Student visa has arrived!

I was at work when my sister texted me and let me know that a package from the Consolato Generale d'Italia arrived and I'm pretty sure my heart jumped out of my body and onto the floor. One of my co-workers told me his friend was trying to study abroad to Argentina and his visa application was denied and ever since that moment, I had been apprehensive about my own visa. "What if they denied me? What if they said no? I mean I already paid for my ticket and paid my deposit, how could they do this to me?!! I am an outstanding member of society!!" After practically throwing my phone across the room because of my shaky hands (I love how dramatic I'm making this out to be), I asked her to open it and when my phone buzzed again I was preparing for the most profound heart break of my life but instead, it was a picture message of my visa and I had to refrain from screaming, YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND. I couldn't contain my excitement and some of the parents noticed and congratulated me, it made my day.

The midsummer evaluation at work that I was brooding over also went exceptionally well. My boss didn't evil-laugh maniacally, there was no thundering/lightning, or any suspenseful/you're-getting-fired kind of music playing when I walked into her office. I was a nervous wreck (I peed like twice before I went in) that she would critique every fiber of my being, but she didn't have any recommendations on what I needed to improve and told me I was very pleasant to work with. Today has been amazing and you know what makes this day even better? I have tomorrow off!

I am the same way. People like to tell you things like that after you've done something. I'd be in panic mode. Lol. I'm glad you got your visa.
