Today marks four years since I arrived in Calgary, well, 4 years ago today was my first full day in the city. The trip from Ontario was an interesting one. Four days across country, I drove through Ontario as opposed to going through the US since I had a full trailer and didn’t want the customs guy to say something like “let’s see what is at the front of the trailer”, I never would have gotten it loaded again.
The four years has gone by pretty quickly. When I arrived, I didn’t know the city of course and I rented a place in Forest Lawn. This used to be one of the rougher neighbourhoods in the city, I didn’t mind it there though. I’ve moved twice since getting here, keeping up the trend that I started in Ontario.
My fourth anniversary at work is in a few days. I now work from home, haven’t gotten into the office since August. I have gotten quite comfortable working from home and I get a lot more done, no one comes to my door to ask me questions. Quite nice.
I have settled pretty well here. I am coaching ball, this is my third season as the club manager for the Babe Ruth Rockies club. I have learned the city pretty well and it is home now, has been for a while.
So, thanks Calgary for four good years. Here’s to many more. 🙂
