Ever since Karen told me about AGO’s First Thursdays last summer I’ve always wanted to go (okay I lied I never went with her but I forget why #SORRYKARENiloveyou #butseriously #loveyou). I finally went this week with Kristina since we’re all grown up and all… #notreally.
me: can we get a full body shot
random dude: of course!!!!!!!
… …. …. omg look at our feet it looks so amazing!!!!!
WHAT I LEARNED AND WILL PROBABLY KEEP IN MIND FOR NEXT TIME…
1. SHOW UP EARLY
Since I started moving into my apartment right after work, by the time we got to the museum it was around 9:30-10? Not the best time to show up and appreciate art because there was so much we could have seen (and eat) but so little time. So for next time… prob gonna show up at like 1pm #jk #startsat7
2. TRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE ACTIVITIES
There was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (is that enough Os for you) much going on that I didn’t know what to do with my ADHD self. We were walking back and forth like let’s do this WAIT NO LET’S DO THAT NO WAIT NO WAIT FA;LSDKFJA;LSDKGJOWAEIJ;ADKFJ; let’s just go home. But seriously there was a live band, painting activities, FOOD #mostimportant, drinks, and of course, art. Moral of the story is show up early so you can do everything the museum has to offer and do not bring kids because it’s a 19+ event so why would you do that anyway.
3. Do not press “uber pool”
Okay this has nothing to do with the museum but I accidentally pressed “uberpool” (who knew that was a thing?!?!) so we ended up having to wait for some random dude for five minutes even though he never showed up #ihatehumans. Just a warning for all you people who didn’t know about Uberpool to not use that option if you are in a rush like we were.
Overall… I loved this museum. I feel like mainly because there were no kids running and screaming so it was almost like a free yoga session. But really, I was at the Ontario Science Museum the other day and there were so many kids running and screaming with parents yelling “STOP RUNNING. STOP SCREAMING. THIS IS NOT THE PLACE” that I’m forever scarred from having kids. ANYWAY back on topic, this was definitely a great experience and I definitely recommend trying it if you are ever in Toronto during the first Thursday of the month!
Lisa … AND KRISTINA!! 🙂
