I've begun to make plans to go back overseas for a proper stay. It'd help if I'd worked out a budget for it all of course, but I'm planning on leaving in August and I'm not exactly psychic. I'm playing around though with a 12k figure, which I think isn't too unreasonable. That however isn't factoring in things I'll want like a laptop, or anything else I'll need.
I'll very likely be looking for a place to live in Vancouver, but before I get there I want to stop over and visit some of the many friends I have in Atlanta, Texas, California, Ohio, a couple places in Ontario (y r u so big Ontario? y??), and several other places I want visit just to see while I'm passing though. Where I end up though will depend on the sort of visa I end up getting. I pretty much have a reliable option of getting a 1 year working visa, which doesn't need anything special to obtain, but one year is hardly worth getting settled over there with. A temporary residence is what I'd like the most, but I need a job over there lined up before I can apply, and I'm no sure where to begin with that.
On Monday I call the embassy, and hopefully that will give me some facts to work with. Whatever happens I'm leaving in August, so thats my deadline to get all my shit together.
