1. Bank account needs social insurance number needs employment contract

Categories: None — Permalink

Sorting out my finances is harder than I thought. My funding won't kick in until September, although they're still paying 12 months of support. Good thing my parents made sure I was well-prepared. This is certainly not something I could do on my own (without being royally gouged by banks).

I biked up to St. Clair (uphill! on a one-speed bike! ack!) to apply for a social insurance number, only to find out that I needed an employment contract from the school or from an employer providing services on campus. Without a social insurance number, I couldn't apply for a bank account. Oh well. I guess I'll go again when I get the contract.

Still, nothing can put a damper in my mood. I signed up for Bikeshare! I can bike around Toronto! Wheee!

2. Wahoo! Bikergal!

Categories: None — Permalink

I've signed up with BikeShare, a Community Bicycle Network program that's like a library for bikes. They plan to turn Toronto into a little Amsterdam (err, the _bicycle_ aspect of Amsterdam, not some of its other aspects! =) ). Good stuff! CAD 25.00 gets you a season pass valid until sometime in December. You can borrow and return a bike from any of the hubs in Toronto, and you can keep a bike for up to 3 days. Very good stuff.
