Медленный Летние

I live in British Columbia, which is generally an excellent place to spend a summer. There are plenty of beaches and vineyards and the weather is gorgeous. I considered moving to Northern Alberta where work is more plentiful, but elected to spend a final summer at home. Mostly, it seems to consist of waiting. I wait for documents to be faxed, for local companies to call back, for each week's episode of Mad Men. For that reason, it's going to be a pretty slow summer. Even so, that might not be a bad thing. Getting ready to move is practically a part-time job in itself, especially when one is headed to another continent. I'm looking for work - both for money and for something to do, with some odd jobs on the side to supplement - and enjoying my homeland while I'm still there. This is going to be an enormous change, and I am under no illusions that it will be an easy adjustment. But I'm going to be as ready as possible to face all the challenges ahead. Russia awaits, but home is good for now.
