I’d never been skiing before

Going to college is something I always dreamt about.

But, I didn’t want to go to a local school.

My plan was to attend college as far away from home as possible. Don’t get me wrong. My family is amazing and we are all so close. But, that can also be a hindrance because it’s rare that I get to do something new. Instead, my parents were cautious and always wanted us to be safe. So, going up north for college was my chance to live an adventurous life away from being too sheltered. That first year in college is something that I will never forget. I met lots of new people and tried out many things I couldn’t do living at home. On top of my list of things to do was go skiing that first winter. We booked a cabin in this amazing lodge and went skiing with my new schoolmates. This was my first time using skis and I also got to experience radiant heating. We live by the coast where it rarely gets frigid cold in winter. So, the best we can do is have a heat pump to warm the house on cold winter nights. Otherwise, we always have the heat pump set on cool mode to keep the indoor spaces comfortable. It can get so hot so this is important. However, I never got to experience radiant heating until we stayed in that cabin during that skiing weekend. The radiant heated floors felt amazing that I opted to put a blanket down and sleep on the floor. I was a bit drunk so that’s part of the reason I woke up on the floor.
