Well, looks like Canada's out

I sent away for my birth certificate back in the beginning of February. According to their policy, they would have started the process right after my check cleared and it would have taken 12 weeks since then until I can get it. My checked cleared in around the end of February and I got a thing in the mail saying that my birth certificate would get here around now. It hasn't come yet so my mom called them (I was planning to do it later, she beat me to it). They didn't start processing it until April 23! Weeks after when they were supposed to! I'll be lucky if I get it by July! We wanted to go to British Columbia but it looks like that won't happen!
My mom then called the State Assembly person for our district to see if she can help (Karen Bass). I hope she can help, this is just ridiculous! It's easier to get a Passport then a birth certificate! Blah!

I have one final today, English. Tomorrow I have Anthropology and then I'm free! Haha, if it were any other final I wouldn't see Indy tonight but it's anthro! A bunch of Anthro people, with only that final tomorrow, are going to see it. We're all comfortable with it.

Time to get ready for school!

When are you going? Because don't you need a passport now to get into Canada, not just a birth certificate? I think that passed this January. A passport takes a few weeks too, I think I didn't get mine for like six weeks. That'd be cutting it close if you plan to go soon. :( On the bright side, Maybe you'll have been one of the first people they processed, if you're lucky, and you'll get it by the end of this week or next? I don't see why it would take twelve weeks. I think it took me maybe a month to get mine. Though, I don't live in California so I don't know how they do things out there, haha.

I need a birth certificate to get a passport. My mom lost my old one, so I have to get a new one.

Supposedly, the passports took that long because of the rush from everybody when the law passed. I know a few people that got theirs after 2 weeks.

I got my passport before that. I got it back in 2005 when Tim and I were supposed to go to England. However, isn't there a way to do a passport renewal or duplicate? I didn't think you needed your birth certificate for that? Or the old passport? I know nothing about this kind of thing so it's just good to know just in case, haha.

I've never had one before, so it's brand new passport for me.

that sucks! British Columbia is one of our most beautiful provinces ^-^ It's a shame, I would love for you to see it. I went for a week at the end of Feb/beginning of March and went to two cities. It was so breathtaking!

I've been to British Columbia before. Vancouver, Inland Passage, Victoria, and some places I don't remember the names of. I absolutely love it, if I were to move to Canada, it would be the B.C. :D
