It may be wise to pleasantly introduce myself. My name is Danita, and at the moment I live with my wonderful grandmother Bella and Toby 'the house-dog' (a Harry Potter reference.) We live a quiet and simple life in a small town called Inuvik. I haven't always lived here, I actually grew up in a smaller town called Aklavik, which is a 20 minute flight from this place and I've been thinking lately how nice it would be to go home . . . My childhood was quite magical growing up in Aklavik and I have only fond memories of that place until the passing of my dad which I now accept was a traumatic experience and I still deal with it today. I am just another child who had to grow up way too fast and I am still in the grieving process of losing someone so close to me. Recovery, my friends and it's a long process . . .
Onto a brighter topic, I am planning a trip to Aklavik in TWO weeks and I am so excited! Aklavik is where I feel most myself and I haven't been feeling like myself in 2 years which is the last time I was home. I will update you on my trip and experience and I guess that is it - my first blog entry. This is where my adventure begins . . .
