I am feeling a little nostalgic for the 26th year of my life. So much happened in my 26th lap around the sun. I started the year surrounded by my closest friends and family having delicious food and drinks.
This girl in this picture had no idea what was ahead of her. All she knew was she was getting on a plane to spend 5 weeks exploring Europe and then hopping on another plane and moving across the country.
Twenty Six has been filled with so many experiences, with many milestones in my personal and academic life and my nursing career. Two of my best friends got married to the love of their life and I’ve collected multiple WestJet magazines. I go hiking for fun now and spend my evenings at the beach. My love for food and wine has only grown, and have had opportunities to attend conferences and network with so many nursing faculty which will shape my career.
I have received so much love and support from my family and friends even living three hours behind and have made so many new friends and have started to build a life in Vancouver.
Twenty-six has been such a year of growth for me that I am kind of sad to see it go. But that is probably because I like having a sense of control.
Who knows what twenty-seven will hold, I just hope it includes more wine and good food.
