If you’ve read any blog entries from last summer, you know exactly who I am: the crazy summer student with a lot to say…and I’m back! I just completed a year of Tourism and Hospitality studies at the College of the North Atlantic in St. John’s. I’ve had a great, and extremely educational year. Originally, I had no plans of coming back to Happy Valley-Goose Bay for the summer…but here I am…back for the summer. As soon as I found out that Them Days was hiring I couldn’t resist myself. I contacted Aimee, who contacted Janice and here I am. It’s needless to say that I’m happy to be back.
When coming into Them Days this morning I was greeted by Janice followed by the warmest of hugs from Shirley. It feels like I haven’t left. As I do miss Anna, Abby, Brianna and Aimee, I’m certain that it’s going to be a very eventful, progressive and fun summer with Janice, Shirley and the other summer student who is joining us next week. We’ve already discussed how much is going to be happening in the next 8 weeks and we definitely have our work cut out for us!
I’m planning to be able to write weekly about announcements, progress updates and events that are going on with Them Days and in the community. Today, I’m starting out the summer by attending Expo Labrador. If you see this update before then- come and say hello!
