Kirstyn's Korner: Where'd September go?

September has been full of surprises for me this year! Usually it's a slow month, but now I'm wondering where it went! Between a new school, having family get togethers, starting this column and basically just changing my whole lifestyle around I gue

September has been full of surprises for me this year! Usually it's a slow month, but now I'm wondering where it went! Between a new school, having family get togethers, starting this column and basically just changing my whole lifestyle around I guess I didn't pay attention to September whatsoever.

Speaking of surprises, I got the most unexpected surprise ever on the weekend. An early birthday present. Many people for their 16th birthday want a car or something along those lines, but nope, not me. I have no use for one yet. Instead I got an amazing camera! For someone who hopes to be a photographer for her profession this was the perfect gift! Apparently my mom was going to save it for my birthday in November, but lately I've been having some camera troubles for work so now here I go and have my own brand new one to use! Thank you mom!

It's been a different year this year in more ways than one. I'm usually the girl who plays volleyball for school and club and attends camps, but this year is different. I decided to take the season off this year. So far, it's a huge change, but nothing that I can't live with. I'm enjoying being able to not be so on the go all the time and I really can't complain, but I did miss it. Until this brilliant idea hit me! I still want to stay active and I still enjoy volleyball so why not still be involed? So off I went, back to Bert Bowes where my volleyball skills pretty much began and asked Mr. Bennett if would be able to assist him in coaching. Good news! I was allowed. The girls have their first tournament in Chetwynd this weekend! Good luck girls, I'll be cheering for you from here!

I've finally found some balance. It's not too busy, but I'm still involved with something I love. Now to find a club at my own school, but I haven't heard about any. Then again, school did just start. I'll give it some time. There's no rush! Especially not this week. I have my two of my best friends birthdays this week and I have no idea what to get them. Both of their sweet sixteens, but ones a boy and ones a girl so sharing ideas is completely out of the question! An idea better hit me in the head soon, or else I'll be in trouble!

If I thought September went by fast when I wasn't doing much, I can barely imagine how it'll be when I am busy. Even if it get's hectic that's life and I'm in.
