This is it. Life as I know it could be changing as a result of tomorrow…
I have an interview for the Nunavut job. I don’t think I’ve ever been more nervous in my life about anything…well…perhaps 3 AM the day of my wedding as Ian and I sat up in bed and went through our wedding after party playlist, and mused about how we hoped things would end up going that day. With the most minor of hitches, everything turned out pretty well.
I can only hope tomorrow goes so well. For me, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. What an incredible experience to pick up our lives and transplant them to the Arctic. Immerse ourselves in a different culture. Experience summers with no humidity!
But most of all, to be a part of something bigger than myself. Nunavut turned ten years old this year as a Canadian territory. It’s still in its childhood…and I have a chance to be a part of that growth and development. A chance to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people. Perhaps I am being a little too idealistic…but maybe not. Time will tell.
And it all hinges on surviving through to tomorrow.
