So the very reason I began this blog is now coming to a close. It’s time for me to go home.
I began this blog as a way of documenting my term abroad in Canada and it kind of spiralled into a poetry/diary/political commentary blog.
A lot has happened in the past four months. I decided that I want to be a journalist. I made some amazing friends, and I discovered that I hate snow a lot more than I previously thought.
I also discovered that I am quite brave.
Moving halfway around the world, far away from any family or friends wasn’t easy, and there were times when I wasn’t sure if I would cope, but I did.
I would even say I flourished here. Taking myself out of my old life helped me to clarify a few things about myself, and about what I want. After all of this time I can now safely say that I am ready to enter the real world. Do a real job. Take risks, travel far, push myself out of my comfort zone.
For those of you that have followed this journey from the beginning (all two of you), you’ll know that I went into this not knowing what to expect. I was adrift and questioning what I wanted and what I needed and who I was, and while that’s still happening, I feel like I know what I have to do now to get where I need to be now.
Even if this post gets no likes, and no one sees it, or cares about it, for my own sake and my own happiness I might as well say it- I am extremely proud of myself.
See you when I’m back in the UK Blogosphere, stay foxy!
