It’s funny how it happens sometimes. Today is exactly one month since I left Prince Edward Island. It also marks one month from the day I start classes at the University of Waterloo (on September 12th obviously…). So basically this is the middle between the two major parts of my life so far.
So what have I learned over my one month’s time here? I’ve learned that I can actually miss something as bad as I do. I knew it would be different without my friends and the familiar surroundings but I never knew it would be this different. I can close my eyes and imagine that I’m back there again. But I eventually have to open them to reality. I often wonder if I’ll make the kind of friends I had back on PEI. Will I integrate myself into the setting at Waterloo? Or am I going to always be an Islander traveling all over the place, never really finding a true home?
So many questions; so few answers. I guess I’ll find out soon enough. So here’s to in between lives.
