It has been a long time indeed.
Well, I have good news to share, I am finally going to be heading back to class this week. It’s so relieving that the strike is over, but at the same time, it should have NEVER been allowed to continue for five weeks! FIVE.
The college’s 50th anniversary and this strike makes history being the longest. This is no doubt going to be remembered by myself and half a million students for a while.
Lucky for me, my workload is so light and I don’t have many financial demands, so I should be able to get back on track and get on with my life without a problem. However, I still think I deserve a refund equal to the amount of days I lost.
Since this strike has gone on, I haven’t been writing on here because when I felt like my life was left in limbo, I didn’t have any motivation to write anything, other than how upset I was and the thoughts I was having, which is too personal to share here. I’m so driven to succeed that I hate it when anything gets in the way like a barrier and puts things on hold, but it wasn’t the first time, and it won’t be the last.
I spent my days tweeting constantly with fellow students and parents, and to the government my frustrations. I sent letters too. My only sources of happiness were Lordi, Dragon Age, and I suppose I owe it to Katy Perry as well as her show also played a part in that.
It’s hard to not look at the news when it makes you upset; but you look anyway because you believe that a miracle has occurred and the nightmare is over, when in reality, it’s not.
This strike taught me several things as it went on: to think wisely about who to vote for on the next provincial election, to speak up when I feel like a pawn (I think I got a little carried away), and to know that no matter the situation, it will work out in the end.
Now, I’m going to put the last five weeks behind me and go back to school as if I never left. At the same time, I will get back to writing regularly now that I’m relieved enough to crawl out of my cave.
