So, i got a new job and start on Monday.
It's a three month contract at the Scottish Opera and i'm looking forward to it as it is within the fine arts and cultural sector and to be quite honest, i feel more at ease working in such environments. Although three months isn't a long time, i think that if i am still feeling as homesick as i am just now, i might come home.
i have been trying to distract myself from feeling homesick but it only seems amplified by actions. For example, Monday night i went out to dinner at what is hailed as the "best Greek restaurant in Glasgow". If it's the best Greek in town, then it is truely a sad state of affairs. As other patrons happily munched away on their wilted and bland food, i longed for the fresh dishes prepared with pride on Toronto's Danforth.
i've come to conclude that Glaswegians just don't know any better and that British food standards are not on par with Torontonians. Either that or i'm a food snob. But how can i be a food snob when you just assume that Calamari comes with Tzatziki?! That's just logic. i mean, what Greek restaurant serves greasy Calamari without Tzatziki?! And since when is Saganaki served in tomato sauce?! Such horrors are just another day at Glasgow's finest.
