So, I want to preface this post with an explanation as to why I have not blogged in almost two months: my computer broke. While in Rimouski, I was relying on my phone to keep me in touch, check facebook, etc. It was a real pain. But now that I am home, I have a tech-savvy papa who fixed my poor little computer easy-peasy.
I am home. As in, back on the Island. It is bittersweet of course; I loved my time in Rimouski and the amazing people there but I also am excited for this summer and what is to come.
This was a year like no other. I was in a new province, learning a new language, making new friends, being independent, and sometimes it was scary to be completely honest. There were a few rough patches: health issues, the passing of my grandfather, financial problems, etc. There were also some very pleasant patches that I shared with great friends: whale watching in Tadoussac, trips to Sainte-Luce-sur-Mer, Quebec City visits, going to Foret du Maitre Corbeau, and many other amazing experiences.
I already miss Rimouski!! But I am home, AND I get to see Laura and Joel tomorrow on their bike tour! I can't wait to show them around the Island some :)
