Linette on December 3rd, 2011
On Monday I moved to Burns Lake. It’s cold and snowy and just a little more remote than Vancouver. It’s also a lot smaller than Vancouver, with a whole new small town culture. When I was struggling to push my loaded cart of groceries over the bumpy, icy parking lot the other day, a random stranger stepped in to help me. On my first day of work at the local college, I didn’t just get introduced to the people in my department, but had a tour of the whole building and was introduced to every colleague along the way. And at the college staff party last night, I played my first game of curling at the local rink. If these experiences are any indication, I think I’m really going to love my new town.
