Visa app and the such

Hey Everybody!

So far my blog has been fairly boring so in an attempt to make it more interesting, I'm going to talk about the visa process.

A week or two ago I got my visa info from AFS and I started the crazy process of collecting different kinds of documents and waiting for AFS to send me the rest of the documents i needed. After calling the consulate in New York numerous times and going to the bank and the doctors office, I went to Fedex and got my application shipped off to the New York office of AFS. Because of the time constraints, AFS is going to personally walk the application over to the consulate in hopes that it will get thru the scrutiny faster.

So essentially now im just waiting for my visa to be processed and sent back to me.

Also I've been painstakingly trying to prepare for my departure in 19 days. I have so much to do in so little time. I'm working on going through my closet and trying to create a packing list. Unfortunatley I think of new things to add to the list all the time so its kind of like a never ending process. I will say packing for an entire year and multiple seasons is a lot of work and stress. But soon I'll be in Belgium and it'll all be worth it :P

On the plus side though, I have all my paperwork in for AFS and I have my flight to New York booked. So just one step closer...

jusqu'a la prochaine fois
