My year in books (2018)

Can you believe its the middle of January and here I am with no new year resolutions in sight (I’m working on it)! The one resolution I do have, similar to that of last year – is to read more.

This is basically a document that allows you to work and live in Canada for up to 2 years. ** I’ll either create a video or a post on here with more information on how to apply for the IEC Visa** After around an hour of stressing & fighting back the tears, after being told by the immigration officer that I wouldn’t be able…
