I finally got my PR last month. Huhu I know I said this blog gets the dibs but well it happened so fast! I announced it instantly on Instagram as I am mostly active on that social media. So here’s how it happened…
FEBRUARY 8, 2022
It was a Tuesday morning around 2 AM, I had my alarm turned on because I wanted to attend this webinar. When the alarm went off, I just screen-recorded the whole thing duh because why not. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get back to sleep and was wide awake until 4 AM. I decided then that it’s better to just get things started for the day. So I did my hair and make-up and went out of the house at around 5:30 AM. I took the long route to work and decided to spend some time at Starbucks and just watch people pass by. Around 7 am, I started walking to my workplace.
It was becoming a usual day for me, except I received an email response from IRCC regarding my follow-up email on the PR Confirmation. I kinda just brushed it off but couldn’t help myself to feel hopeful that it would mean that they are actually looking at my file at that moment. An hour had passed and my phone just beeped. I received an email….from IRCC. I SQUEALED!
My co-worker immediately faced me looking confused and I told her I just received a PR email! I nervously opened the email on my laptop. The moment I saw the words ‘Congratulations! Your status as a permanent resident is confirmed.’ I let out a cry of joy!
You guys all know how I have been waiting for this day 🥺 It was radio silence for four months since I received my medical update. Anyway, I couldn’t believe it and had to read the whole thing again and again. The next thing I did was to call my mom even though she was sleeping at that time. She was like what’s up and I told her the good news!
Joe and I went to Shameful Tiki after work to celebrate. I bought her flowers to celebrate hers too and we ate more than we drank. It was a good day! I posted on Instagram and Facebook as well so lots of people were congratulating me and sending me long messages. It was so nice to read their sweet messages.
The rest of the week was eventful. I went out a lot, drank, laughed, and cried. It was amazing.
I still can’t believe it.
Thank you, Canada.
