Since July of this year, I've been to Hamilton twice, went to an Ontario cottage for the first time while living in Toronto, and have gone to a co-working space every couple of weeks or so. While I've mostly been working from home, I haven't exactly been sheltering in place like I did for the previous 16 months.
I attended a Hamilton Honey Badgers game.
Having someone to speak with and continuously practicing writing is essential in learning a language.
Toronto feels like a city again.
A month and a year of staying at home as the weather warms.
12 degrees Celsius and sunny during “Spring” in Toronto was the perfect weather to do a tour from the book Toronto Architecture: A City Guide by Patricia McHugh and Alex Bozikovic. Ontario lifted its "strict stay-at-home order" last month, so I no longer felt guilty about wanting to visit the neighbourhood adjacent to mine.
After 12 full months of working from home during a global respiratory pandemic, I'm not sure I learned a lot.
Things are going about as well as one could hope while stuck at home.
This is the new year, and we are still "locked down" (if you want to call it that).
