Notes on 60 days of sheltering in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Toronto Years
Working from home full time is not what I had in mind when I moved to Toronto. COVID-19 changed all that, for the time being, at least.
Starting in 2018, I've made an effort to watch more movies.
The Transit app's GO feature is a "game" where you help with their real-time data.
Life in my tiny apartment has been good.
The King St. Transit Pilot marks one year in existence, and I think it was a success at the outset.
Some reflections on the time spent alone in Canada's biggest and therefore best city.
Toronto held a synthesizer expo in August of this year, and it coincided with a pager duty shift. That meant I was able to visit, but I couldn't hang around it long. The purpose of my attendance was to gather information, and to see if Teenage Engineering would have a booth. They did not. I talked to the Roland folks, and mentioned that I was new to synths, and told them I was looking at the Pocket Operator series.
Spadina-Fort York is a federal riding, a provincial riding, and a Toronto ward, and the boundaries are identical. Being from British Columbia, and having spent most of my adulthood in Vancouver (which does not have a ward system), the riding boundaries do not match at all. The recent changes to the wards in Toronto (from 44 to a proposed 47 to an eventual 25) set the wards to match the provincial (and therefore federal) ridings.
