Yesterday, I had the chance to sit through a Canadian Citizenship Ceremony. No, it was not fun. Yes, it was boring but you can bet I would do it again (eventually.) I went with my dads best friend, he has been living with us for almost a year now and was in the process of gaining his citizenship. Throughout this whole process, my family and I have been helping him out with becoming legal, mind you I have been the one to do a lot of the translating but I'm used to it. Being a first generation Canadian, you get stuck having to do a lot of translating and helping your parents out. I was literally raised to be a translator haha. 

Anyways, yesterday was kind of emotional and so very exciting! Having been a part of the process for so long seeing it finally come to an end where everyone is happy makes all of the headaches worth it. If you saw these people receiving their Canadian citizenship you would understand. They all looked so happy and finally relaxed. 

If you've never experienced the immigration process it is a long and very gruelling one. We have many family friends who are in the process and many of my parents friends are immigrants. The process can take many years and it is very stressful. So to all those who are becoming immigrants, be it in Canada, USA or any other country in the world. I wish you the best of luck and the most happiness! 

Canada is such a beautiful country and I am so fortunate my parents decided to immigrate here. I love how multicultural our country is and how accepting (most of us) we are. Welcome all new immigrants and all future immigrants! 

I hope that you all have had a wonderful week it's almost the weekend, yay!!!
