A few years ago I made a resolution to get rid of my debt. I owed the bank over 17,000 euro due to overspending and a massive hole in my hand. Well, for once I managed to keep that resolution. Of course it took a while, but early 2009 I was debt free. Everything paid off. The reason for that resolution was my wish to emigrate to Canada and with a debt I didn't stand a chance.
Once I had gotten rid of my debt I had to start saving. Because with a debt they won't allow you in, but neither will they if you haven't got two cents to rub together. So, I started saving. And saving. And saving. There were some spanners in the works: Sophie became ill with cancer; my computer crashed and I even went on holiday. But as I looked at my savings account yesterday I realised: I've made my second goal. So, I will start looking for an agent and a job in Canada asap and hope to cross the pond one-way in late summer!
My resolution this year: emigrate to Canada... What's yours?
PS: I wish all my readers and followers a very happy and healthy 2011!
