If the German government were a person, I would punch him in the face (der Stadt = masculine). I have been trying to get a freakin’ visa since the 30 of April. Of course, I have a temporary visa. However, it is completely useless. I cannot work, get a bank account, or any other important thing that normal people do. Not only that, but every time that I go to an appointment, the requirements for a practical visa (to study/work part-time) changes. Last time it was tax information for my guy that states that he is financially responsible for me. This time they want me to have a savings account with $8,040 Euro. How the heck am I supposed to save money if I am not allowed to work? Now our options are to either get married or to find $8,040 Euro. I could also go back to the US. These options are not really ideal. It isn’t that I am not in love, this just isn’t how I pictured getting married. And if we want to get the money it means asking other people for help which pretty much means they own my @ss. I am also just getting the hang of being here and do not really want to go back to New York. So, today just sucks – especially because I really thought today would be our day. Now I have to wait more than a month for another try. Maybe it is just a sign. I don’t know. Regardless, German bureaucracy sucks. I should just pop out 6 babies, apply for welfare and leech of the state for the next 20 years. At least then I would have a visa.
