I am a week away from the end of my unemployed post-student life. I finally found a job and it starts on the 14th of September. I'm kind of nervous, mostly because of the major life change that is about to happen... this is the first fall in 20 years that I haven't started a new year of school. It's also the first time in my life that I'll be able to be in a situation where it's possible for me to be completely self-sufficient and have disposable income. But with these perks will come sacrifice, and I experienced the first sacrifice today.
My friend Sherri called in the early afternoon and said that DAN AYKROYD HIMSELF was going to be at the liquor board store signing bottles of his line of wine. WHAT! We were so excited to line up super early and be first in line to meet Dan and get a picture with him but then it turned out that he is coming NEXT TUESDAY, not this week, and guess what happens next Tuesday: I fly out of Saskatoon to start my new job. It was the biggest downer of my day, that's for sure.
And so the sacrifices begin.
