Too soon

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

I had class today, handed in my first assignment. And my boss mentioned something about me likely doing some clinical service this year.
I’m still feeling like I’ve not had a vacation yet. It’s all coming too fast. I need a vacation! SIGH.

Moving pains

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

I guess I was expecting this. The relatives I have in the area really aren’t that close, and they live pretty far away, so I didn’t expect them to be very helpful. The friends I have in the area also aren’t that close, and even those who are close enough that they might be able […]

AT&T…

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

Well after a lot of run around, I walked into AT&T again today, and chanced upon an agent who’s worked there for years and actually knows what he’s doing. He managed to get my credit history accessed with my Canadian social insurance number, and approved my phone plan! So I’m set, no deposit. He’s also […]

On a better note…

AT&T turns away good customers

Monday, July 21st, 2008

Right now, I’m just about ready to make a point to entirely avoid any service with that company. I suppose it’s no surprise to some of you that AT&T has terrible customer service. After waiting on hold for 4 consecutive people on their customer service line, I was told that if I went to the […]

Home?

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

I’m tired. I’m ready to go home now.
That’s pretty much how I’m feeling at the moment. Years of planning and preparations. So many stages of applications for absolutely everything. Money, work visa, licensing, school, bank, credit, housing. I’m just so tired of always having to convince people that I’m worth it. Especially coming to a […]

Transitions

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

I’ve been too busy and too internet-less to have had time to post until now. I am sitting at a Starbucks across the street from the hotel I’m staying at, and just paid for a month of hotspot access. Having no unlimited internet was driving me a bit bananas.
It’s funny when you’re at a crossroads […]

Family

Sunday, July 13th, 2008

Last few days has all been about packing my bags. I mentioned to my study partner on the phone how weird it was to be going through a stressful situation without her around. For the past year, she’s been the physical and emotional support for my exam. And now here I am in another stressful […]

Anxiety

Friday, July 11th, 2008

It really hit me today. When I packed up my desktop computer, filled most of my bags, and found my room to be so empty of things that used to fill it. When I made an appointment to meet with someone at work to sign papers, and she said see you next week. I got […]

Relatives

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

In the last few weeks in this city, I’ve been taking every possible moment to spend with friends and family. It’s been hard to juggle all the components of spending time with family, hanging out with friends, packing, arranging paperwork for moving and the new job, and on top of that take care of sudden […]
