Summer Holidays

Today is day 7 of my holidays and it is amazing! Believe it or not I am actually really enjoying Newfoundland this summer. Its been at least 3 years since I have enjoyed it this much to actually start seeing myself living here. Work started to get on my nerves and I find the more I work there the more it effects me. Thankfully however I am going to school in the middle of October and work will no longer be a 5 day a week task. However the idea of change and school scares me, but in the end it will be worth it.

While my parents drove down to Newfoundland, one of my best friends drove me to the airport to fly out 2 days later. On the following day after a red eye flight my parents were suppose to pick me up, but it was not the welcoming I was expecting. On the boat from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland my parents were delayed by 3 hours longer than expected which left me waiting in the airport for 3 hours. That did not impress me.

This past week I have been staying at my brothers and his newly wed wife's place which is probably why I am enjoying my stay more. As much fun as it is to see my mothers family, there is nothing to do in the small little town. At least here I can get Internet and watch TV when I'm bored.

This past weekend my Fathers family had a reunion and it was a blast! It was fun hanging out with my cousins whom some I haven't seen in years and others I just enjoy hanging out with all the time. We had some great laughs and photos. The biggest part was the fact that last time we had a family gathering like this one was my grandmothers 90Th birthday party. A week later she passed away. The hardest part of family reunions is saying goodbye and unfortunately I had to do that earlier today, not knowing when it is that I will be seeing any of them next.

Better get back to big brothers.


  1. I'm so glad that you are enjoying your time away. Relax and forget about work and school. You'll be back to it before you're ready. :)

  2. It's lovely to get away and relax and leave the trails and tribulations at home.
    Continue to enjoy life.
