one hell of a year
I just have to post today... it's been exactly one year since I drove away from Toronto in tears, not really sure why I had to go, but just knowing this was a trip I had to take. December 13, 2005: I threw away my life and started over.
The roadtrip was one thing, but the time since then that I've been living in Vancouver on my own has been something else. (I've started a new blog that I think about posting to quite a bit that's linked on the right navigation bar.)
Nevermind learning about myself, I have a new career in a new field. I work full-time and go to school part-time. Last week I just decided that I'm going to stay in school part-time and work on getting my degree. Why not? Learning never stops.
A number of people have told me that they respect what I've done - a five month solo roadtrip followed by a move to a new city! That's pretty tough, isn't it! Well yeah, yeah it is. Sometimes I just smile to myself. A solo roadtrip. Of course it was hard. Silly girl, good for you.
