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....

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.
