And yet, another visa problem
It’s January, a beginning of another year.I have stopped to be optimistic on the new year when I embarked on a PhD journey. But this time, the self-pity level has reached a dangerous level. This time, the year was not only started with “darn…another year of “trying to finish the thesis””, it was also started with administrative problems commonly faced by the citizens of not-favorable-nations. I was supposed to be in a different continent, fighting 10 hours jet-lag, crying my heart out for missing home, and working my ass to finally have some work done. In fact, I am still at home, crying my heart out and missing so many hours of sleep, wondering when I will finally get a free-to-come stamp on my passport. While life-threatening situation is a much bigger problem than some paper issues, I assure you, having your life in limbo awaiting a visa status is quite an experience.I cannot wait to the time when I can think of this moment in a nostalgic mode.
