I've Got a Summer Job...
In Ottawa!!!

It was just confirmed this morning. I'm going to be working as a Parliamentary Guide in Ottawa over the summer (May through the first week of September). That's what the mystery interview in Vancouver two weeks ago was for.
I had a first round interview in December, which was basically just a 25 minute oral French exam. Then, two weeks ago, I had a 2 hours group interview at UBC. The group interview included a 35 minute written exam, a presentation, and a few group activities, as well as parts in French.
I must say that I'm still a bit shocked that I'm going to be working in the Parliament buildings. The government is even going to pay for my return flight from Vancouver to Ottawa.

Hey, I'll be starting training May 2nd, but I'll get to Ottawa a few days earlier (I don't know when yet, Ottawa is taking care of that).
I'm hoping to get down to TO sometime over the summer. Gotta hit up H&M.
