I'm not going to Canada

I'm super sad to say this, but I'm deferring a year at UNB.

It is a combination of real worry about financials for the full academic year and visa issues. I found when I went up last week and talked with immigration, there was a high probability that they would only approve my visa for a single year. There was no way I could come up with the required financial support Canada requires to have your visa approved a second time while a student. With the loonie going up and down so much, I was also really worried I would not be able to take care of myself for the whole academic year just in case I couldn't find a job.

After talking it out with several friends, I'm going to go live with Aspen for a while and hopefully go again next fall after saving up some more money. It's not what I prefer, but it is the better answer at the end of the day.

I want to say thank you to everyone that has been so supportive of me as I've slowly freaked out though this whole process.

To everyone that gave to the fundraiser, I can't give money directly back to you due to the way YouCares works. HOWEVER, I have all the money in my savings account, so I can give that back without a problem. Please just let me know how you want me to send it to you, if you see this: my email is wickedtrue [at] gmail. I'll go through and pick out the emails the fundraiser gave me and email everyone to let them know as well what is going on.

Love you, dude. You are taking care of yourself, and only good things can come from that.

I'm sorry your plans got derailed, but hopefully it just makes for a better Canadia experience down the road. <3

Hard decisions are even shittier when you know they're the right thing to do and they STILL suck. ♥♥♥

You'll get there. You're being sensible and wise about this, and it sucks but you're definitely gonna make it.

Sending you all the love. xxxxx

I'm a southern girl making my way through Yankeeland with a history degree and an artist's soul. I'm a geek and a dork, and I'm okay with that.

Sometimes, I even wear pants when blogging.
