So when I wrote my last update i was in a coffee shop looking like a hobo with my gear scattered all around me as I typed away, now I am sitting at the University of Washington in seattle and I feel right at home with all the recent grads walking around campus all beaming with smiles.
Today I am headed into Canada where I won’t have a phone for 5 weeks to keep in touch with my friends and the people I love. Last night when I was talking to one of my best friends she helped me calm down and instead of being scared and sad that I was going to be isolated, I was able to realize that this is the time for me to work on myself and learn how to be more content and happy with who I am and do a little “soul searching” so to speak. To be cut off and have time to just think away from distractions is what I wanted and why I chose Alaska as a final destination. I knew that north of the border i would be tested. Not to say I haven’t been thus far, I just have had THE best friends in the whole world rooting me on and sending visual messages that helped pick me up. I know everyone will still be rooting me on and just thinking about that will help me out more than a lot of people can even understand.
