Hiking, Travelling and Dreaming

This was intended to be my thoughts on travelling, but I'll have to tame my wanderlust for a while longer....

Life is too predictable...

I think taking the job is a step in the even more predictable direction. Why do I have to be so darn responsible?

I love my profession, it will definately keep my brain active and require problem solving, but I know that I have been saying for years that I needed to travel. The longer I postpone my travels, the less likely it is that I ever leave...

Some days I feel trapped... confused whether I'm in it for me or for the other party and the comfort. 25 is too young to already be a part of an old, boring, married couple.

The space, being away, is great. However, it gives me time to think about the above!

I hate this town, its people and its weather. In Montreal I was running in shorts and capris and here I've had to revert back to the winter spandex. People think I'm odd for running because I'm not overweight. But seriously, running is all I got here, apart from my placement, which is why I'm here in the first place.

Living out here is like a painful, never-ending marathon. Each km goes by so slow. I know what's at the end waiting for me (my new real job, my own apt in a place that I'm more comfortable in, and a month off before I start the job). I know that when I leave, I'll be experienced and hopefully ready to work on my own as an SLP. Here I am getting a great placement. I get to work with 2 wonderful supervisors and it's all with children and I'm getting more experience with Autism. By the way I see the race going, I've completed 1 mile, I have a stitch on my side already and am doing breathing exercises to get to the finish.

I may not be a city girl but this place isn't for me either... if I'm gonna be in a small town, I wanna be in a small one where I can play in the mountains with other people that love the outdoors as much as I, not in a small one where people are close minded.
