Montreal, here I come again






































You are seeing some pictures took in Montreal because... I am moving back to Montreal...

Not even a year after I left Montreal... I am running back to town... Better to laugh about it right. I did several applications in X town of New Brunswick, but I haven't received any news. I had applied to this X job in Montreal back in March, shortly after my laid off. I got the interview today and got the job. Its a temp position, but decided to accept it because its in a nice firm located downtown Montreal and the salary giving is ok. I prefer that rather than pursuing a job search leading me no where. Anyway, I am very please. The job begin in the middle of May. I am a moving specialist, I don't count the number of times I moved around.. I don't have any problems with that. I just consider myself lucky to actually find something. F the small business project LOL. It's not f, but I will try to develop it as a side project.

I am quite happy because now, I can stop searching for a job, I can concentrate on my "business" lol or just write on HubPages and stuff.

Montreal, BE READY. I am back.

i guess u need to sell ur car too?

Ruth said...

well congrats to you Sunny, your single and you can do whatever you like and the "the old folks" can have their house back but will say you paid good board money and my hat is off to you for that. i was only in Montreal for a few days, i love it there. good luck on your new job and perhaps a nice frenchman too.

Sunny said...

My mom will take back my car - which was her old one and she'll sell her new one. Her insurance were lower on my 2002 car rather than her 2008-2009 new car, that's the main reason why.

Thanks Ruth!

maybe not such a good idea. 2002 is already a 10 year old car! anyway, why back in montreal? why not another city in canada? you shouldn't be bitching about quebec and all. let's face it you have the choice to go anywhere in the world... in fact, life it is what it is, there's not point of wasting your breath and blasting anything quebec, since you decide to go back in live in quebec...

frank said...

You are a real idiot. You go, you come back, you have no direction. Just like your stock picking. You think that by doing everything you will get ahead, You think that by buying everything you will make money.

You write in secret, posting your city as XXXX and your new job as xxxx and your small business as xxxxx... honestly, as if we really care and as if it really matters what you write. who cares.... You are so self absorbed with yourself that you actually think that somebody (a fan maybe) will actually care to look you up in NB or care about your waitress or call center jobs. You are delusional.

I check this blog about 3 times a week, just before bedtime, to get a good laugh.

any good investments to suggest and write about?

Anonymous said...

is the keg really that good of an investment? i don't want to be like another ylo... the one year graph it's like a parabolic upward non stop trend which is kinda of scary. the only thing i can see happening, is a recession and people go out less and less. the keg charges about 30 bucks for a steak... it's tempting, but also there's that risk of going down and like another ylo...

Sunny said...

Well, I will go with what my mom want. But this morning, she decided to keep her new car. She wants to keep the old car too and put it under limited insurance so she can keep it. She loved her 2002 Echo, I cannot explain. Mom, you can keep your old car, I don't mind. Its all yours :)

In live, you do what you can and what you want. I had been laid off, I wont stay here fooling around when I got a job in Montreal. Fact is, MONTREAL WANTS ME. AND Montreal is going to get me.

;)

ahahah

I basically decided to take the first thing that present to me and this job is a good opportunity, in my field. I know the city, so it won't be hard to adjust.

If I like to secretly write about what I think, well you know, that only concern me. You have the right to disagree, but it's about it. I am not hurting no one by writing about my frustrations.

Being secret is part of what keep you reading this blog. Fool ya.

My portfolio is the best thing I ever did in my life, it's extra strong, and its giving me a good extra income.

I do have a direction, its about taking everything possible among the way.

I am not asking anyone from my circle of readers to offer me a job, I can take care of business alone. And fact is, I am very happy about this opportunity.

If you don't care, why do you read?

See, you are just facing as much frustrations as I do, just that you put your own sh*t on my blog. You are just not strong enough to start something of your own. Assume yourself.

I know what I am talking about with Quebec province. For 2011, I made over 43k, and I received an extra of $185. If I would be in Quebec, I would have certainly extra taxes to pay, no return. So those are part of the frustrations while living in Quebec and its ok to talk about it and express myself.

Sunny said...

For new investments, I think that KEG.UN was a pretty good one. I may invest in it soon. Other than that, nothing new, if not the new fund of Jean-François Tardif that I am still waiting for reception.

Ruth said...

so does that mean your off unemployment when you go to Montreal and start the job? Have you found an apartment already? So many things to consider and 43k is not a bad paying job...wish you could share what it was that paid that? had dinner at the Keg ,the other night..hmm questionable stock but do think Pembina is going for another high soon.

Anonymous said...

You might have a little more taxes to pay in Quebec, but you also have public transit, and jobs available which you don't have in New-Brunswick as you say. What good is it paying less tax in New-Brunswick if you don't have any work.

You can go to the US and pay even less tax and have no health care. What readers are trying to say is you rant about the negative all the time.
Why move to Montreal if you dislike everything about Quebec, I'm sure lots of work is available in Ontario also.

If you want to live a more happy life, they will tell you to write a journal everyday of things you have to be thankful for. You do the opposite, you write on your blog about all the negatives.

Sunny made a good decision taking the job in Montreal. It is a temp job but it can lead to better things. When she starts this job she can still look for a job else where if she is not stuck in a lease for renting.

Just maybe she will say more positive things about Montreal when she gets there as , unfortunately, there are not many jobs in small towns in Maritimes.

Frank, most people would jump at an opportunity to move back home for a job because home is home. I mean the area where you grew up not your parents house. I believe she is doing the right thing and she has a job to go to already meaning she can claim the moving expenses on her tax return.

Sunny said...

