Well… I’ll try to keep it very short..
10 months ago, I though, that I would live a little part of my life in another, new country and return to my old life after.
Today, I know that I left my old life behind and will never return to it. I started a new life here and it changed a lot of things. I will never be able to live the way I lived before this year, as I learned things through experiences and I met new people that will forever be a part of my life.
In three weeks I will sit in the flight that once seemed so far away. The flight that seemed so interminable 10 months ago as I was sitting in the plane, not knowing what to expect and what I am going to experience. And then I got off the plane and met some weirs strangers that were supposed to be my family for the next year. Well… Those strangers became a part of my life. An important part actually. Thanks a lot to Bridget Uhl, Aurora Thiessen and Ray.
I came to McBride, wondering what the heck I was doing here and having the thought of leaving already in my mind. But I decided to stay and try to live here. I did and I will never regret it. Not because of aaaaaalll the shopping stores in this town and amazing buildings but because of the nature and the fun I was able to have here. I stayed.. Mostly because of the people.
McBride and dunster are amazing communities and I loved to be a part of u guys for 10 months.
Here, I would like to thank all the people that were nice to me….. Wait a sec… That’s all of McBride and dunster…
Well then, let’s thank the people that believed in me and helped me when I needed help. The people that had so many ideas how to make me laugh and how to entertain me.
First of all, a big thank you to Kathy Molendyk, the best area rep. I could have had and the person I could talk and who was there for me aaaaaalll the time.
Another big thank you to the teachers that gave me so much fun during class, especially outdoor ed.
Thanks to all the students in my classes that went with me through all the work and joy.
And thanks to all the people in McBride and dunster that I met somehow during my year. The ones I am talking about would probably know ( gym, library, soccer, morels…… Etc)
Did I forget somebody??
Ohh my friends!!!! thank u guys sooooooooo much. Especially my closest friend, Juli!!! I just remember that we met in Math class.. The first time we talked actually.. Was about math homework… Unbelievable… Whatever.. We established a friendship that seemed impossible to me..
Another big thank you to my other close friends, Jayda Mazereeuw and Coral Mazereeuw, Laurel Berg and Tasia Clinton. And aaaaaaalll the others that somehow became somewhat friends
