No one can completely imagine how much last year stank. Yet out of that darkness I discovered my true self and learned truths about those around me. I know who I am now. I really didn't before. I have learned that my priority in this life is to take care of myself as I don't have anyone I can truly rely on to do that for me despite my omnipresent sneaky feelings to the contrary.
I moved to Montreal on Nov 1st and let me tell you, I love it here. I love the city itself because of its down-to-earth vibe. Ain't nobody tryin' to be somebody or be seen with somebody who's a somebody. People go about their business and they do their thing. The cost of living is next to nothing... I actually went out for dinner and a movie! Why the blank didn't I move here sooner?!
Either way, life is much better now. Gone are the days where I didn't know if I would make it. Now I know I can make it and I will make it.
