Well..... finding a job in Taiwan was tough enough, and finding a second to compliment the first has been even tougher. I was ready to throw in the towel and go back to easier money in Korea, but that option isn't as easy as it used to be since it would take 4 months or so to fulfill all of their work visa requirements.
That leaves my parents offer they put on the table months ago: if we ever wanted to come back to Canada they would pay the tickets for all of us. That won't be necessary since my wife probably won't be able to get the right visa for around a year, but I think it's time I return, myself, and get my life in order there and work on bringing the family as well.
Our pigs are finally turning a profit as we speak, and it's too little too late. Not too late for them. Just too late for me. I gotta scramble again to cover all the interest on the debts we wracked up wrecklessly drinking the perennial kool-aid. My wife will stay there and make sure they keep doing well. But I must join the real world again.
Hopefully my parents and I can coordinate a ticket home - after a visit to the family - and I'll be in a colder climate again, with more options available work-wise.
