Reasons why it's good to be back home...

Just returned to my British Columbian homeland and here's why it's so bomb...
  1. THIS WEATHER
    From the moment I got off the plane it feels like it's been summer for months. I'm talking real t-shirt weather. Halifax can screw right off with its clouds and wind and rain. The Okanagan Valley protects us from such stormy nonsense.
  2. The Old Crew
    Already I'm making plans with everyone I've been missing for the last nine months. First up, a stop at Value Village to get back into the Vernon lifestyle.
  3. The Activities!
    With warm weather comes actually doing things outside again (or at least wanting to). Cliff jumping at Rattlesnake Point, hiking Cougar Canyon, Hitting up the Boulder Fields. That's actually a whole other list right there...
  4. $$$
    Starting back up with my Forestry layout job on Wednesday! All day out in the woods with big old paychecks. The best job ever until it rains or bugs get bad. I took a field course at Dal so I lost out on May money but it was worth it. Now it's time to double down to keep paying that fancy tuition.
  5. The Mountains
    I just missed em. Flat land gets real old.
  6. Friggin' RATAGHAST
    This cat is one of my favorite things in the world. He's not even mine but he's chill and hilarious and tough as nails and I love him with all my heart.
  7. My Getaway Time
    I love school, I do, but a lot happens in 9 months. Coming home let's me shed the bad shit while keeping all the good stuff and the friends I've made for next year. I'd say it's works the other way around but let's be honest, nothing actually happens in Vernon. And that's just the way I like it.
