My wife Liza and I have been living in Calgary exactly three years now.
We arrived here on this exact date three years ago.
I am still amazed at how much we have achieved and accomplished since then. Here are some of them:
- Just a couple of weeks after arriving, I was able to get a job as an independent contractor for a major aniimation studio, a job I still hold to this day.
- Four months later we were able to afford our first vehicle, a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan, which I recently sold and replaced with a 2008 Honda Civic.
- On July the following year, almost eleven months after arriving, we were able to buy a small townhouse. Previously we were staying with my wife’s sister, to whom we owe a lot for her generosity.
These are just a small portion of a long list of what we were able to make possible here, something that I could not imagine being able to achieve had we were still living in the Philippines. I just had to lay these out what I consider as milestones in our lives not to brag about it, but to show how much can be achieved if you hold on to your dreams.
Okay, I might not be totally honest about the bragging thing, but please allow this shallow person his moment of silent triumph.
Thanks, and a good day to all!
