times like these

Well. This was me playing around with my camera during the holidays. People tell me I am obsessed with self portraits. This one, I was experimenting. Which, I guess, you could say is what I am doing out in Calgary. It has been my first true step out in to the real world on my own. Yes, I have been away from home before, but there was always a sense that I was being sheltered before. This time, I came out with Matt and am living with my sister and a friend. I have a job at a lovely Italian eatery named Buon Giorno's. Some may say I should leave all the details out, but then that would lessen my chances of having a stalker! Where is the fun in that?!
Calgary is beautiful, and surprising in many ways. But as I have stated on the ever-famous facebook, I don't believe it could be my home. I thought that with all the opportunities here that it would be easy to make a life in the city. It is not that things aren't nice here or are even terribly hard. Just different than I had been expecting. I am going to be here for a while no matter what. Matt ended up going to the oil fields, but my job isn't bad so far. I intend on making the best of my time in the west. I have good friends here and visitors coming and going, that would be hard not to enjoy!
