Goodbye Winnipeg and Summer Colds

11 Jul

The last couple of weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind. Two weekends ago I went home to Winnipeg to pack up some of my stuff and say goodbye to my house. The weekend was filled with goodbye parties and visits with friends. Roy came along with me as this would be his only chance to see where I grew up. I did my best to show him the sites and sounds of Winnipeg. It was a great way to say goodbye to some of the places I would frequently go to throughout my years living there. In my last post I mentioned that I would be doing something that would surprise people, well that certain something ended up falling through. I was supposed to go skydiving however the weather was off and on the day I was supposed to go so it just didn’t end up happening. I can’t lie, I was a little bit relieved but this is definitely still something I want to do at some point in my life.

Last week I was sick with a cold, summer colds are the worst! I managed to kick it enough to go meet up with friends I went to school with in Burlington. One of them lives there and invited us to come lay by her pool for the day and then spend the night. It really made me wish I had my own pool, there’s not a more perfect summer activity than lounging outside all day and eating BBQ. I definitely wouldn’t mind doing that again. And then yesterday, another big day! My parents arrived in Toronto making the move official. After unpacking some stuff we went out for dinner and then saw Horrible Bosses. This movie was hilarious, I seriously lol’d the whole time. I definitely recommend this movie to everyone, unless you get offended really easily as there are some pretty raunchy parts in it.

That pretty much sums up the last couple weeks of my life. I haven’t been feeling as anxious as I did before. Maybe it’s because I felt satisfied with my goodbye to Winnipeg and life right now is looking pretty good. If there’s sunshine and warm weather, how can you feel down for long?
