My beautiful city was cut up and I had to zigzag my way through the streets to avoid police lines and potential violence. My comfortable lifestyle became uneasy, I was unnerved and upset ... even my quirky and humorous outlook on the summit was tested while I witnessed first-hand what it feels like not be trusted while I walked down Toronto streets I frequent every day.

My feelings are still reconciling themselves as more and more stories are revealed and I fold those tales into my own personal experiences. 

As for the third thing I thought would be disrupted? My cellphone worked and wasn't jammed within the area this whole weekend ... well, I guess that's something.
