Good to be back home

But home can be any­where you’re wel­comed

Cape Breton Post - - WEEKEND - Jakob Postle­waite Jakob Postle­waite plans on a ca­reer in jour­nal­ism af­ter univer­sity.

Af­ter a month long ex­o­dus from King’s, com­ing back here is very much like com­ing back to Cape Bre­ton.

Things are the same, yet dif­fer­ent. Peo­ple have changed so much since last see­ing them and fall­ing back into the rou­tine of the life takes some ad­just­ing.

Be­ing back in Syd­ney brought back feel­ings that I hadn’t felt since I left. Nos­tal­gia is def­i­nitely the feel­ing I got driv­ing by my old schools, walk­ing down Char­lotte St., vis­it­ing old friends, and eat­ing at my favourite res­tau­rants. It was good to be back, for a time.

Al­though Cape Bre­ton will al­ways be my home, I have found a new one here in Hal­i­fax. I con­sider King’s to be home as well. Re­turn­ing here for my next se­mes­ter has made me re­al­ize that I missed this place just as much as I missed Cape Bre­ton.

I have come to know that home is where your fam­ily is. While I miss my fam­ily back home very much, I am happy to say that I have found a new fam­ily here at King’s. While most of us come from many dif­fer­ent places (some fur­ther than oth­ers) it is great that we have found one an­other and help each other get through the tough task of be­ing away from home for the first time. I know that this se­mes­ter will help us reaf­firm our love for both our old and new homes and bring many more ad­ven­tures for us to par­take in.

I am happy to be back here at King’s and ready to re­turn to my jour­nal­ism stud­ies for this se­mes­ter. I do not know what the fu­ture has in store for us, but I know that if we stay united and work to­gether we will be able to ac­com­plish any­thing we set our minds to and give our old homes a good name through our ac­tions and ac­com­plish­ments.

As many of you are aware, the Cape Bre­ton Com­mu­nity Post has ended. I am one of the colum­nists mak­ing the move to the main pa­per and I en­cour­age my read­ers and all read­ers of the com­mu­nity post to go to the web­site and main post for more col­umns and up­dates. To find my col­umn as well as oth­ers, go to www.cb­post.com to stay up to date. It has been an hon­our and a plea­sure to be a part of The Com­mu­nity Post and I hope to con­tinue writ­ing with the main pa­per in the fu­ture.
