VISA

Just an update – My visa was accepted yesterday 😀
Well not a visa.. I don’t need a visa to be in Denmark but it’s a ‘temporary residence permit’ or something like that 😉
Either way.. I am now legal from October 1 2011 – October 2 2012.

EEEEEEEEEEK! 😀

Officially legit!

We’re in single digits until departure, people! 😀

Ready to Leave Canada… now!

Yesterday was possibly the worst day of my life in yearssssss!
Everything that could go wrong did go wrong.
And I got quite an earful of  yelling throughout the entire day!

1. I checked my email first thing in the morning and had an email from the Danish consulate, subject line reading “Regarding your application for Denmark”
So I was ecstatic thinking my visa had been accepted! But – turns out I needed an extra 1000 bucks in my account OR a return ticket. So since I’m not really sure when I’m coming back, my mum spotted me the 1000 dollars. I’m not using any of the money mum has put in my account, it’s just for paperwork mainly. And if I get into trouble 😉
Then I also had to send in some extra information about my travel insurance to prove I was covered for everything I needed.
So I was calm about it and like OK so I just need to scan these suckers and send them in.
Then I told my mum about it. And the day just went downhill from there.
Everything we did, she would be so stressed over and get so angry.
LOVE MY LIFE right?

2. We had to go to the bank to pay bills (including my visa….) and to transfer the money needed to my travel account. So mum wasn’t happy about paying my visa – yes this i understand! But then we had to make an appointment with an accountant to transfer the money so had to leave again and come back.

3. We came home and our cell phone bill was in the mail……….
IT DOUBLED!!!
It charged me for all calls made in August to a friend who was on my my5 since December 26th! (Yes I know this for a fact 😉 ) Anyways, the mobile company tried to tell me that I never added him until September first and offered to remove all charges from September and on… There were no charges in September….
So I got yelled at for this as well.

4. We were late for our bank appointment because my grandpa was late coming over to help us set up some things. Then was having to wait 24 hours for the money transfer.

5. Mum made a cake and it didnt turn out well.

But finally my mum started to chill a bit and the evening was calm.
Then I texted my friend saying I wanted to talk to him.
So he called finally and I thought we were having a good conversation and he knew how bad my day had gotten yet he then randomly decided that it was a good opportunity to start yelling at me and insulting me about things he thought I was being stupid about.
Long story short I took him off my facebook because that seemed to make things better with us before blah blah <insert long personal story here>
So anyways, his theory was it was best to have one bad day so just threw it in there.
It was crappy because I thought we were having a good talk at first.
He’s mainly just angry that I’m leaving for a year…

So with all this stuff going on I just felt so ready to board a plane last night.

But alas.. 11 more days 😉

Good news however ….

TODAY IS SO MUCH BETTER 😀

And my money was transfered to my account this morning instead of at 4pm so I have already emailed the proof to the Danish Embassy!
Lets just pray that I get accepted… and soon!
Since I don’t have a return ticket – I may get rejected at the airport without a visa.
So I figure I will just print off emails I have from the Embassy and Consulate as proof saying I should get it in another 4 weeks 🙂

11 more days my lovelies 🙂

Ultimately 2 weeks until I leave!

So many things are going on lately and I have to start packing soon!
Originally I was going to pack on the one month mark but now halfway gone and I still haven’t packed!
Is that a bad thing or….?
I don’t have much to really update on.
I still haven’t been approved with my Visa…
So I’m nervous about that.
I promise I’ll have more to talk about in about 3 weeks time!

Countdown is… ON!

So yesterday was officially on month until I leave Canada! And at this time in one month (!2:16AM Danish Time) I will be sleeping in my new home 🙂 🙂
The family I will be staying with has just gotten new fish today which excites me :)!
And they have ordered me a bed AND one for my mum when she visits! Um. Can you believe this?
I have found such caring and hospitable people! It helps me get even more excited! 🙂

My mum has asked about following my tumblr but she doesn’t even know what tumblr is! hahaha.
She just wants to learn about all of my experiences. But I’ll end up telling her everything anyways.
Plus what happens if I want to talk about something intimate. There’d be no privacy.
Well obviously no privacy since this IS the internet. But I’d rather my mother not learn about if I have a beer or something.
She hates me even having a sip of alcohol. And yes, I am legal 😉
Plus if we get in a fight and I want to vent?
I don’t need her reading everything, I’ll need to filter for her 🙂

Anyways, so excited, I wish I was leaving tonight !! 😀
