One Less Thing To Worry About...

I'm no longer here illegally! Thank God, my passport-- with an extension until 31 January 2009-- came in the post this morning. I would say *Halle...* you know, but it's Lent. None of those til Easter. =) Yet still, I am so thankful that two months and two attempts and three hundred pounds later, I can breathe a little easier, at least about that. There are plenty of other things to be stressed about, and believe me, I am stressed! But at least I can be stressed right where I am in Aberdeen and not have to worry about being here. Whew! Thank you, God!

Now I just have to see about getting a National Insurance number so they can officially take taxes out of my check for the National Health Service... ah, bureaucracy!

You are one step closer to becoming a Scotchman and leaving your US ties behind. LMAO! I never thought you would have traded haggis for fried chicken but who new?? HEHEHE!

JK

So does this mean you can get a job and what not now?

No, it just means that now I can stay and finish my thesis. Once that's done, I have to apply for another visa to stay and work. I can still work part time, like I have been, but that's all. I'll eventually have to drop another couple hundred pounds if I want to stay here and work....

What's wrong with haggis? I like it. And we have KFC... =)

That's good news. I'm glad you're no longer living illegally.

LMAO, you were an illegal resident. They should build walls to keep students like you out. LOL!

Not walls so much as big deep underwater nets, to stop us before we ever can swim to shore, ha!
