Everything happens for a reason/Ask and you shall receive/Time to work on my French

So remember when I posted about the great job I applied for?

*cough cough* it’s the post right below *cough cough*

Well I finally heard back about it and the “company” is deciding to “reevaluate the structure of their company”and they are putting the hiring of that position “on hold right now” but they will “keep my resume on file because they really like me” and “hopefully something will come open in the future”.

Sorry for all the “ “s but seriously WTF? Why go thru the hiring process and post their ad and waste my time and theirs if they arent even sure if they are hiring for the job??

Anyhoo… moving on.

(I have applied for a few other great jobs but I’m not gonna jynx them by mentioning them on here)

In other news… my Work BFF/outside of work BFF is getting married in less than 2 weeks in Montreal. Her and her finace are flippin-full-of-awesome-sauce and I love them to bits! I couldn’t go to their wedding because of a few factors:

1 – Money – a flight to Montreal from Calgary is running around $700 – ouch.

2 – Time off work – we work together and she is gone for 2 weeks (obvs to get married) . I am supposed to cover her and her to cover me when one is on vacation, there was no way I was getting time off to go. Not even for a day… my work is pretty shitty strict about that.

3 – A place to stay – I don’t know anyone in Montreal so I would have to pay for a hotel … by myself… on top of the cost of my flight, and a wedding gift, and food, and shopping/spending money.

So I had to tell her that I couldn’t come to their wedding and my heart was broken. I have spent pretty much this entire year hanging out with the 2 of them and I just couldn’t imagine not being there but sadly my wallet couldn’t fathom paying over $1000 for one weekend.

Well just when I thought all hope was lost all the Mich-cant-go-on-vacation-factors disappeared!! A “new” girl at work will be covering for Work BFF while she is gone, time off work… CHECK! Another one of our kick-ass friends is going to the wedding and works for an airline and can hook us up with buddy passes, cheaper flight… CHECK! And we are getting a great deal on a hotel split between 3 people, place to stay… CHECK!

Ladies and Gents… Mich is going to Montreal!!!

Time to brush up on my French…

Le Poisson Le Poisson…

How exciting! :) Things have a way of working out, right?

So I recently took a job that will require me to travel from time to time. I'm super excited about it. Especially since this means my travels will take me to Canada! Specifically it may take me to Calgary and Quebec. Sooooo if I end up in Calgary one of these days, I'm hoping I have you to show me around where the locals hang out! :)
