As you may or may not know, applying for a visa in EU is a little...interesting. To sum up, you're not allowed to be in the EU for more than 3 months without a visa, but you don't find out the status of your visa until about 5 months into your stay. So really, you could just pay 300 Euros to stay in the country longer. Just saying.
I was fairly sure I was going to get my residence permit. There was nothing on my application that was out of place. And I had written proof that my night involving a pimp offering body shots of coke and a large black woman named Juanita would have no affect on my application status. Or maybe I just had forgotten to mention that. :-D
I got my letter a couple days ago. But it was in Dutch...and I couldn't read it. And my family wasn't home. And it was really hard to type a five page letter into google translator. So I had no idea. At all. It was a little weird.
But long story short...I got it. And I'm here. And I'm so incredibly happy. And I didn't even have to marry a hot dutch guy.
See you October 28th.
