I have an opportunity to study with a Norse Shaman, who happens to live on a neighbouring Island, so he is only a ferry ride away. It's actually the chance of a life time and he has put me to my first task of learning the runes. I am excited about this and am learning them fairly quickly considering all that is going on.
I'm one of the 99%, as so many of us are. However, I am opinionated, and passionate and have joined Occupy Nanaimo, so from the sidelines I have been writing letters and getting steamed and calming things down on the forums when I can. It is something I really believe in because it's becoming more and more impossible for me to produce 3 meals a day on our budget.
We have had issues with our
SlumLandlord, so we have been looking for a place to live. It looks like we may have found one. This means I will be packing up all of our stuff over the next few weeks if everything goes according to plan. Once we move out I will be able to, in theory, go out more. When we move, things will be easier, I'll be close to shopping and buses and friends again, but that is a month away.
In all honesty, since I've found out we are moving, I've been happier. Hope has returned and I'm actually looking forward to the new place.
