Place 72 – Day 455: Vancouver, BC – The Results Are In!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a short team meeting at 09:30 and then mostly did tickets all morning until a 1 on 1 at 12:00.

After that, he had a long team meeting at 12:30, which was followed by lunch.

After lunch, Curtis did some more tickets but also some practice tests for his Business Analyst exam.

Speaking of exams, we got our results for our English exams.

Curtis got (out of 12);

Listening – 8

Reading – 12

Writing – 10

Speaking – 12

He was hoping for better on listening, but it was all fine!

Kim did much better, getting 12 on everything, which was awesome!

Kim’s Day

To start her day Kim had a call with someone in regards to her facilities project. Then she moved onto drafting up some key points in a Job Description she worked on today.

Kim then had a call with the CEO to go over what we are looking for in an application. Then Kim got started and transferred some of those notes into key points for the job. She had another quick call in regards to the facilities project mid way through the morning.

For most of the day Kim worked on the job description, doing some research and converting the notes into things for the job description. She also decided to write up a template for ‘about the company’ and ‘why its great to work here’ that can go on every job description, so that was good and will save Kim a lot of time going forward.

Kim then worked on another job description and an offer letter for another role. Very interesting and exciting day!

To finish the day Kim worked on a little more research for the facilities project. Looked a few new things, added to the spreadsheet and made lots of good notes.

Evening

We forgot to take chicken out for dinner, so we had frozen pizza for dinner instead.

We watched some TV and played some games, but we also got our applications started for our visas, which we can now do as we got our English results! We still have to wait on our certificates for our previous qualifications to be certified by Canada, and then we should be able to do the test of the process, if we can’t do so before.


This Time Last Year!

Place 72 – Day 451: Vancouver, BC – English Test

English Test

We had an English test today, starting at 10:00.

As mentioned yesterday, even though we are from the UK, we still have to have an English test completed for our PR, so that’s what we did!

We were up at 07:30 and very tired!

We walked down to the test centre which was about 15 minutes away.

We got there and had to sit around for a while and then we were taken in for our ID checks.

We then moved to the test room and sat our computers ready to take the test. That being said, we at there for 45 minutes waiting to start!

We eventually started and Curtis did it pretty quickly. We had 3 hours to do so, and Curtis completed it in 1 hour 15 minutes! There was a listening, reading, writing and speaking section.

Kim finished not too long after, maybe 30-45 minutes, and we were done!

We went to get ourselves a coffee and we both think it went pretty well.

We got home and were very tired!

Need For Speed, Completed!

We completed Need For Speed, so that was fun, and then Kim had to do a little bit of work for something that came up during the day.

After that, we mustered up the effort to go and do the shop.

We smashed the shop! Military precision was used and we got around it really fast, and even went to two other shops!

We got back home and had some cheese and wine for dinner whilst watching the film JEXI which was pretty funny and silly.

We relaxed for the rest of the evening. The day felt very long as we were up so early!


This Time Last Year!
