Back in Winnipeg after only a week and already I’m finding it hard to use a keyboard again. God only knows what I’ll be like in October. So, it’s been an interesting week at that. I’m staying in a 17-girl dorm, with 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and a single phone between the lot of us. Speaking of which, CALL ME!

I hated it at first; everyone seemed to be a bloody pothead and everyone had done this sort of thing before, but I’ve met some cool people. A girl from Uganda who lives in Winnipeg who knows a guy I went to high school with, Brad the Bald Chef who pretends to be a gay Jehovah’s witness, and some others. Not everyone’s my sort of people, and it’s hard to sleep with so many people around all the time, but I guess I’ll get used to it.
My first serving experience was a WEDDING. I got to wear a tuxedo though, and serve over a hundred people fancy meals. It was hectic, and I couldn’t carry the big trays on my own yet, but I got through it no problem. And then we got to eat wedding food afterwards. I’ve never SEEN so much food in one week as I have recently!
I’ve earned two nicknames already. “Crash”, which I earned from my HELICOPTER TRIP (!), and “Roast Beef”. I like.
I finally have a really cool boss. 🙂
This Tuesday we have wine tasting at 9am “to help us learn”, and then a boat ride to one of the other islands. And I get a Smart Serve certificate, which means the end of dead end jobs when I get back for the winter!
I am missing you ALL though. A LOT. I miss Winnipeg, and I miss being around people I love. I’m off again on a Greyhound late tomorrow afternoon, but hopefully I’ll be back in a few weeks to see you all, even if it is just for a day.
PS: ROBYN, YOU WATCHED 8 HOURS OF MI-5! NICELY DONE! 🙂
