ten years ago today i was in canada

and i was looking in the eyes of a girl whose eyes looked a little like mine

first time i had ever experienced that

likewise, it was eye opening seeing canada through the eyes of a canadian

i remember so many things from that trip

ups and downs, highs and lows

i had just been dumped by my dream job (low)

but they gave me a sack of money as a parting gift (high)

and because i had done so well while i was there i was convinced the next place id work would be an even dreamier dream

those are the feelings i hope everyone has as they travel across new bayous.

we stayed in one nice hotel after the other because i was a master of Priceline

plus we did not give one shit where we would spend the night that night

so i would lowball incredible regions of town and ask for a great deal on a 5 star hotel

and every now and then luck said yes

but i must say one thing about fancy hotels

theyre all pretty much the same, big, tall, wide

i almost always feel like the fancier it is, the more people should be in the room

and its just usually some blue eyed sweetheart

or hazel

or green
