Dear world, it’s been a while…
I’m laying the perfectionist aside and simply getting to the point: It’s transition time. Plans are afoot. People are asking what I’m up to. Well, here is the recap and update – for yes, some major plans HAVE changed!
1. Right now…
…I am still working at the museum! I work till the end of May. I am living with my younger brother, in the same basement suite we’ve been in since September. It’s been such a good place to be in too! He is working as well; at the tree nursery just out of town.
2. Soon… …I will be quitting at the museum! 3 weeks minus a day left. I am taking much of June off, galivanting with my Momma, enjoying life as much as possible, and preparing for the summer and fall because…
3. In the Summer… I’ll be working at camp! July and August I will be at Echo Lake Bible Camp, a fantastic lil’ place an hour and a half from here that I worked at last summer as well as the Program Assistant. I will likely be in a similar role again, and my good friend Kate (KG) is returning as camp photographer.
(Marshall will be at Ness Lake, for those wondering.)
4. Then! All three of us will be returning to the lovely little basement suite in September! That’s right – Kate too! She’ll be our third roomie in our happy lil’ family. And did you notice?
THAT MEANS I’M STAYING IN TOWN!
5. Because: The biggest draw for the previous plan – go to school in Victoria, complete their Education program and *poof* come out as a teacher in 3 years – was the fact that I could be done the degree in 3 years as opposed to 6 ‘most anywhere else. Long story short, I found out that at my hometown uni I can go to school for only FOUR years before *poof!* magically transforming into an elementary teacher.
Now, 4 years IS longer than 3, and I DO want to get this degree done as fast as possible, but the quality of life, cheaper living expenses, and my love for the North are all reasons enough for me to face an extra year of institutionalized education to gain a multitude of happier things. Like not moving : )
I have to say, I’m excited.
So get ready PG, you’re not rid of this lil’ dork quite yet! I’ll be sure to keep you posted on the occasional adventures. until then –
Peace out, Brussel sprout!
