Today, my mother, aunt and I woke up at 6am to drive the Moho (a 30 foot motorhome) to my new found friend’s place near Goldstream Provincial Park in Langford. We left by about 7am, and arrived at around 10am.
On the drive up, I found myself getting emotional. I felt overwhelmed at how my whole life has unfolded, and I am starting a new, with this Masters program. Just one month prior, I was hired in a new job that is my dream job. And although my personal relationship had changed, I felt strong and determined to push forward with my Masters. My family has made this an easy journey, especially my mother. For some reason she sees potential in me, and when I said I wanted to go for my masters, she has chosen to be along side me the whole way. Even when we spend 20 minutes fuddling with the blocks under the Moho this morning trying to get the darn thing level.
Once they left I spent only moments collecting my things, because I have been dreaming of the what it would take to make a daily journey from Goldstream park on my bike to Royal Roads University.
Well, it took me 1 hour and 5 minutes exactly, and here I am already typing away at the Library. Already I am feeling more fit, and energized for learning, and look forward to logging my learning with this blog! Stay tuned for more!
