Even though I feel like I have the majority of my shit straightened out (an apartment, a closet, a bank account, a market near my house, a job, a second job, an unlimited metro card), there are still so many frustrations here.
For one thing, we have to get a special stamp in our passport that says that we are not carrying any dangerous diseases inside our body. To get this stamp, we are required to send another stamped form to the department where they hand out these stamps, and wait for them to contact us. Unfortunately, the department is incredibly likely to lose your papers. Naturally, being the dumbass I am, I didn’t make a copy of my paper. Meaning that they most likely lost mine.
I got a thing in the mail saying that they received my paper (which doesn’t mean the end, because just because they’ve received it doesn’t mean it won’t get misplaced in the trash can) but nothing after that, and that was two weeks ago. I kind of don’t give a shit, because the worst they can do is deport me and I’ll have to pay a bunch of money but my life will go on, I just will have to host at a restaurant for a year while paying off all the money I owe on everything. I won’t get killed by the state because I didn’t have a check-up.
Also, my bank has decided that it will only post transactions that happened ten days or earlier, meaning that the things that I bought within the past ten days are not online. I guess I got paid today, I don’t fucking know, I probably won’t see it show up in my statement until ten days from now.
I need to eat some dinner and I have enough money to go to a restaurant but I don’t know if my roommate does and I don’t want to be a shit head and seem like I’m flaunting dat ca$h (because I’m really not), it’s just if I eat stir fried rice one more night…
then again, what the fuck am I going to eat at a restaurant, vegetarian meals don’t exist here.
