Grasslands and Val Marie wants me back.


  1. So is this in conflict with your upcoming stint as a student at Simon Fraser? In other words, are you being forced to make a difficult choice here?
    Just wondering.

  2. No. It's not a conflict of that sort.

    It is nonetheless a conflict; between giving up the job that I have loved more than any other I have ever held, and living for the summer in Regina - potentially my last ever - having a job that offers me more freedom to be with friends and family.

    And most importantly, be me.

    I am choosing to turn down the job offer. But it is a decision that comes with a heavy heart. I know what I am gaining though... or at least, I hope I do.

  3. Sounds like you've thought it through, you know what the pros and cons are, and you are now able to move confidently forward.
    That's all you can ask of yourself, Neal. In the end, you can only do what you believe is right for you.
    I'm sure everything will work out just fine. You are a thoughtful, sensitive, and smart young man. Just believe in yourself, and it will all work out.
