Edmonton Move

So it's official. I am now in Edmonton, and have been living here for a week now. I live in the downtown area, on the edge of skyscrapers and warehouses. Work is a 3-5 min walk from my apartment - I can see it from my balcony. So pretty much my daily life is work-home, work-home. Depressing? Nah. I thought it would be, but now that I think about my last year at Fluor, it was the same. The only difference is I come home and I need to take care of myself. Then, I went home and had my mommy to feed me and clean up after me. However, living in 600 sq. feet of space doesn't involve a lot of cleaning. Also, I don't know why I can whip up dinner in 1/2 hour while my mom takes 2 hours.

To me, Edmonton's a pretty scary place. It's like a giant Forest Lawn. Everywhere you go, there's always some creepy sketchy looking building. I am not kidding.  Therefore, I really just stay home most of the time. My area isn't too too bad. I guess there's a police station about 10 blocks away. :P The roads are so bad. Potholes are EVERYWHERE. My poor Luigi. I hope his shocks aren't too damaged. 

No matter how boonyish Edmonton is, I will still explore. I found a crepery that is like 3 blocks away. I will have to check it out. Oh yeah... Edmonton has Red Robin. OMG. When I saw it, I got Bailey to go with me last weekend and I satisfy my 4 yr craving for their Banzai burger. It's my ALL TIME favorite burger. Just because of this restaurant, Edmonton got major bonus points!
