I arrived in Portage on Thursday afternoon and by Friday afternoon I rented a house, opened a bank account, purchased up all the amenities - phone, internet, utilities etc AND got most of the basic furniture and food.
This job was sooooo made for me.
The best news is that the local charity shop had a one year 75% off sale yesterday and it was just the best timing in the world. I got all the basic needs for the kitchen + some really funky furniture for under $80. My place looks awesome, almost as good as toronto. I miss the advice of my old flatmate Tom - he had style.
Speak to you all soon when internet gets connected to my pad.
