Baked kale chips are the best thing that happened to me food-wise in a long time.
I had my shift at SickKids at 6pm so I left the house at 5. At that time it started to pour buckets after buckets. 100% soaked including the umbrella. By the time I finished my shift at 8, news went around that the subways were flooded and were officially shut down. One of the nurses jokingly said that I should just buy a sleeping bag and stay overnight at the hospitalhahaha. Dad called and said he couldn’t come cause he would be stuck in traffic for hours and would get nowhere due to power outages. So another volunteer and I went to take the streetcar on Dundas + Yonge and streetcar after streetcar was full with people shoved right up against the doors. At 9:30pm people were lined up at Dundas square for the substitute shuttle buses on the Yonge line. After 1.5hrs of waiting, pushing and shoving I finally got onto a streetcar and made my way down to Dufferin. I caught the Dufferin bus and halfway towards Lawrence the street was 100% black. All you could see were the rear lights of cars. Looking out the window meant looking out at pitch black. Then Lawrence was all jammed up, since the street lights weren’t working, so I walked all the way to Keele, passing 3 packed buses on the way. WHAT A DAY.
I find so much peace in videos of crowds singing my favourite songs.
Ed Sheeran’s (+) album and The Mentalist and cheesecake tonight. It’s a perfect album for V-Day.
