Busy… and sad

After a short two-week whirlwind stay in Vancouver, Lil’ Sis is going back to Halifax. =(

I don’t recall being quite so sad this time last year — back then, I had a shiny new relationship to pre-occupy me. I felt so guilty to feel relieved she was going home last year and that contrasted wildly with how intensely miserable I was two years ago that I cried at the airport when she left.

Halifax is so far away and Christmas, when I will be back, is so far away.

Why are the metropolitan areas of Canada so far-flung? Why isn’t everyone flocking to this province for job opportunities instead of the one (Ontario) that is a huge 4.5 hours away by plane?

Don’t mind me, I’m just going to take a sad day. =(

On this day..
