It looks like the doctor will be happy when he sees me next. I have a very small window of time between my doctor visit and my deadline to postpone my flight. Fingers crossed, I’ll be going to Mauritius on Friday. I haven’t been home in two years and it’s starting to feel like a very long time. Toronto is my new “home”, where I belong and feel most comfortable; but Mauritius is where most of my family stays and where I have the most incredibly happy memories.
I look forward to seeing some of my friends. I’ve known many of them for more than a decade now. Not a lot of people remain friends for such a long time. I feel so lucky to have maintained such great friendships. When I was young, my mom used to say “forgive because everyone makes mistakes” and I did. It was hard at first but I just hoped that one day it would prove worthwhile. I’m so glad I was able to do so. It’s not common for ex-bf/gf to be friends, even less crushes. It’s funny to look back on how things wouldn’t work out then. It’s even weirder that we’re still friends now.
Anyway, there is still a slight chance that the doctor might not let me go just yet, but I really hope I can leave on Friday. After two years of struggling with health, work and studies, I think I’ve earned myself a vacation 🙂
