Earthquake Anniversary and yet Another Place to Call Home

Yesterday was the one-year anniversary of the earthquake we experienced in Japan. It was strange for me since we were also out apartment hunting, checking out places on the 30th floor and higher, which normally wouldn’t be a problem for me.  One thing that I realized is that I’ve become uneasy with very high floors from the quake, and though Toronto doesn’t get earthquakes like many other places in the world (perhaps the rare minute tremor from earthquakes in the US), I still remember the day I thought I was going to get lost in the rubble of my home in Tokyo.

Perhaps I’ll have to stick to lower floors or find a place that feels very structurally sound…..unlike my current place…. Brand new though far too many creaks and all glass balconies that seem to be held together by chewing gum 😛
