In the last 10 years I have moved first to Victoria and now to London.
I received an Associates Degree from the College of New Caledonia in Prince George, a Bachelors Degree from the University of Victoria, a Masters Degree from Yorkville University and am now working on another Masters at Huron College.
I hung out at a university in China for two months, spent three months backpacking through Europe with a friend and lived on a tall ship and circumnavigated the Pacific Ocean over 54 weeks while cooking for 35 other people. Thirty of the 36 countries I’ve visited have been in the last 10 years.
I’ve worked as an optometric assistant, cook on a sailboat, counsellor, and case manager in a homeless shelter.
Most of the friends that I currently have I have met in the last 10 years, and they’ve never met you.
And these are just the outward things that I can point to.
Would you still recognize me now? Ten years later? Would I still recognize you?
