It has been a while since the excitement started for my potential move to Canada.
Good news is all my paperwork went through and my visa/work permit papers were completed/granted!
So what have I been up to?
I left my IT job as suggested in my previous post and I worked in refrigeration…. for a whole 3 weeks!
So yeah, it did not last long.
I left and went on a holiday to Tenerife for a week….
Then I came home… and took off the next day to Amsterdam for the weekend…. (Yes that is me on the letter ‘S’)
Then I came home for a week, before taking a road trip to Bruges….
Upon my return, boredom and post trip blues hit home hard.
Within 1 day my boredom led me to look online at contract roles for IT support – 1 interesting advert led to a interview the next day and within a week I was hired and working!
I have a 3 month contract (1 month down at time of this post!) supporting the IT systems for a international company that quarries for cement and asphalt – Not exactly “wolf of wall street” huh.
I finish my position on 2nd of June, so I only have a couple months to see through.
During the months since starting this blog i have had emotional ups and downs about the idea of leaving home for Canada but last Friday i returned home from work… AND BOOKED MY ONE WAY FLIGHT!
Plan of action now?
1 – Finish contract role
2 – Take the month of June to catch up with all friends/family (Whilst most importantly being around for my 28th Birthday)
3 – Get my Sh*t together for the move.
4 – Board the plane on 5th July and see how things go?
….. To be continued.
