So I gave Uber another try…

This morning I was running behind and needed to take a taxi to work. My brother has been telling me to give Uber another try, so I downloaded the app and booked my Black Car. I decided to blog my journey today, so here is my Uber story.

Ordered a Black Car at 8:44am. The estimated arrival time is 8:54am – off to a good start.

My driver was on the Don Valley Parkway, so the actual arrival time of the car was 9:00am. My Black Car was a Black SUV – not a good start because I bet it costs more. My driver was facing East on Dundas so has to turn around. I verbally pointed out the turnaround  road to his left, he drives past it to the next street and does a U Turn.

I ask my driver to take Lakeshore, he says it’s too busy. We drive South on Coxwell and then head West on Eastern – but the road is closed, so we have no choice but to go North to Queen St. Now we’re heading West on Queen St in traffic. It’s 9:09am now and we’re at Queen & Larchmount.

We finally get to Pape and he heads South to Eastern Ave again. The GPS is telling him to turn left at Booth Ave to get onto the Gardiner. The driver goes past Booth Ave into a construction zone – one lane of traffic with a police officer directing and we are at a standstill. It is 9:18am.

We finally start moving and get to the stoplights at Cherry & Front and now he decides to turn left to get to Lakeshore. I tell him to please just keep going West on Front. It’s now 9:23am.

At 9:30am on the dot I’m finally at work. A 15-17 minute car ride (I’ve timed it numerous times) took 30 with Uber and cost me $43, which is double what I pay for a cab.

And that’s how I got to work.



Show & Tell: Sept 26/14

I don’t have anything witty to write for you today but I want to get a Show & Tell up to give myself a bit of a break from life. It’s been super busy lately which is great, but it doesn’t give me enough time to really take a step back, relax and enjoy it all. I started a Yoga Challenge earlier this month and was doing really well the first two weeks, then craziness took over and I’ve only done it once since. The other night I was mega stressed and I took some time for myself to do the 20 minute Yoga With Adrienne video and it completely changed my mood.

Take time for yourself this weekend. Get outside, smell the last of the flower and tell the people around you how much they mean to you. Life is a gift and we are lucky to be alive.

Mawlynnong isn’t like the rest of India, or the rest of the world for that matter. Tucked into the jungle of the northeast Indian state of Meghalaya, on the border of Bangladesh, the village is home to the indigenous Khasi people. Theirs is a matrilineal society, where women inherit land, children take their mothers’ names, and men marry into their wives’ family homes. The setting is also unique: lush, and so well-cared for, tourists across India visit to marvel at the lack of trash.”

  • I recently found the Farmer’s Almanac online and have been reading up on the coming seasons. Here’s their Canadian Fall Forecast.
  • I have yet to get Jason to do yoga with me – but these 10 Awesome Yoga Poses for Men are where we can start!
  • The science is clear: we have to keep two-thirds of fossil fuels in the ground to avoid catastrophic climate change, so why are we looking for more? We need to start keeping oil in the ground, and the Amazon is a great place to start.Please watch the video below and then head on over to sign the petition to Call for an end to Amazon oil drilling!
