July 20, 2005: Shame, shame, shame
I am completely out of shape when it comes to writing here. I am quite empty inside...and tired. I have so many things to worry about. Forms to fill in, fees to pay, appointments to book. It sure isn't easy to go to the United States of Love, and I assume that it isn't supposed to be easy. As usual I do everything in the wrong order; I postpone the most urgent tasks. Yesterday, when I wanted to book an appointment for the VISA interview at the American Embassy I found out that there are no available times until August 31! I am supposed to leave on August 30! Now, the thing is that a message on the American Embassy webpage says that the typical wait time for exchange students is 7 days! I called the Embassy and was told to send a fax and demand an appointment earlier in August. There are usually cancellations... I pray that this will work out some how.
