As I started to look for a job just before I graduated from university, hubby and I discussed what we were looking for in a city. I applied for jobs all over the Province and I was offered a few jobs but the only permanent position was in the city we now live. We didn't know much about the city but, what we did know is that the area is home to two major universities, and a college. It is also the home to Research In Motion the creator of Blackberry, and there is a large farming community in these parts. So this is the city we now call home.
The longer we live here the more adventures we embark on. Today I want to share a recent crazy adventure, one I never ever EVER expected to experience in my wildest dreams. A group of friends invited us to a BBQ at their family farm we were so excited to go and just hang out. When we heard more about the details there was also going to be a skeet shoot ... skeet shooting? I had no idea what that was all about. Hubby told me a few details and although I thought it was interesting I didn't really get a full grasp of the event until we got there. I stood back and watched for a bit and then decided that I wanted to try it once....
I was so nervous, I had NEVER shot a gun before, luckily most people who attended this shindig had, so I had lots of teachers. A few friends of mine were able to show me a few things about, well, you know, safety! Then they gave me a few tips and sent me off shooting. Don't worry no animals were hurt during this event, we were shooting at clay disks. Did you know people do this as a sport, I think its even in the olympics. Who knew?!?!?
So I fired my first shot....BOOM! Oh man was it fun, I had no idea! I didn't have any intentions of shooting more then once but I kinda enjoyed it.... so I fired off a few more shots.
The skeet shoot part of the afternoon was definitely out of my 'comfort zone' but the moral of the story is, sometimes we have to let go of control, try something new and have a little fun!
