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.

Wicked Truth

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.
