I like to think I ride that fine line of total nerdiness with flair.
And what’s more is that I’m not even referring to meeting Prince Charming. It’s been a while now since my second chance life began and I’ve been content with not-trying-to-meet-anyone-but-not-not-trying. But I’m starting to think that introductions are less likely to happen in cafes and on public transit than the Gossip Girl series led me to believe.
How does a brilliant young reader with a side interest in horrible television meet new people in the city?
