And here goes my second installment of “Sunday morning pancakes!” I foolishly thought I might actually make pancakes this weekend, but the unpacking is fairly overwhelming and after doing my first big grocery shop yesterday, I’m not really interested in spending more money just to purchase baking supplies.

I have wanted to move into my own place since forever. The thought of setting up my own little home and finally achieving some kind of “grown-up” status has been tempting. So when I finally brought in the last box on Friday night and closed the door and had it all to myself – I was surprised at how alone I felt. The last two months have been a whirlwind for me. I went from my good life in Kamloops to a new place, new job, and new home. I have been very upbeat and excited about it all, so I knew at some point the change would hit me. I finally realized it is just me doing this by myself.

But I thought about this quote above. The last five years I have wanted to get my degree, quickly find a grad job, move out and just live (without the hassle of homework holding me back)! And I made that happen. So now that I am starting from scratch again and it feels a little lonely, I just have to believe in myself and my ability to make new friends here and create a life for myself. With a little hard work and some self-belief, I can get there. Here we go again…

    The quote’s so true. New beginnings are always hard, but they also always teach you something about yourself…
