Very stressed. Work, school, home… All that stuff. Really stressed. Ugh.
If you are Canadian – Stay OUT of Mexico. They don’t appreciate our money. More Canadians are assulted in Mexico that any other country. Shame!
Four years ago I started a Residents Organization in my area to help build moreale, make the streets safer and get my street paved. It was in shambles… Loads of potholes. sewers backed up, the side of the street touching the curb had the brick exposed (VERY old) or had faded away. I was told by the City of Toronto’s Manager of Infrastructure repair that the street was finally scheduled to undergo a “major renovation” in 2009, but our City Councillor was pushing to have it done sooner. We moved. I still walk on the street on the way to the subway. It’s a mess. There is a large school on that street. So what a surprise when I walked on the street only to find that the sidewalks were ripped up and replaced on the Ssouth side of the street and they looked great! The North side was set for next week. Followed by the street.
I had a tear in my eye. Somehow I felt like the residents owed me their gratitude for taking on this issue since the streets had been in shoddy shape for decades but no one did anything about it. Part of me also says, Awww, fuck it. They would have fixed them anyways because of the school and TTC using the street.
On to the next, bigger and better community issue… Graffiti, vandelism, upgrades to the park and a street party for the summer.
