“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” – Hellen Keller
Handful of months prior to immigrating to Canada, I was job-hunting in Canadian web sites and it paid off! Guess what, just one particular week right after my arrival to Toronto on July, and JULY is a keyword, I was known as for my initial interview! You could picture how excited I was. I dressed up and looked as skilled as I could be and ran off the door fired up with enthusiasm.
To my terrific luck, it rained like a hurricane more than my head! Primarily based on my background, I in no way knew it rained in the summer time! And inside couple of minutes, I was entirely SOAKED! I was torn amongst postponing the interview and risking losing the job and displaying up like a walking avalanche! Regrettably, I went for the second selection as I figured that probably the interviewers would be impressed by my determination. To my dismay, the so-cold interview turned out to be a scam in disguise! Immediately after placing up with an ultra boring presentation offered by a merciless freak, who was entirely inconsiderate to the reality that I was shivering!, I was told that I have to spend a load of money to get instruction in a field entirely irrelevant to my specialization! So, I left but ahead of I go, I created confident to take benefit of my flooding garments, sparing no work to sit on every single chair and ruin their rugs as my way of saying:”thanks for wasting my time!” As well terrible it wasn't a “Wet T-shirt Contest!” Welcome to Canada!
On my way out, I stumbled upon a lady hunting at me with total amazement! My expanding aggravation coupled with utter exhaustion gave me every single cause to slap her in the face! But for some mysterious cause, I decided to take the “good” route. Seeking her straight in the eyes and with an ear-to-ear smile I stated: “I guess I chose the incorrect day to commence sky diving!” The lady was on the floor giggling. I could not assume of a greater way to finish the day!
As an unfortunate consequence of this incident, I was diagnosed with “Summer time Hurricanes Worry Syndrome!” In other words, I felt compelled to carry an umbrella anytime I decided to take a look at a neighbor in the identical creating. You in no way know, it may possibly rain in the hallway… Duh!
And hey, did I inform you that I immigrated to Canada all alone? And nope, I did not have any relatives there! Astonished? Do not be. Welcome to bizzaro globe… I am the CEO!
If you assume I am entirely nuts, assume once again! It is the dangers and the possibilities that we take that make life worth living. All pioneers and extraordinary folks created it this far for the reason that they managed to break absolutely free from the ordinary. Effectively, I aspire to turn out to be one particular of them.
That is why, I did not enable this minor setback to stand in my way. To me, it was a reality verify and a warning signal saying:”Heba, get genuine! The road is not paved with roses.” So, from day one particular I discovered to smile at the face of obstacles and turn them into possibilities which created my Canadian encounter so rewarding and enjoyable.
Asking yourself what occurred subsequent, let's just say… I like to retain the suspense alive! Remain tuned for the upcoming episode of “Your 'Fun Mentor' Says Hello!” Till we meet once again, have a blast of a day!
