We actually stayed in London for a few months while we were looking for a place down here, nice city but so isolated from anywhere else and overrun with students in pajama pants at all hours of the day.
HR but i am not sure i want to stick with the field. i've been looking into a few sales positions lately and might go back to school again. i havent been around waterloo much, but i've done some deliveries and other business in kitchener and i didn't really like what i saw, lol. i spent a summer in ottawa doing ceremonial guard and i loved the city, so if you're coming from there and enjoying waterloo then that's a good sign. i should look a little more into the k-dub area, but i assumed when RIM started tanking then things would be on a bit of a downward spiral around there. whats your business there?
i kinda like london, i used to really hate it growing up here and going to western then fanshawe but after working in hamilton and leamington i've come to appreciate it a hell of a lot more. its pretty boring and white and there is literally nothing to do unless you're one of those pajama-clad students (lol western). there's a brutal unemployment rate - i got laid off a few months back - and our mayor is one rcmp investigation away from being an actual criminal, but otherwise its not too bad. i like being 2 hours from everything, but im getting worried that i'll end up getting rooted here with my gf's small business. its a decent city and everything, but getting stuck here...
