In 1 month.....
It's been 1 month since we arrived in Regina. Our plan was to just take it easy and establish ourselves at a slow pace. Our parents were nice enough to let us live in the basement suite at home. We are expecting to set up camp here for 6 months or so.
Seems that no matter where I am I just can't slow down!
We have done something EVERYDAY!
All our paperwork for permanent resident cards, licences, bank accounts, credit cards, health cards, library cards is done and taken care of.
Sung Hyun has attended resume writing & Canadian workplace culture classes.
Sung Hyun meets with a private English teacher 2 times a week.
I've purchased a computer.
We bought our first car.
I lucked out by getting an excellent job right away.
The first week we arrived, after a trip to the mini Korean super market, I managed to score 3 tutoring gigs -- an extra 9 hours of work each week.
And just yesterday Sung Hyun accepted a union position for a metal company doing some shop work/ metal cutting. His first day is Monday!
So it looks like everything is falling into place quite nicely.......except maybe the extra pounds around my waistline that I've managed to accumulate this past month.
