I used to live near the Grand River in Lansing, Michigan.
- My parents decided to settle in Michigan because our mother’s family is American and all live in OH.
Michigan was a compromise with our father because he was originally from Mississauga, Ontario. I decided to leave Michigan for Toronto in school so I could attend the University of Toronto. I was instantly taken back by the outdoor nature throughout the whole city. If you want to go for a walk in a park to clear your head, they’re located all throughout the entire city. I had a friend who got off the airport at Toronto Pearson for a supplier conference and he only went as far as a few blocks into MIssissauga before leaving the next morning. He told me that he wasn’t impressed by “Toronto,” but the man hadn’t entirely been if you want to get technical about it. Nowadays I recognize so blessed to live in a brick new home on O’Connor Dr near the Don River in East York. Ever since our first trips to Toronto years ago, I have wanted a brick house. And being close to the Don River is a treat because I have the best places to go for walks whenever I need to clear our head. I like using cannabis vape pens because they’re discreet in public and simple to hide when you’re out walking in a city park. I am so close to the Coxwell Ravine Park that I could throw a rock from our backyard and it would land somewhere in the park itself.
