Here lies the unsolicited advice from a woman trapped in Vancouver, Canada

Things did not work out exactly as I planned and there was some inconveniences involved, but on the other hand I had a chance to explore a city I probably would have never visited otherwise on someone else's dime. I also made friendships that would not have existed without this inconvenience. I'm not saying it's easy shifting perspective and finding or flat out making opportunities for yourself but it is definitely worth it.
