SPAIN?! I am incredibly jealous. I really want to travel around Europe!
I’m going to be working as the Facility Sales Supervisor at the Toronto Botanical Gardens. The name sounds super fancy and high up which is nice but really, I’m not supervising anyone but myself lol.
Please blog about your travels! I’d love to see pictures and see what you’ve been up to!
This feels just like my sleepovers in high school minus the video games and Evil Dead movies. Not to mention we’re missing a bunch of people like Kit!
I’ll be arriving home this coming Wednesday for all you folks at home. You know what that means? I can finally go to Pride this year!
Actually a British guy called me last week in regards to my resume I posted online and asked if I would do any private English tutoring. I asked if it was for his kids but he explained that he was just back visiting family for the summer and that he was looking for a tutor for his aunt’s kids. I politely declined this job however because I don’t have any previous tutoring experience.
The next morning, I received a text message from the same guy asking me if I had Facebook but I chose not to reply.
Now tonight when I was out with my friend, I received a phone call from an unknown number so I answered it. It turned out to be the SAME guy and he was asking if I was available to meet him for a drink even after I said I was currently with friends. I declined and quickly hung up the phone.
Seriously Hong Kong, what are you throwing at me this year?
As mentioned in my previous post, I was offered a full-time at the Toronto Botanical Gardens back home in Toronto. This threw me for a loop because my plans for the next 6 months involved working in Hong Kong before meeting my good friend Kit in the Philippines for 2 months.
However, I’ve decided to take the position at the TBG because I can’t turn down the prospect of full time work in the industry I want to be in. A steady income helps too!
Am I disappointed that my Asia adventures will be cut short? Well, perhaps a little bit. That doesn’t mean I can’t save up money and continue to travel in the future though.
I think the part that I am most apprehensive about is that I’ll be working a full-time career oriented job at the age of 19 and that seems a bit daunting to me. However, a friend pointed out last night that you’re never to young to work, gain experience, and earn money. So I’m going to keep my head up and do my best!
I’m happy as long as I keep moving forward and I’m not just “settling”. I think I’m accomplishing that.
Before I left to come to Hong Kong, I was talking to my supervisor and had told her that I was leaving to come here because I couldn’t find full time work in Toronto. I just found out that she resigned tonight.
Good timing eh?
For instance, I got into the elevator today and meant to hit the button to close the doors. Instead I mashed on the button to take me to the 24th floor when I wanted to go to the lobby.
