I guess I haven’t written in here for awhile. I might as well update whoever still follows this blog of how I’m doing while I’m hungover.
I still cannot believe my time on the field as an engineer is coming to a close pretty soon. Granted, as a project manager, I will be on the field every so often, but it was great to actually be on site. My time in Oregon has ended a week and a half ago on September 24th. I’m surprised I didn’t cry but I felt so torn while boarding that airplane and leaving. I left alot back in Oregon. Like I said before, I did not think I would make friends in my 7 month stay. As I think about it now, they are surely friends I will want to have in my lifetime. It’s funny cause 2 years I simply didn’t know where Oregon was located. Now, I’m just planning when my next visit to see all my friends back in Oregon.
I am currently residing in a Best Western hotel in Trail, British Columbia, Canada. If you don’t want to search it up, I’m on the Eastern side of Washington just above the border. I flew to Spokane, WA and drove 3 hours and passed the border. I even got a Work Visa to even work here in Canada. It’s kind of nice being here. As an engineer, I am being challenged. The project manager here actually makes me think. I feel like my brain has been idle for a full year and it’s nice to actually start thinking again.
It’s kind of crazy about this opportunity. If I choose to actually get married or have kids, I can tell this epic story about how their mom left her friends and family to travel across the country to work in Oregon and Canada. I have fallen more and more in love with nature being out here on the West. That is something I will not take for granted. When I go back to NJ, I’m going to find a way to hike.
As for now, I will continue to figure out what I want to be as an engineer. I will continue to figure out who I am as an individual. I will continue to live life.
