Looking back on 2002

My Christmas card art for 2002.

Well a happy belated Christmas to you all! I hope that yours was as relaxing as mine… watching hours of Murder She Wrote, drinking litre upon litre of Coke, and writing cards and letters to people I like and dislike alike. The picture above was sent out as my Christmas card… I had a lot of fun with Photoshop making the snowflakes and turning my shirt blue from green…. the printer was screwed up though and printed everything green.

2002 was one of the most eventful years of my life. It all began with a huge event – my epic journey from the Island to my new home in Peterborough. It was one of those once in a lifetime opportunities to significantly improve my life. My best friend had a prophetic dream about my future which helped me overcome my demons and face my “destiny” if you will.

I am almost halfway through my second year at Trent University (I did summer semester),  I never knew that i could enjoy education this much. It’s not enjoyment in the same way that one enjoys the Simpsons but something like peeling your first lemon (I eat lemons). I’m learning a lot and getting stuff done.  The best part of 2002 however, was the traveling I did!

I’ve gone all over Ontario again, and again, plus places like Montreal, Calgary, Winnipeg, Regina, Chicago (twice!), Indiana, and Michigan. 2003 will be a year not of transition but of stability and continued growth. I live in a wonderful house with great roommates and a landlady who brings me cake – it doesn’t get much better than that for Nathaniel!  Oh yah, I almost forgot. I am in crippled with debt. I have massive loans that I can’t repay.  I don’t want to sound too rosy – might jinx things.  HAPPY NEW  YEAR! 🙂

I am a resident of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada who has blogged here for 20 years. I like to share my thoughts and feelings on my own online space. From 1998 until 2017 I worked as a journalist and I hope to use this website as an archive for all of my stories.
