I’m no Superman

So, in the past week, I’ve spilled water on my one-month-old MacBook Pro and had my visa application rejected.

…But, there is hope. I took Caspian in to the Geniuses at the Apple Store and they said he should pull through. He’s sitting in a corner of my room in the “tent position” to keep drying out. Here’s hoping. [I’m currently using dear old faithful Luna, the iBook.] And, the hoops I have to jump through for appealing the visa decision are just hoops, and the University is supporting me, so, it should [again, hopefully] not be a big deal. There was a mix-up with funding information. Presumably when they see this next set of documents, it will all be okay. Again, here’s hoping.

Driving back from the Apple Store mostly encouraged, with my windows down and blaring the Heroes mix Kelly made me, definitely helped cheer me up. So did skyping with her this evening. ❤

Sarah says that I’m good at surmounting insurmountable obstacles, but I’m no Superman either.

I haven’t sat down to read in over a week. I haven’t seen a movie since Les Miserables… which was when I was still in Shawnee. I spend my days filing and making labels for yet more files. Thus, all mental creativity has evaporated by the time I get home. I’m not a writer, I’m not a reader… what am I?


Update 03/07/08: Julie Campbell, the Financial Aid Administrator, is my hero. If/when we succeed, I’m going to find her and thank her in person.

    I ❤ you!

    (sadly…my fun reading days have now been limited by starting school reading…it’s okay though…) Oh, if your attention span for reading is short you should get Jhumpa Lahiri’s Unaccustomed Earth, since it is short stories it goes more quickly. And they’re really good 😀

    After I finish the books I’m currently reading, I’ll reassess what book I’ll read next, and add “Unaccustomed Earth” to the list of possibilities. 🙂

    Kelly–sure!
