Finally, I hold, within the grasp of my hands, a one-year US visa. It only took several months of paperwork and a 5 hour wait on the pavement outside the US embassy for a 30-second interview to get to this point.
I’m flying out on Tuesday, which is veeery soon. I’ll be living in Lexington, MA (just outside Boston).
It’s my 20th birthday on 25th August (next friday). As I won’t really know many people at that point, I’m hoping to get a few members of Gentoo’s boston conspiracy together for a meal or something, suggestions appreciated. Hopefully the worst of the jet lag will have worn off at that point.
Also hosting a joint leaving-and-nearly-birthday BBQ celebration at my house on Saturday. Hopefully it will have stopped raining by then.
