Things to enjoy in Moose Jaw

I said I'd make a list of things I'll get to enjoy in Moose Jaw, so here goes. Be careful, reader, or you too may wish to join me in the friendly city.

1. My family (immediate family as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and nieces and nephews)
2. The spa
3. A running club!
4. A casino for my gambling needs.
5. Concerts at the Cultural Centre
6. Exciting tourist attractions!
7. Affordable homes.

People, I'm sure that this list will get longer and longer. I'm certain of it.

When are you coming to visit?

Please, please visit.

I'm finished. As of Wednesday, I have completed all the requirements for my degree.

As I rode the bus home from my placement for the last time, instead of relief, I actually felt a wave of emotion (sadness? anxiety?) as I realized that no obstacle stands between me and my move to Saskatchewan. No obstacle but time, that is (the month of December, to be specific).

So now I have a month left in E-town, and a long list of things to do/experience/enjoy. There are people to spend time with, restaurants to eat in, and massive malls to shop in before I go.

Yesterday, I celebrated my accomplishment by buying CDs that will let me wallow in nostalgia once I've moved. Mmm. Nostalgia. I like to prepare for future emotional experiences. Let's be honest. Transitions aren't easy, and it pays to have a soundtrack for any pillow-hugging episodes that are bound to occur.

Next on my to-do list: actually think about the good things about my upcoming move. More on that later.
