I have no more money, my accommodation is about to expire (April) and my  Visa requirements would mean borrowing $3000 from my parents (already borrowed $4K). My Canadian work Visa is not estimated to arrive until Late April/May, and I’m struggling to find under the table cash jobs. Common sense says, go back to NZ. But, I am enrolled in Second City, and in a relationship (though he says go back to NZ, recoup, and come back. As does my mother).

I genuinely don’t know what to do. This whole time I’ve wanted to run home to NZ, admitting defeat, but I love Second City. In order to stay I would need an under the table cash job, and some accommodation in April, May, maybe onwards.

100% lost and don’t know what to do. I effing ate this, it’s been a horrible, horrible few months trying to survive here. But my God I just want to be able to stay. What to I doooo?

  6. blackling answered: You might have to go back. It sucks, leaving the city you love, but sometimes when there are no other options, it’s what’s best.
