So Many Changes

Posted in Uncategorized by heather0609 on July 27, 2012

It’s been such a strange summer so far. We’ve gone from moving to Halifax and looking at apartments, to not having any luck finding a decent apartment, to joking about buying a house, to seeing a mortgage specialist, to putting in an offer, to having the offer accepted! That’s right, folks! We bought a house!i_2012072623482125 

To make a long story short, we’re REALLY excited about it! We’re going to be “home-owners”!


New Beginnings- or, WTF?!

l have no clue what’s going on in my life right now, other than I am apparently moving to Halifax. Last August l went back to school to start my life fresh now, all of a sudden school is almost over and I have a little more than a month left in St. John’s! I don’t know where the time has gone all of a sudden. When did it become July? This year has flown by and l didn’t even notice.

It’s funny how fast & slow time can seem at the same time. We never notice it when we have it but when it’s gone we have no idea where it disappeared to. So far school has been awesome, my marks have been great & l have very little to complain about. If only my job was as good.

I’ll never say that going to Firstchoice was a mistake, but working with my manager can be a bit stressful at times. So stressful in fact, that I’ve almost quit a few times because of her. There is a part of me that can’t wait to finish school just so l can put in my notice and never have to deal with her again, even if the other part of me is scared to death of moving to a new province and starting over!

What will l think of Halifax? Will l like it there? Will l be happy with my new career now that I’ve put so much $ into getting here? Only time will tell l guess.

I’m hoping to continue this blog just to keep a record, even if I’m the only one who reads it! Hopefully I’ll get some other people interested in what l have to say. Who knows, maybe I’ll get a following!
