Anyone living in Montreal or have any advice on which neighbourhoods might be safer and quieter with fewer bars? I've been thinking about living there for a while next year but don't even know where to start narrowing my search for apartments. I'm one of those hypersensitive people who can't stand the sound of music or television creeping through the walls (however traffic and daytime street noise doesn't really bug me much) so recommendations for concrete hi-rises or typically quiet-at-night areas would be most helpful. Really want to learn french and it's close enough to Ottawa that I won't be too far from family and friends, and also have a new city to explore and draw in! Definitely need to start thinking of a new adventure.
To those with outstanding commissions - they're actually almost done! I'm nearly finished pencilling the last one and colouring the other, but I take my time between colouring and lineart (and thus end up working on two different orders at the same time) because staring at this screen too long burns my eyes out to the point where I can't even differentiate the colours I'm looking at. Ow. I so wish my old CRT still worked, but nope, it was time for the recycling depot. Expect posts soon :> I'm excited to be making progress. Been a rough winter emotionally. I can't wait for spring.
