Trail of paper

Last night I started my Visa application.

My life is being overcome by paperwork and things to do. I have to go in for my appointment with my supporting documents a week from Monday. Before then I have to go to the bank and get a letter to prove that I have enough money.

I also applied for OSAP (Ontario Student Assistance Program) to get a student loan with slightly less interest and more forgiveness than my student line of credit. For this I need to provide a copy of my SIN (Social Insurance Number) card. I lost my SIN card about 6 years ago, right after I got it. So this means that I have to go and get myself a new SIN card.

I also left my debit card in the ATM last night and have to go get a new one of those. On top of that I have a doctor’s and dentist appointment later this month to get myself all checked out before going over.

This is after the trail of paperwork from Athabasca to Carleton to Newcastle that was earlier this month to sort out my transcripts and acceptance letter.

And these are only small items on the mile long list that is Things to Do Before I have to Leave IN TWO MONTHS!

The hilarious part of my night was this on my visa application:


Um, please define…?

    Who would answer yes?

    Also, that is one of the most convoluted questions ever. “MIGHT indicate that you MAY NOT be considered a person of good character”

    In whose opinion? lol.

    Hahah. I wish my brain wasn’t so fried so I could think of something funny to say about that.

    I’m going crazy with all the stuff I have to do before moving to Hawaii! But at least I don’t need to do the Visa thing. That’s a pain.

    Good luck!

    I lost my SIN card too! I have no idea where. That’s bad, isn’t it?

    Ahhh, so exciting! I can’t believe you leave on TWO MONTHS.
