running around Toronto

Untitled
A few weeks ago, I went out to interview with a certain French business school. The interviews were very involved - not only did I have to interview twice, with two different people, I had to prepare a 10 minute presentation for each, topic of my choice. The first one, in the lobby of the Royal York Hotel. Dark with big, soft armchairs everywhere ... smells like money. #OMCMB baby.

After my first interrogation interview, I had about 3 hours to kill, so I wandered over to St. Lawrence Market. I remembered that a shop in the basement sold Fee Brothers bitters. And I found it! Lively Life Fine Foods, carrying the most amazing selection. $11 for a bottle of orange bitters.

Probably shouldn't admit to this, but I did go for a pint at C'est What. Appropriate before an interview or not, this was my second one of the day, it was hot and humid outside, and let's be real, this is David Fang in a fucking nutshell - they want you to be real for these interviews right? Just keeping it real. And yes, a local IPA-style brew, delicious and all kinds of satisfying.

Exhausted, but made it out to the Broadview Rooster Coffee House for my second interview. So many hipsters here my head hurts. Looked totally out of place in a white shirt and suit. Gave my little presentation again - much smoother second time around - and had a great conversation. Ended late, and didn't get home until very late. So beat, but I think I did a good job mixing business and a bit of fun into one day. Side note: I got my acceptance from the school a few days ago.
