Me, myself and I

It's just not that simple.

Quick Update
general: squirrel
Today was the interview and it was... awkward. I'm so much more used to North-American small talk than German get-to-the-point-and-don't-waste-my-time-ness. I have no idea if the lady who interviewed me, my proposed supervisor, thinks I'm capable, smart or at least nice. And I won't know for sure before the end of May. However, they will have me fly in to visit the institute, pay for the airfare and a hotel. Sounds good so far, right?

Also, I totally forgot to mention that I started another job for the remaining 1.5 months here. It's very similar to what I did back in Germany, going to day cares, playing with little kids, doing experiments with them. It's great experience and while the long commutes take up a lot of time, it's also a nice chance to see parts of Montreal I hadn't seen before. And I love kids so much. =)

So, things are going fine. Busy but fine.

Yay for the new job! :)

And the visit to the institute sounds nice. :D Good luck with that!

♥ ♥ ♥!

YAY! That's good news. :)

Do let me know when they have you fly in. If you are in the neighbourhood, then I'd like to see you again. :)

Yeah, I hope it means good news. :)

It'll most likely be the week of May 17. I'll let you know more when the day's closer.
However, I can't really go anywhere because I have Liam with me. He's probably not super psyched about joining me anyway, so I doubt that he's in for a ride to your town. ;)
And I'm not sure if the folks at the institute would be cool with a one-way flight because these tend to be very expensive (as in: more expensive than a round trip) out of Germany. But I'll inquire.

Butttt... if you wanted to come down (google maps is silly, so I don't know how long it is, might be totally unreasonable), then we could have a fun time there. :D

It's in Nijmegen, right? That's an hours drive for me, so totally doable. I'm not really familiar with the area and city, so we'll figure out what to do then. :D

Yep, in Nijmegen (and I hate that all the Germans there pronounce it Nimwegen... what is so hard about just using the Dutch name, especially since we have that throaty sound in our language :P). Woohoo - would be cool to see you again! :D

And, seriously, I'm falling more and more in love with this idea of spending the next 3 years in cheese-tulip-windmill land (ahum, I looked for apartments yesterday... juuuuust to check), so this better work out.
