Today was my last class at SFU and it hit me that today will be the beginning of alot of last things while I am in Vancouver, and although its soo hard to psychologically prepare myself to going home. I am doing the first step and admitting, that not saying I’m leaving doesnt mean I am going to stay here.
This year has taught me soo many life lessons, I cant begin to start to explain, and as wise Elisa said “its not the place you are at, its the people who makes the experience. I have been fortunate enough to make a few of the best friends I could have. I know that our path will cross again and again in this lifetime.
I have been challenged, I have been pushed outside my comfort zone, discovered new foods and places. I have gone on adventures to the rockie mountains, making my first snowman, ziplining like a bird, first time skiing, seeing men strip, to giving a friend a makeover, having the killers nearly kill me, experiencing -40 degrees and still surviving, to seeing live Russel Peters.
I am not sure how any other experience will be able to top this one, but comforted by the words of Jewels song Hands ..
“If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we’re all OK
And not to worry ’cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won’t be made useless
I won’t be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear”
This is a picture of the first day in Estonia, and as this chapter of my closes a new one will start and that gives me hope!
