Doing things afraid

I failed my goal for the year of writing two posts a week. I completely missed making a blog post last weekend.

A lot has happened in two weeks.

Work Permit First, Jomar received his work permit! Finally! I should do a post on how to get your boyfriend in the Philippines to Canada and how Jomar and I did it.
