Who here enjoys interviews? I certainly don’t. I don’t think anyone (or at least anyone sane) enjoys answering the “so tell me about yourself?” questions all too much, because really how easy is it to discuss yourself, “Uhm, well I am a dog person?”. Anyways, three days ago I had an interview, I went in feeling pretty confident because I wore my favourite black & white printed dress, a bold blue necklace & a pair of black heels – an outfit that truly reflects my personality & style. I’ve always felt that one of the best ways to feel confident in interviews is to wear something that gives you a bit of a confidence boost. I know that sounds incredibly vain, but it is what it is, we all feel better when we are wearing something that makes us feel fabulous.

Three days ago also was my scoliosis surgery‘s 10th anniversary & I know it’s weird, but I had a little celebration for it with J. After my interview J & I ended up going to Revolver downtown for some delicious coffee (seriously it was amazing) & then over to Tacofino for some super yummy fish tacos & a shockingly delicious cauliflower starter. At dinner we had a little cheers to my 10 years of being healthy & happy and it really got me thinking about how amazing these last ten years have been.
Without this surgery I likely wouldn’t have gotten to do a lot of things that I have ended up really cherishing. I wouldn’t have gone to college or off travelling, I wouldn’t have gotten to meet J, I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the small things like camping, dancing, running – things I’ve so loved doing these last ten years that wouldn’t have been possible without the surgery. It’s strange to think how different my life could have been & how different my quality of life would have been. It can be pretty overwhelming to think about but it all just makes me so grateful for the life I have now.
