Since my friend Yasemin died I’ve tried a lot harder to be a better friend, daughter and sister, like she was. I enjoy the people in my life right now. One goal I’ve started working on is coming out to more events that I’m invited to in the summer. I tend to turn invites that involve blaring sun, loud noises and crowds. This summer I’ve tried to change my not so positive attitude about summer
Last night was a good friend’s birthday and she wanted to meet at the hottest time of day down at Ontario place. I had walked there and back in the morning. Instead of being a pain in the ass party pooper, I decided to look forward to it. I put a cool sundress, a funky looking cotton shirt to block the sun, sunscreen on my face then road Bike Share down to Ontario Place. The bike I rode down worked well. (Sometimes they don’t).
The route I had just walked a few hours earlier was whizzing by me. Passing parks and pools, and tons of tourists riding Bike Share! It reminded me what a great city Toronto is. When I arrived, I was greeted by my two good friends who make the world a better place. At the Pan Asian Night Market I tried stinky tofu, and scallop in their shell, (all of which didn’t have sugar! ) and sat in the shade on the water taking in the lake breeze. I knew that was a moment I’d remember why there’s no reason to not love summer.
