I can’t believe I’m going home in a week. This last month has been an absolute blur – and while it’s had it’s ups and downs, the positives have for sure outweighed the negatives. I actually really like it here (except for the weather that can’t make up its mind, seriously) but I miss home so much, and I can’t wait to go back for a few days.
That being said, I still have a lot on my plate between now and then. While juggling a chamber ensemble, choir, wind symphony, individual performance and rehearsals with an accompanist as well as my regular classes, I have a lot of work to do. I’ve got a test the day I leave for Calgary and a performance this Friday (which I couldn’t be more excited for), not to mention the work my flute teacher is giving me. Who gives out essays in private lessons, seriously?
So I’m sitting here with a cup of hot chocolate, the mix for which I just bought at the grocery store today, and I just wanted to say that everything turned out okay for me. University is tough and people can suck sometimes and you end up being 17000 times more busy than you were in high school, but residence life is so fun, and sometimes people don’t suck as bad as you originally thought that they did. I would have to say, however, that the hardest part about post-secondary education is remembering to wash your dishes, take out the garbage and do your laundry. Oh and shower. Always remember to shower.
With seven days left before I head home, I just wanted to mention that it’s not actually that bad here. I love my friends, I love playing in wind symphony, and I love that amazing soup I had yesterday for dinner. Seriously, it was probably the best thing that I have ever eaten.
But I think that’s about all! So peace out folks. Don’t miss me too much, I’ll be home soon 😉
