My Reentry

Welcome to the new Bond's Blog: Reentry. (Or Re-entry, depending who you talk to.)

Reentry into Life, after traveling for two years. Finding your footing. Reacquainting with old friends. Meeting new friends. Finding work. Getting a cell phone. Seeing what's changed. Seeing what's stayed the same. Finding a place to live. Getting a car. Dealing with peoples 2-year-old preconceptions about you. Realizing you've changed. Realizing everyone else has changed. Dealing with these changes without getting overwhelmed...

Explaining to everyone you meet what you have been doing for the last two years. Over and over and over again...

This is the focus of the blog for the next few months - until I feel I have fully reentered my new life here in Vancouver.

...Hopefully with a more peaceful and happier result than that in the picture above of a bolide impacting on Earth. Let's hope my life isn't completely wiped out as the dinosaurs were at the K-T boundary event...

Thanks Raptor, good to be here. I'll pop over and take a look at the fossil fact.

Thank you Che-mie! I'll check out your blog too. I'm sure it's great too.

Thanks Jewels! Change IS inevitable, you are right. Like the course of a river, the amount of snowfall from year to year, and hey evolution! Can't stop change... There's a new Timmys in Middle Lonsdale! Where did that come from?!?! But I'm not complaining...
