Some people have been asking me why I don't update this blog often... the reason is because I want to keep this blog's focus on my experience in Sweden. Sorry to everybody who wanted every single personal details of my life :)
Yup, only 24 more days to go now,... can you imagine how tiring it is to see everybody asking me the same question over and over, "Are you excited to go to Sweden?"... most of the time I just try to be nice and smile while nodding but what I am thinking is -- Seriously, is there someone out there who actually thinks that there is a slight remote chance that I could NOT be excited to go to Sweden for a whole damn year?... Is there someone out there who actually thinks I will say 'no' or 'not really' to that damn question? :) hehe... I'm typing this because there was someone (I prefer to keep this person's name anonymous) that asked me the exact words "Are you excited to go to Sweden?" on three different times, on three CONSECUTIVE days!!... *sigh* I guess that person is either more excited than I am or excited that I'm leaving for some reason :p naah, that person's just probably, for the lack of a better word, ignorant.
Yeah, I know what you all are thinking, I probably should as well wear a sign in front of me saying "Yes" and just point at it the next time.
After some research, Welfare (now called OntarioWorks) is out of the question, ODSP - forget it cuz the application process takes 90 days or so... and yeah, I only have 24 days left and they require an interview at the end of the application process so. Employment Insurance (EI) is still a possiblity but I cannot apply until I am actually not working which will be on August 12th (my last day working is on the 11th).
Hmm,... I just bought a pair of in-line skates.... Rollerblade's Aero 7 ... I was contemplating to bring a bicycle to Sweden but it would be a hassle thru airports and I figured it was time to brush up my skating skills :) The dorm will be few kilometers from the school so I hope to put those skates in good use :)
One last thing, I tried to mess around with the template but then one thing got screwed up, whenever I fixed one thing the other thing just got screwed up so I just decided to reset my template into its original state. I will be adding some links of friend's blogs and some links about Sweden for your viewing pleasure :)
