I just realized the other day it has been two full years since I moved to Montréal! Wowzers! Some days I wake up and still think I live in Vancouver but stepping outside and seeing the city not populated by asians snaps me back to reality (also only being only able to understand half of what people are saying to me… hehe).
Whenever I fire up wordpress, I feel like I should write a long blog post on my recent experiences living here. There are so many events that happen or great moments that I take pictures of that I never get the chance to publish or stay in perpetual “draft mode”. Mostly due to laziness, I admit, but also because there are just too many things going on all the time here that I never have the chance to just chill out and write. Don’t get me wrong, I love having so many projects that I’m working on. Really at the end of the day I would rather be producing and being in the studio than writing but it’s always good for me to take the time to reflect as part of my learning process. It’s also great lawls reading it back later on.
A quick summary of my past two years here in the city would be – lots fantastic dancers to learn from/work with and a hellavua lot of social dancing. What more can I really ask for really? Montréal really is the social dance capital of Canada and if you are serious about this crazy art of ours, you owe it to yourself to at least spend a chunk of time studying here.
I could probably spend more time learning the language though so people don’t think I’m stoooopid. Well I am a bit, but that’s a different kind of stupid. Wait what was I writing about again? Le sigh.
