Hello kind krafters!
It’s that time of year again that most of us begin looking forward and preparing for the business to come in the form of a new semester, new classes, maybe a new school, and for some of us a new season of work or phase of life in which we are no longer rushing into September in pursuit of academic goals.
For the first time since I was child starting pre-primary, I will fall into that later category. This time around, September does not signify the start of another round of orientations, classroom “get to know you” games, paper writing and exam taking. Instead, for the first time this September will signify nothing but a shift in my working schedule and a move towards cooler temperatures and extra layers. This September I won't be returning to classes.
But, as some of you who know me personally may be asking, you haven’t graduated yet! You still have classes left to complete! And that’s true. Instead of taking classes this September, I will be finishing off my last three course requirements in a Natural Resource Studies Program, on an island off the coast of British Columbia. In January, as the grind of classes once again starts anew, I will be flying to Haida Gwaii, and ending my University career studying what I love, in a way I have for a long time yearned for.
Where I’ll be heading this upcoming January for the Haida Gwaii Natural Resources Program
