Au Revoir

After a rough 48 hours of delays, cancelled flights, and more delays, I finally made it to my island in the sun!

I have changed quite a bit in this last year since leaving the island. I left to pursue personal growth in my prairie hometown, to study Creative Communications, working hard to get good grades and become a better writer. All with the hopes of someday achieving success: being happy in a creative and dynamic career.

For those of you unfamiliar with GCM, well, I'll just say that for most of the great people that inhabit the island, Grand Cayman is a place focused on the pursuit of pleasure, not personal growth.

In this year I have been away I have changed drastically whereas the island has not. Sure a few of the restaurants are called by a new name, and there are some new face who have run away from home to la-la-land and pursue the beach life. But all in all, it's the same.

I am able to see it clearly now... this is not the place for me. I want more than this... Yes, the boat parties, sunset sails, island tours, beach walks and slushy cocktails with friends are great, but it is not the life for me.

Time to set off and pursue pleasure for my last 48 hours on-island, before I return home, off to bigger things.

Bye Bye Cayman. I don't think I'll be back. For the great friends I have that remain on-island... let's live it up!

This little treat was created by my Cayman sister, Michelle. Cheers!
