Walking down W Pender to get to Smileys. I didn't think sitting at home on a Friday evening was a good idea, so I headed to my hangout (did the math - I've been at Smileys more times than I haven't been at Smileys while being in Vancouver). Had a few beers, and then Chris (my bartender buddy) gave me a free pitcher. I decided having an entire pitcher by myself was a bad idea, so I texted Danielle and Dave and they joined me for a bit. Good night all around... and good beer.
Updating my blog for the first time in two weeks. And what a hectic two weeks it was! Looking back at what's progressed... I didn't have a visa, a place to live, any clue what I was doing with my car, etc etc. Now I'm in Vancouver, employed, have a place to live, a parking spot, and know my way around sections of the downtown area. It's amazing how fast time flies!

Time to work out! I decided that biking from Vancouver to Whistler sometime sounded like a good idea, so I'm starting to train for a day long ride. Did a mild 20 miles before Big Brother started... I'm planning on getting to 100 miles before embarking on the actual ride.
Drove back to Vancouver today. I hadn't spoken with Alla in a few days, so I spent the evening relaxing on the couch and chatting with her. The views from my place are amazing... I don't think I'll even get sick of watching the waterplanes land in the harbour.
