Independence Day

It's 3 o'clock and I'm packing the last of my things into a box. My last day at work. Its funny what you can collect at your desk in 8 years. 3 ceramic angels, some jesus pencil toppers, an empty plant pot, cowboy hat, Risk boardgame, space aged ant farm, pink nail polish.

Eight years here, helping to grow a business (a business whose business it is to help grow other businesses, in fact). I've decided to take some time now to grow myself.

What that entails, time will tell. What I do know is that I'll be pursuing an MBA at INSEAD. My program starts in August and I've elected to spend the first two periods in Singapore. After that, I plan to head over to France to finish the program. There will be plenty more on that topic to come. Now that I have time to blog more frequently and turn my attention to it.

But first, I'll be taking some time off. And, when I say 'taking the month off', that means a few weeks of catching up on lost time with my spouse and family, intensive french classes, preparing our house for a substantial renovation, a triathlon, and maybe a bit of yoga.

First things first, though. A 7 day mountain bike race. BC bike race. Starts on Sunday. What better way to celebrate my new freedom than with a week of biking and sleeping outdoors with my good friends.

Space age ant farm?! Does it come with space age ants...?

Good for you, Tori. What a brave and adventurous step you've taken. Meet you sometime soon at a French vineyard....
