this is a short post to tell you that i am moving to ottawa today.
i am scared and it feels like someone has a balloon in the cavity of my torso that they are blowing up which feels a little like anxiety.
and also excitement. i'm excited too. ottawa is full of the most wonderful people and my most darling friends and i know that this is the best thing i can do for myself right now and i will be full of happiness and fun and joy.
i'm driving with hot geoffrey, so obviously the road trip is going to be a hilarious display of disgruntled meaggy following redundant safety measures and my dear father trying to interrupt my crying. maybe i will make a rule: dad you're not allowed to interrupt my crying. i'm going to get there and be hurled into errands like oh i don't know buying everything you need to live.
i will post something longer about the shared tragedy of moving away from newfoundland. later. when i'm done crying.
for now, let this rock know i love her.
i love this place.
and i love all my friends and family that live here.
i won't be gone long. a year, maybe two. however long it takes me to find my way back home. my mother is convinced i won't return to newfoundland. obviously she has never met me. saltwater is in my blood. the sea is what i am made of.
god guard thee.
