Been a while since my last post, mainly because I have been bummed out as of late. My focus has shifted towards EVE Online, a space-based MMORPG that kicks ass. Anyway, I wanted to shed some light on my upcoming trip to Vancouver, British Columbia, which is this January 24th to the 28th. The flight cost me roughly 180.00$ for both ways, as I used my AeroPlan miles to pay for the trip. What I actually paid for was the airport and flight taxes. All in all, quite cheap, yes? The hotel of course is another 200-300$ (staying at a Best Western) along with a car rental (another 100$ for a Dodge Charger). The reason why I’m going to Vancouver is because a good friend of mine is getting engaged to his girlfriend that lives there. They met about 2 years ago and have been ‘dating’ since. I don’t know how some people manage long distance relationships, but alas, it’s not my cup of tea. Regardless, I wish them the best, and I look forward to the party. 🙂 Oh, I’ll also check out Whistler while I’m there and do some snowboarding.
This past holiday, I was mainly with family and friends. Since I’m Armenian, we celebrate our true Christmas on the 6th of January (which was two days ago). It consists of families getting together and eating a lot of good food. I must’ve gained quite a few pounds from this holiday season! New Years consisted of the same thing with the same people (just a different house). After the ball dropped, I went to my friends’ house at about 2:30 AM on New Years Day and had a few drinks with the guys. A decent New Years, but wasn’t as crazy as the time I went to the Bell Centre to check out some famous tech DJs.
Oh, I bought some Sennheiser PXC 250 Noise-Canceling headphones for trip to Vancouver. I will be writing a review about them when I get back.
