Just wanted to let everybody know what’s going on in my life right now. A couple of interesting things happening, so here they are in no particular order:
My plan was to take parental leave from work beginning at the end of January, but my manager was kind enough to buy out my contract since she said I probably needed the money with another baby. So they bought out my 4 months left on my contract, and told me to call back in a few months to see if there’s any other contract that can be offered to me, which brings me to my next point.
We’re going back to Indonesia for good within the next few months. It’s becoming clear that raising 2 children here is tougher than it seems, and my wife can’t stand it anymore, so the decision has been made to leave Canada sometime in September or even before then. I’m still not sure as to what I’ll be doing in Indonesia yet, possibly start some IT consulting company, but by God’s grace I’m sure I’ll find something that can be done
In relation to that, we’re in the process of trying to select agents to sell the condo, and also find people to sell all the stuff we can’t possibly bring along. These include, but are not limited to: the piano, unopened book rack, mattresses, TV, furniture and tons of other small stuff. If you feel you need something (or even if you want to buy a condo), give me a call, I might have it
Also in preparation for that, I’ve decided to study for the PMP certification, so I might have it handy should I need to open an IT Project Management company in Indonesia. It might take a couple of months of study, so I’m thinking of studying in June/July once the baby is a bit grown up and my wife can handle taking care of the two kids alone.
So, a couple of life changing decisions made, an interesting and quite tiring last few months, but I’m really looking forward to this new chapter in life.
