I left Gatineau at 9 am on October 8th, planning to be in Vancouver tonight around 9pm. And then yesterday happened, and I got tired of driving. And then it rained ALL through the Rockies. So, at 6, when I drove into Kamloops, I gave up for today. I decided that I can handle my remaining 4 hours tomorrow. I was supposed to stay with a friend in Vancouver tonight, but I’m happy for her that I didn’t. You know that feeling when you’re tired of being in your own body and everything annoys you? Yeah, that’s me. Better not to interact with fellow humans, methinks. And now I’m in bed eating pizza. Bliss!
So! Here I am, 4 hours and one ferry ride away from my new home. I’m super excited to get settled in and start my new job on Monday. Here’s a quick summary of what I’ve seen and done in the last 6 days :
I drove 4093 kilometers through 6 provinces and 3 states – I saw one living fox, four dead foxes, and a dead dog (sad face – a One Week moment that I did not want to live), but no moose or elk or mountain goats, even though all the signs promised that I would – I drank four liters of chocolate milk – I stayed in 3 hotels and with 3 friends, all Katimacontacts – I drove through way too much rain – I listened to 426 songs (that didn’t seem like much, but I counted and that’s actually 28 hours of music, and some songs I listened to at least 10 times… And yes, I just went through my iPod and counted the songs. I’m surprised at how many never got played!)
Aaaaaaaaanyway. I’m going to go and give my full attention to my pizza.
See you tomorrow!
