Do you ever wonder why the robins sing in the morning? It must be the beauty of the sunrise; sure puts a spring in my step and a song in my heart. I haven’t slept past 5 am since arriving in Toronto, which suits me just fine because I don’t want to miss a single minute of this incredible journey.
Day 4: Today was the hottest day of July in Toronto with temperatures reaching 30°C. Our day started with a live broadcast outside Global TV (www.globalnews/toronto/), showcasing the Miss Teenage Canada delegates on both the local and national news segments of The Morning Show, topped off with our signature “snap” greeting to onlookers near and far. Look up, look way up, and you will have seen Miss Teenage Canada delegates high atop the CN Tower (www.cntower.ca). At a height of over 550 meters, the view is magnificent. The glass floor, a mere 2.5 inches thick and 113 stories above the ground, was a little scary, but since it can hold the weight of 14 hippos, it was totally safe and super cool! Today we traded in our heels for the comfort of our HiTec (www.hi-tec.com/ca) walking shoes and stopped in at the largest mall in Toronto, the Toronto Eaton Centre (www.torontoeatoncentre.com) for, yes, another shopping extravaganza. I decided that, today, I would spend my money wisely so the only things I bought were some eye shadow, a phone charger, and a delicious supper from Extreme Pita (www.extremepita.ca). After the mall, it was more crucial runway training for the final show. Everything is really starting to come together. Only one more day before preliminary judging!!!
