Second Chance

Last week, I got a letter from the embassy, and I got denied. It was disheartening at first but when I read the letter, it wasn't bad that all. Sought help to someone's knowledgable about it, and it took us around 3 days to finish the online application. However, they have a new immigration requirement. I need to submit the biometrics in either Manila or Cebu. No Davao. Of course, I chose Cebu since it's nearer. It was my first time to fly in and fly out on a city on the same day! Crazy, right? But anyway, they are now processing my visa and hopefully this time, I've provided the documents they needed. Gosh, I can't think of other reasons why they won't grant me a visitor's visa. As the cliche goes, there's always a first time. It was truly heartbreaking, but I have no choice but to move on. I know I spent 7k from my first application. There were regrets, but there's no point of crying over spilled milk. I can always bring back the money I spent, but I can't just afford to throw away my one and only chance to work and live in Toronto.

C'mon, universe! Let's do this!

Busy Bee

I've been preoccupied with a lot of stuff lately - my upcoming interview and sim exam in Toronto, the big day, and a whole lot more. But this is still good. Keeps my head busy. I wanted to buy the journal from Everyday Explorers 'coz it's cute. Plus it is color teal, my favorite. But, the stingy in me doesn't want to spend Php 980. But, but, but. Acckkk. I've already claimed my travel organizer from Starbucks, and I've already started writing it. But meh.

Yesterday, my mate in Toronto told me that the training manager and the tower manager already got my CV/resume and cover letter. He had spoken highly about me, so I'm guessing they have high expectations for me. Gah, I don't feel any pressure right now. At least, I am super motivated to work harder and to study smarter. I still have less than six weeks before my trip. Yaaaayyyy. Gonna be my first super long-haul flight. Can't imagine myself flying for 17 hrs straight. I am praying that I won't have seatmates. I guess the trick worked, and I have proven it to myself. Lol.

Feliz Año Nuevo

Obligatory new year post. Anyway, just a quick update how my new year went.

I spent the new year's eve at the office, which was great coz it's my first time lol. Well, at least I get to rest for three and a half days before I start my shift again this Friday afternoon. 2018 was not really a rollercoaster ride for me. It was rather a steady road trip with a few speed bumps. This year, I get to appreciate my friends, especially the ones who were with me in good times and in bad times. Thank you so much. I can't imagine my life without you guys. I know I always spend my time alone at the restaurants, coffee shops, and cinema, but when I needed help, you were always there for me. To all my haters out there who love to talk behind my back - I won't change. As long as I'm doing good and not offensive, we're all good. Also, I don't give a flying fuck about y'all. Lol. Oops, pardon my French.

I am planning something. I won't spill the details because I might get jinxed, but I am hoping that everything will be worth it until the end. 2019 is going to an amazing year for me, I can sense that. If 2018 was about going with the flow, then 2019 will be about taking the leap of faith. I think everything's falling into places.
