I’m SO not going to miss this place!

IMG_6864So, I’m back inside after over an hour spent outside in the middle of the night.  This time there was a real fire down the hall.  Apparently, someone set a door on fire.  I somehow slept through (I guess having a loud fan on high helped) guys in red bandannas banging on people’s doors.  The police were apparently here just before the fire.  The guy that lives in that apartment wasn’t home.  I woke up to smoke detectors going off and lots of screaming.  There was a lot of smoke in the hall.  I was really worried about how bad things would smell in here especially as they let the people on the first two floors back in a while before those of us on the third floor were allowed back in.  The hallway does stink from the fire extinguisher but my apartment is surprisingly okay.  But as the title of this post states, I’m SO not going to miss this place!

Big news

I was going to write this post a bit earlier this evening but was interrupted by the fire alarm going off in my building.  It was nothing; some idiot probably pulled it.  Anyway, I have some big news: I will be starting a new job in Ontario on August 1.  I am definitely ready for this change as I’ve been in North Battleford, SK for nearly four and a half years.  I am not really looking forward to clearing out this apartment though!

I have (obviously) completed ignored this blog this year.  Until now, it has not been the most exciting year but a few things have happened.  I will really try to write posts to make up for this soon.  If not, here is a summary:

  • I was home for Christmas/New Years
  • I went on a trip to Costa Rica in March
  • On Victoria Day Weekend, I went to Elk Island National Park and Edmonton
  • I visited the Great Sandhills yesterday
