hello from the mildly chilly Calgary. so far we’ve been having bouts of rain showers every now and then. but i’m just glad we get sunshine on most days, especially last weekend. we were able to bask in +20°C, which was definitely a shorts and flipflops weather.
also, i’ve been working casual (on-call basis) in my previous job as a unit clerk. they were kind enough to give me my job back even though i was gone for almost a year. it really is nice to be back. when i’m not at work, i’d be out shopping and hanging out with friends and family or stay cozy at home doing the usual house chores which don’t seem to feel like chores anymore.
oh. on a completely unrelated note,
we got a schedule for the Canadian Citizenship exam this May 17th, after we pass and have the oath-taking, my Filipino citizenship will automatically be revoked.
that’s all peaches and gravy but i still have to be back in the Philippines for my second year of school. since i will be a full-pledged Canadian, i won’t be able to use my Philippine passport for travel and if ever i will be able to obtain my Canadian passport, I will only be allowed to stay in the Philippines for 2 months.
so unless i fly to Vancouver to get a dual citizenship and reclaim my Filipino citizenship before my flight on June 11th, it’ll be a problem going back and forth to both countries and i wont be able to continue my studies in the Philippines without paying outrageously expensive foreign student fees. XD
so yeah, i don’t know. i’m just hoping everything will work out eventually. right now, the best thing to do is to kick back, relax and soldier on.
i’ll be sending out some postcards soon. you can inbox me your address if you’d like for me to send you some love (non-eligible for friends/family residing in Calgary). :)
