Exactly 25 days from my Spanish Visa appointment at the Chicago Consulate General of Spain my Spanish Student Visa finally arrived! Needless to say, I’m pretty pumped.
Sure enough the Ron Swanson .gif – once again – describes my excitement, except that last year when I used this .gif along with the following excitement .gifs I was jealous of all of their mustaches and wished I could grow one. So, over the past year I grew one, although not for this specific reason. It was more of a dare.
Mustache aside, I am so excited that my Spanish Visa is here! The staff at the Chicago Consulate said that it would take 4 weeks to process plus time to ship. I assumed that meant 5 weeks. Luckily, the 25 days it took to arrive was a pleasant surprise. Now, with my ticket purchased, Spain is only 36 days away!!!!!
Although, now my brain has switched to packing, resigning from my job, moving out of my apartment, spending as much time with family and friends as possible, figuring out a phone for Spain, deciding what to do with my car, and so, so, so much more….
It’s a little overwhelming, but I cannot wait for the adventure ahead! If you have any tips for figuring out a phone for living in Spain, how to spend your last month at home, or anything else it would be much appreciated.
Only 36 days!!!
Apologies for the short post, but I wanted to announce that my Visa had arrived since a lot of other future auxiliares are awaiting their Visas. Good luck to everyone else out there!
