Ohh boy, I haven’t updated in quite a while. I have a good reason—I got a job! And I moved! Two very big things, and getting settled in has taken up all of my time.
I am working for the Red Cross in British Columbia. The position is related to Disaster Management, and I was so unbelievably excited when I got the job that I literally skipped around my house in glee. Quite the professional, I am!
I found out about the job on a Friday, and by Monday I was driving across the country with my best friend and a mutual friend of ours. Just the drive itself was an amazing experience, and I will probably post pictures in the next couple of weeks.
I’ve been working for about 3 weeks now, and I love it. The job is a contract, just for the summer, but I don’t mind. The experience I’m getting—not to mention the opportunity to live in this beautiful place!—is totally worth it.
Another reason for the lack of updates is that I’ve been debating the future of this blog. I still believe emergency management is my passion, but I also firmly believe you should write the kind of things you would want to read. Looking back, I’m not sure I would read this blog if I came across it. I would really like to keep updating while I figure it out—but the posts might be more varied or inconsistent in the meantime.
Thanks for reading!
