Amanda the Architect

documenting the projects and inspirations of an unemployed intern architect with some ambition and lots of time

So Long, Canada

It’s official. Moving day is here! I am currently on my way back home to Missouri. I have already made a list of things I will really miss about Vancouver, and I thought it would be a good idea to list things I’ve missed about Missouri while in Canada.

Here it is:

  • JCrew
  • Netflix
  • Old friends
  • Anthropologie
  • Air conditioning
  • Frequent road trips
  • Owning, not renting
  • Alcohol at grocery stores
  • Using credit cards online
  • Amazon.com (.ca is horrible)
  • Being a citizen (less paperwork)
  • A yard (for our dog and a garden)
  • Having a car (for the weekend trips)
  • Less expensive food (everything’s cheaper in general)
  • Not having to share a building with neighbors (turn up the tunes!)

Favorite Websites

The theme for today’s yesterday’s 30 Day Journal Challenge is was to make a list of your favorite blogs. I decided not to list them in my sketchbook, but the exercise is still a fantastic idea.

I follow many blogs that I love, but there are also other places on the internet I frequent. As you may have noticed, the two right columns on my blog are filled with links. I wanted to go over some of them today, and highlight my favorite places on the internet. I have grouped them into three categories: Blogs, Resources, and Social Media.
