the hemingway: beer. booze. babes. butts.

A couple years ago, 2007, I was in a job I began to hate so one day, I flat out quit.

I started doing freelance PR. It was good glam for a while but then I was poor ass. So…

I went to work at Hemingways, Toronto’s very own Little New Zealand in Yorkville. It was really fun. I hadn’t worked in a resto in a few years.

It was a bit tough at first to adjust to the lifestyle but it really didn’t take long. I made friends with a heap of awesome people, mostly hot girls.

I worked there for the best busiest time of year too; end of summer before Flm Fest – Christmas.

I was proud of myself for not getting sad about not making enough money doing freelance work, instead I pulled up my socks, hiked up my miniskirt and started serving.

No matter what job I was doing, I never lost sight of what I truly love…being social.

Instead of complaining about  the waitress life I took more shifts and worked as much as I could. It was a good strategy and worked well to bond with other employees.

I got a call in December from an old colleague, in recruiting who had an opportunity he thought I’d be great for. Turns out, I was great for it!

I left Hems for that job and stayed there until recently leaving to work for the MuchMTV Group. It’s amazing to think of all the changes I’ve gone through. Been going through lots of photos lately, there’s only about 10,000 from the past five or so years.

Wendy was one of my fav’s. She was a little crazy one just like me. We partied alot together. It was more than fun.  She moved away to Japan and is in the UK now I think.

Shannon and I got on really well also, she went away to India for a year and I had busted outta the joint by the time she came back. I love going back in there to see old familiar faces.

I’m really happy to be where I am now. I made a  TweetCloud of my most used words on Twitter from the past three months, they are love, haha, thanks. I guess that means I’m funny, loving and have good manners? Either way, they’re all positive 🙂

I’m excited for 2010. Rock on.

Happy Monday 🙂
