I believe the wheels are in motion to move to Vancouver at the end of the summer! Oh my!
Steve and I had a talk about job prospects for the both of us, and things are looking a lot better for the nonprofit and journalism scene out there. There are a boatload of npro jobs at arts organizations as well as left-wing papers for Steve. They have some of the best things I could hope to work for including the David Suzuki Foundation, Arts Umbrella, Emily Carr School of Art & Design,the Vancouver Aquarium, UBC, and the OLYMPICS! That’s just a taste of the amazing possibilities.
We’ll have to wait and see how the job market is in the summer, but likely there will be some good stuff out there.
This basically makes Xray win a bet that after I visited once, I’d move there.
YOU WIN, OKAY?!?! I LOVE IT THERE!!!
Plus, pugs and the beach?! HELLO AWESOME.
Naturally there will be some sadness from all of this, including having to move from people like my much loved sister and niece, and also my favorite passtime of my city’s pug meetup group, but I think it’s a step in the right direction.
Who knows, I might even get a masters in the arts while I’m there… 😉
