After a long term at Royal Roads University in Canada, with a lot of homework, projects and more, I finally got a break for 4 months. I got to be in town for a couple of weeks and after that i went back to México. I was really happy, because I was finally with my family, which I miss a lot while in Canada. My siblings have grown so much, and I also met with my best friends, everyone had many stories to tell, for example me. I have been in Canada for a year now, coming to Victoria without knowing anyone in here, but soon I have made really good friends at RRU, I also helped a lot in the International Study Centre, with future orientations and participated in many activities. Even though I did go back to México on December, it was really nice to visit it again and for a longer period of time.
At the beginning of the summer I met with friends, went to have breakfast and a coffee, ending the day with a nice dinner with my dad and uncle. Later I went to the beach with some friends, which was really nice and hot, I did miss the hot in México. The beach and my friends were wonderful. After a few months I keep meeting my friends once every 2 or 3 weeks, which was pretty nice.
This summer besides having some fun meeting with friends and family, I was working. I worked on my family business as a General Manager in the family business, which was really good since it gave me a lot of experience. Besides getting experience, i got more things to add to my professional curriculum, which will help me a lot after graduating from University in Canada. In this work I learned how to manage people, money, and taking care of every single thing in the business. I learned to be more patient with people, since I had to watch over the employees and make sure they are doing their work in the right way. I also learned that since I am in the BBA Sustainability and International Business program, it will have made me get real life practice and an overall idea of what I will be learning and polishing in my university time.
Another thing I got to do when going back to México is that I got my dental work done, since is cheaper in México and I had the time to do it. Dental work in Canada is quite expensive, but if you think it will be worth it and you needs a treatment, it is a really good place to do it, since Canada has really good technology.
My summer was great, I don’t regret anything from it, and now that I had a nice time off, I am ready to go back to school, see my friends, make new friends, and enjoy University. Are you ready to start classes?
