Legal matters

Such a grand legislative building. Speaking of legal matters, my case with the Ministry of Labour is coming to the days of getting a conclusion. It’s been almost a year long battle getting compensation from the last company I worked for. I hate them with a passion for overworking me and treating me like trash and telling me I’m not qualified. DSC04405I’ve demanded $2500 for a settlement (really not that much for a franchise to pay me out) but they refused. Doesn’t matter to me since I’m not after money, I’m chasing after justice. DSC04403

Last year in September to November I really had no life. I worked from 8:00am to 7:30pm when I went home and ate dinner after dinner I would be on my laptop finishing up work until 10pm when I had to sleep again (Mind you this was all for some measly salary income…I wasn’t paid hourly…so that’s how they abused the work hours out of me). I’m so glad I’m not in that situation anymore.

The road less travelled

Hello— it’s been a while. I haven’t really done much over the summer. I live in a very bland place with very bland food. It’s incredibly different from the suburban lifestyle I’m used to and the diversity and vibrancy of Toronto that I was once part of. DSC04418Even the blandest places have it’s beauty and hidden gems. Though I may only see one other car every hour on the road. I appreciate the few people that are out here. Passing drivers always wave at each other and are ready to assist and help a stranger in need. DSC04407I wish I could climb this and go through the tunnels inside that natural phenomenon. But I don’t have my Boy here to give me a boost with the climbing. DSC04415For those of you that know me, I’m a pretty competent climber and I’ve done quite a number of solo hikes back in Ontario but this one is a no go because some of the spots are very crumbly. IMG_5306

Saskatoon Pie anyone? I want to bring a few pies back for my family when I go home for a visit in October for Thanksgiving.

Candy Cane Park

The most Canadian play slide on earth. DSC04392

This is the candy cane tree. I rename it the Dr. Suess tree. As you can so i tried climbing it . I’m usually a pretty successful tree climber but I wasn’t having any luck today.DSC04394

Here is my friend doing a much better job of monkeying DSC04398

University of Regina

Took a tour of the University of Regina over the weekend. DSC04346This U of R sign apparently costed close to a million dollars so I just had to take a photo with it. DSC04340Gophers apparently are a common rodent in Saskatchewan. This is not road kill, it’s alive. I have no idea what it was just on the sidewalk. But it’s cute. DSC04338I also dropped by the First Nations University. Just look at that teepee building. DSC04353.jpg

Arrival

Been so busy trying to get everything set up and settled down in my new city that I have neglected to write an update. It’s been two full weeks now that I’ve arrived to Weyburn.
IMG_4497This is a picture of my parents have their last dinner with me before they left me to go back to Toronto. IMG_4443I had a couple days of hotel breakfast during my orientation.IMG_4426A few pictures of the view driving into Saskatchewan. IMG_4425It’s really flat out here and you can see flatness for miles and miles

Warrior Badges

Went snowboarding in Blue Mountain. This is my last outing with my friends before I go on another journey to a far away land to chase my dream job. Big news readers! I am moving to the province of Saskatchewan next!
