In all honesty, it doesn't feel like 1 year and 6 months has come to pass since I first set foot in Canada. I can still remember vividly the last days that I spent with my friends and family in the Philippines, the goodbyes, and of course the family friends who welcomed us to Edmonton. I can still remember the chilly weather and the smell of spring in the air. I can remember the dread I felt as I looked out the airplane window.
So many things have happened in my life, both good and bad. It used to be mostly bad. I was really depressed and was about to give up but I'm glad that my life has finally become better now. I am happier and I now have hope for the future.
Time really flew fast this time and I can't believe that it's almost time to enter a new chapter in my life, school.
I'm amazed how I was able to survive the past few months of mental torture but I guess taking things slowly and surviving each and every day is the way to go. Because if all I do is wait for the distant future, it would really make the waiting unbearable and I wouldn't be able to focus on what is important in the present.
On wards to the future!
