This is bizarre. The last time I didn’t work for this long was grade 12 I suppose, but I was occupied by school. I worked during the summer between grades 10-12, so I think the last time I wasn’t occupied for some portion of the day for this long or slightly longer was the summer after grade 9. I have seen one of my friends, from a distance in his yard, my parents, my girlfriends parents, and obviously my girlfriend since we live together. Pretty surreal.

I’ve had time to work on my truck, to do organizing and purging and cleaning I’ve been putting off for years, to get very good at meal planning and grocery shopping for at least 2 weeks, to drink a lot, and to think. It took a while, but I’ve mentally slowed down from the frenetic pace of my job, and I have a vague idea of what I want to do with myself.

I think I want to work for Parks Canada. I don’t know what, or where, but I want to be involved in preserving parkland. We’ll see how long this lasts, I change my mind a lot.
