Chronicles of one girl's journey to London - from conception to eventual migration.

Thursday, July 5, 2012


So, there I was, preparing to dive into the pile of paperwork that would undoubtedly accompany the Tier 4 Student Visa process. I was even preparing to blog all about it, with tips and advice just like I did with the Tier 5 process. I was ready to get my Masters in London! However, that has now changed.

It slowly dawned on me that I would take on a tremendous amount of debt. So, between the boyfriend and I, we came up with a new plan. I will stay in Toronto for one more year and we will do the long distance thing. I have deferred my admission to Kingston University until 2013 as well.

This way, I can do my masters and return to London without incurring any more debt. Smartest way to do it, I think!

I'm excited because it means I get one more year with my friends, family and the real love of my life, Ben!

Ben is this adorable dog
I'm also sad because I miss London. In fact, I will be there for 10 days from next week (to sort out the clothes and paperwork I left there) and a big part of me feels like I am going back home! All very odd.

Anyway, this will be tough, I know, but so am I! And this means that when I do go back, it will be on the right terms and under the right conditions.
