only real Yukoner of the family! Besides that Iím the youngest, the
tallest, the smartest... ok maybe not.
In the summer I
am almost always at home so we will most definitely meet. In summer
break I try to find a job close by or help out at the lodge with
mowing, raking, preparing firewood or renovation projects. There is
not much time left any more for working on some project that I
thought up, which used to be my main pass time in the summer when I
was younger. Anyway, I'm not that much of a stereotypical teenager;
outdoor activities usually take priority over indoor ones especially
when the weather's anything above horrible! Badminton is my
strongest sport and my absolute favourite, followed by volleyball.
Luckily I have my driverís licence for a while now, so I can drive
myself to practices.
In the winter I
am tired; that's really what stands out the most. During the week I
go to school at F.H. Collins Secondary School (Grade 11 now), on the
weekends I tire myself out with sports. I try to go downhill skiing
every weekend no matter the temperature, but if the ski hill closes
there's nothing I can do! So far my coldest ski adventure was a
couple of years back when it was -35 with a wind chill of -45, brrrr!
Also on the weekends I play badminton and volleyball. And in case I
get invited to a party I donít say noÖ
This summer I
started accompanying my dad doing satellite internet installations,
because opportunities to learn something practical are always
welcome. In the winter there isn't much work to do (for me at least,
ha! Ė and then school and programs keep me busy enough), but I'm
proud to call myself the "assistant web designer" even though that's
a bit of an exaggeration. But who wouldn't jump at the opportunity
to tell their parents what they're doing wrong?
Living so far
away from school has it's pros and cons but I think it's well worth
