Where has the past two months gone? I swear 2017 only begun yesterday. I’m three months into the new year and nothing has changed. Like every New Year’s resolution, they fall short within a few weeks. I must be one of millions who aim to lose weight every year. I try but pizza always wins. I actually miss the gym (who am I?).
The 1st of March will be my 1st of January. I’m joining a gym. I’m cutting pizza out of my life, for lent anyways. I’m going to bike everywhere, or try my best to. I’m also going to post my list of things I want to see this year whilst I’m still in Canada. I regret not utilizing my first 6 months, or should I say 8 months now. It’ll soon be a year and I won’t have seen half of what I hoped for.
I think this was the biggest thing I had to adjust to. Before coming to Canada I thought I could work part time and travel at every opportunity. Obviously I live in a dream world, where money doesn’t exist. Money does make the world go round, regardless of what anyone says. It’s not all about adventures and excitement unfortunately but I will try and make the best of it. I really do not want to come home next year and regret not doing what I wanted.

I haven’t included the east side of Canada on here as I’d like to do that next year, before I leave. I also would love to do Route 66 across America. I’m not sure how my bank balance will take this but I like to dream big. Any sponsors welcome!
This isn’t a complete list and I’m sure it’ll be never ending. I’m always dreaming of doing something or going somewhere. Watch this space.