There's 2 Keg restaurants in Montreal, I will try to go once.

When an opportunity show up, I jump on it, no question to be ask. Having a job in my field in my hometown was nice, but it didn't last. And it will probably be getting 30k for that if not soon, in the next couple of months.

Living in my old folks home was a good idea because it allow me to avoid any lease and I preferred to give them some money instead of a complete stranger.

I won't share what I was doing in 2011 for a living. Like never.

I don't have a place to stay in Montreal yet but I am under process with a few things. I should know more tomorrow, I have a couple of things to check on.

I always go with no lease. Its more difficult, but I prefer that way. I didn't have a lease while being in Montreal before, I try to avoid again this time.

High on Dividends said...

You are on crack if u think u will get $30k for being an awful employee who deserved to get fired.....

They did not fire u for no reason. They had a very good, and documented it well. You will just end up with a ton of legal fees to have to pay them! B careful.

Anonymous said...

Congratulations on your move in life. Support for you.

Sunny said...

Thanks for the support :)

High on Dividend, think what you want, say what you want. I will get my hands on that 30k.

Liquid Independence said...

Cheers D-girl (^ _ ^ )o自自o( ^ _ ^ ) Very excited for you. Who knows, maybe this temp position can lead to full time employment later.

Sunny said...

Thanks :)

facebook ipo: worse of warning

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/facebook-reveals-revenue-profit-slide-093010348.html;_ylt=Au1GJa.5FMiTad0CuhjVgjqiuYdG;_ylu=X3oDMTQzM2l2MGVhBG1pdANGaW5hbmNlIEZQIEp1bWJvdHJvbiBMaXRlBHBrZwMyNTQ4MzFiNS1mYjNiLTNkYWEtOTg1MS0xYTg3YjM2NDdiY2EEcG9zAzEEc2VjA2p1bWJvdHJvbgR2ZXIDNGU4ZTMwNjAtOGRmOS0xMWUxLWI3NWUtZjg1ODgzZDU4NWZj;_ylg=X3oDMTFvdnRqYzJoBGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDBHBzdGNhdANob21lBHB0A3NlY3Rpb25zBHRlc3QD;_ylv=3

from this article, it seems facebook has peaked, stock will trade lower in my opinion in one or two years from ipo date.

riding the uncertainies of any stock or market. This is a typical case of confusing the cart & horse. As someone put it either $ is genetics (family/inheritance), pure luck (lottery, blind stock picking) or the nasty work word. Without a decent job or income from it attaining financial security is impossible. There's a blogger who figures he'll have more than 20k in divi's in his forties. With divi returns running anware around 3 to 4% & always the possiblity of losing capital due to a variety of factors, this is pie in the sky thinking. Focus on your career in your 20's establish yourself in your 30's. There's far more certainty in that than the random market walks, Cheers. Anony-pizza-n-anchovies

I don't quite understand what you are trying to say, but anyone can use of a source of income coming from a job to save some money and invest. Overtime, the dividend income grow, and the portfolio value as well.

The problem with you is that you don't believe. You are probably overspending and just cannot save any money and you are frustrated.

Live in your condition, leave other alone if they can do better.

What he is saying is you don't have to have 1 million in the bank to have financial freedom. People that have a career at something they love with a nice salary are not obsessed to save millions.

You put so much time investing in stocks and the next crash could make you lose 50% of your portfolio. It happened in the past and it will happen again in the future. Lots of older people had to delay their retirement because of it. You can't plan and control everything in life.

You are still young and should invest some time in yourself, something market crash can't take away from you. Get a degree and find work in something you would love to do.

Even if you would retire today on 12k or 15k dividend a year, what would you do with yourself. You said it yourself, you where unemployed and had a hard time motivating yourself to work at your business even though you needed the money. And 15k salary won't enable you to travel, or enjoy life, just enable you to not have to go to work.

Which is worse, having to go to work, or being stock at home because you only have enough money to pay the bills. At least at work, you socialize with other people.

Anony-pizza-retard : bad advice!

Anyone can get double that amount of divis by their late forties if they buy low and accumulate. It's not rocket science.

The question is, why aren't you in that position? Too much pizza and beer? Focus grasshopper, on your goal, and you will achieve. I for once ( very rarely) agree on this one with Sunny....

in your case it doesn't work. you have too many investments and the majority very poor quality. you don't like to take anybody's advice. only a major market crash and many margin calls and high interest on your loans will teach you a lesson... a real dose of reality check... you are way over optimistic, you have to come down to earth and start listening to people...

Sunny said...

I won't answer to those questions.

Start listening to people bad advice? No thank you...

Buy low & accumulate....LOL If the world was that simple. The concept of divi reinvestment is you wind up buying high & low in every market. Its really buy & hold & buy some more. I won't get into the perils of mindless buy & hold even for the most stable of companies. As for divi accumulation, Dividend Monk provides a great hypothetical number crunch. It takes 18 years for one 30K stock purchase to generate 20K divi's. He assumes a 8% divi increase p.a.& a corresponding stock price increase. But thats a totally imaginary world. Double it?? Yep, Anon...buy your lottery ticket first.

I agree with Sunny on this one. Everyone should put money aside for investing and savings. It should be no less than 10% of your income no matter how much income you make. I save and invest 30% of all income, no matter where it comes from, and also save and invest what is left over every month.

Having a real expensive college education is kind of pointless if you are going to live paycheck to paycheck. What happens if you lose your job and not able to get another one right away?

People with investments and savings can use their savings and dividend income (or whatever other passive income) as a cushion while the find another job. EI takes a about 4-5 weeks usually to start.
