A New Home North of the Border

Posted on 27 June 2017 under Uncategorized

My move from the United States to Canada left me with a lot of mixed feelings. I was sad to move and leave behind all of my friends and family, but I was also happy that I would be getting a chance at a better life by having a better job. I was fearful of the unknown, afraid that no one would accept me, and unsure if I would be successful. I was moving into the 260 High Park condos, which was a little different from the small apartment that I used to have. It was a much needed upgrade, but I was worried about meeting my new neighbors.

As I unloaded my belonging from my truck and brought them up to my condo, I was greeted by one of my next door neighbors. He was just coming home from running a few errands and introduced himself to me. He helped me with my boxes and invited me in for a bit. I didn’t expect to warm up to my neighbors on the first day. I didn’t meet my other neighbors until later that day. I got to know them pretty well and forgot all about the fear and worry that I had when I first came to Canada.

Two days later, I had to go to work at my new job for the first time. I didn’t know what the work environment would be like at this particular location. The environment at my old job was pretty strict, and sometimes I even thought about quitting because of how tough it was, but I stuck it out, and it was a good thing I did. At my new job, the environment was a bit more relaxed. There was even a gym and a swimming pool for employees to use if they wanted.
