Should I stay or should I go?

I'm in the doldrums. There are months to go before I apply for citizenship and all I can do is wait and study for the exam. I have been careful not to travel out of the country because that will delay the date when I have reached my four-years, but it's hard. I have family in the States and they want to see me and it's hard for them to understand. I'm thinking maybe I'll push my application date back a few more weeks and see them in the springtime instead of making them wait until May.

These are the decisions you have to make as an immigrant awaiting citizenship. The government has its requirements. You have to meet them. The first litmus test is have four-years worth of days in Canada. It was only three years a short time ago, but I have Harper to thank for pushing me and many others back. He was big on talk, then big on delaying tactics for immigration and citizenship opportunities.

I'll continue to get things in order for the application date and try not to sweat a few extra weeks delay. It will mean a lot to my family to see me. That's actually more important.
