oh look, i wasn't just drawing the north shore on the previous page... i wanted to burn it to the ground! at this time i wasn't feeling too happy in north vancouver, with its stores all closing at 6pm sharp, its lack of good stores and places to hang out, and the generally unispiring vibe. and it was a pain for me to get out to see friends. this dissatisfaction was further accentuated with the awkward, temporary living arrangements, and a stressful unsettled time at the new job. not a great period in general!
