    Re: When do I mention....?

    I can't recall 100%, but I'm pretty sure there is part of the application that asks you your marital status and if you have dependents. Hope that helps. :)

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    Every time I see a post from a fellow Van alternate, I freak a little. Obviously no call yet. I think I need to go out and do something in the real world and stop thinking about this. :/

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    Haven't heard anything back either. And I am so with you! Checking my phone too much and having it next to me at work, even though I technically shouldn't. This last week has taught me that I have...

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    I know. And what's a few days considering all the waiting that we've already done. I either need to keep busy, or just sleep a lot in the coming days to pass the time. ;)

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    I know! It's the worst! Basically I've been hoping that the right shortlisters and the right amount of shortlisters decline/miss the deadline/forget the paperwork/etc., so that we can all get...

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    I feel the same too. I'm contemplating life paths and options. It's so hard with having that uncertainty, though. Can't wait until Monday when the paperwork is due at my consulate. Then maybe I'll...

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    I'm writing a novel. Or well... pretending to. Doing a National Novel Writing Month camp. Trying to learn Kanji characters and pretending that every voice mail is my upgrade call. The usual. What...

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    Along the line of the certificate of health costs, I just thought I'd throw in my experience for any Canadian Alternates as I had to get everything done for early departure eligibility. At the clinic...

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    Yeah, it was definitely a bit of a rush to get it done. And costly, but you do what you've got to do. :) And yeah, I kept thinking "what if I get early departure? How am I conceivably going to up and...

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    I know, that whole weight issue thing is a bit of a bummer. A delicious bummer.

    I applied for early departure, so luckily I already sent everything off in February. It's nice to not have to worry...

    Fortunately I've decided to do Camp NaNoWriMo this month because writing a ridiculous number of words in a short time is an easy way to forget about everything. I actually decided to do it to make...

    Re: Alternates Hangout
