It's August 15th, 2018!
I read a study a while ago about how a lot of people who've lived outside their country for a long time feel like they have different personalities they switch between, and boy did I relate. There's a whole world between the person I was when I first moved out of France and the person I am now, and it's definitely due to more than just growing up. It's been a tough one figuring out who UK Val was going to be and where she was going to fit, but she's getting there.
So it's August 15th, 2018, and 10 years ago today I took a plane for the first time to move from France to Canada, looking for myself. Ended up leaving a piece of my heart on the corner of McGill and Cathcart instead. What a journey it's been. Happy birthday me!
