I am slowly coming to the end of my vacation – a serene two weeks of respite and quiet. And the first in seven years.
Between university, politics, work, and campaigns, it has been a bit of a whirlwind. Graduating from university, two national blogging awards, to Judy Hehr’s CBE win (67%), working for Kent Hehr in his role as a provincial representative, and then Kent’s run for federal office (46.5%) – it has been quite the journey. Now, if you believe the papers, Kent is a cabinet minister. Huh.
Definitely a bit of a whirlwind.
Anyways, these past two weeks I’ve taken time to think about the people I’ve met, the work that has enriched both my life and others’, and I’ve begun to look a little more about future projects. And there are some amazing things happening in the next couple of years. I am excited for what is to come.
I’ve also taken the last two weeks to spend some time on myself.
First, I went to Chicago for a conference on digital campaign tools – learning and confirming lessons that I can apply to these new projects.
Next, I did something I’ve thought about for a while: correcting my eyesight with Lasik surgery. I’m going to be off of antibiotics in the next day or so, and the procedure seems to have taken wonderfully. I can see things without my glasses, and better than with my specs. To boot, it’s likely to even get better as the swelling goes down.
All in all, I spent time with friends, went abroad, and spent some time recouping post-surgery. It was a good rest.
