>It’s happening in a week – Just like returning to school, I have to get my story straight, because people will be asking “what did you do on your vacation?”
Let me practice… ahem…
“Oh, nothing really. Joined Greenpeace, did some kickboxing, I tried to stay with the monks for a week but they were full.. Did the usual camping and fishing and hung out with family and friends. I ate everything I could and used all those nice forbidden words, such as ‘Sure, No Problem,’ and ‘Hi, how ya doin‘, and ‘Hey guys’
But I will tell you my big secret. I really don’t secretly yearn for the ocean wave. I would like to stay right here, thankyouverymuch, and forget all about that business. But I will not go wishing my job away just yet. I need to make enough money to get started in this world, and have you SEEN the cheapest house in Victoria? ($370 000)
Victoria is a land of opportunity since I left the last time. There are jobs everywhere – good, steady jobs everywhere. Every window I pass is hiring, and every government service is as well.
I wonder, am I missing my chance?
“Your chance to be an office shrew or work at Subway?” says my friend, “you have a great job and opportunities doing what you love right now.”
But at what sacrifice?
The Canadian dollar is equal to the US dollar now. I could complain about that, being paid in green money. I am secretly thrilled about it. Take that, George! I think…
I guess I have to start blogging again, there is so much to catch up on now. See ya soon!
