I’m planning on going to Toronto for a friend’s wedding in June, and I’m looking for a few ways to save money for the whole trip. I’m just mindful of the amount of money it takes to get from point A to point B and back, and I’m going to try to cut back on the unneccesary expenses for a little while: eating out, CDs, DVDs and Blu-Rays. Not that I don’t have a bit of a backlog to slog through anyway.
From time to time I wonder if I should consider moving to a bigger city or further West. It’s tempting…on one hand I love Halifax and really would like to move there, but on the other hand, I sometimes crave a bigger leap from the familiar and the safe. Usually, when people leave New Brunswick, they head in one direction. I know for sure I could never handle the Fort McMurray thing. But I wonder if I’m limiting myself when I set my focus on Halifax. One factor I need to keep in mind is the cost of moving to a further city: this is where Halifax beats out the competition. I feel too frustrated with this province in general to stay in New Brunswick: it’s one big company town.
