Good to be back home
But home can be anywhere you’re welcomed
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.
Students recently returned to the University of King’s College after a month-long winter break.
