Kyle is a graduate!
The day has finally come! I have completely, officially and in every possible way finished my degree. There is nothing left for me to do now than to wait...yet again...I hate waiting. But at least this time I can wait knowing that I am a graduate. YAAAAAYYYY!!! So the next question you all might be asking is, “when are you going to S. Korea to be with your wife. Weeeeeeellll, there's just not a simple answer to that. The problem is, after I get my “unofficial” diploma I will be able to start my application for my working Visa. That can take anywhere from a month to 3 depending on....well frankly I don't know why the hell it takes so long but I guess you have to be Korean to understand ;) This day has been a loooooong time coming so I'm trying hard not to concern myself so much with the long wait to come and simply enjoy the experience of knowing that I am a college grad. AT LAST!
So, for the next couple weeks, I will be helpin the folks rescue the fort from the downward spiral it seems to be in at the moment. Lots of chores may seem overwhelming to some but to me, it's a list of things to do when I have had few productive outlets for my restless impatience. It's also nice to have some time to spend with the parental units, even if it is in a very cold house. Better a cold house than no house right?
Oh ya, and today, I learned something about possums. Apparently they do not burrow in the ground like I thought but rather, do enjoy borrowing in the insulation under the roof! Makes sense now that I think about it, but at the time that I was very cautiously releasing it from the trap we set out for the raccoons that were burrowing in the roof, all I kept thinking was, “stupid possum, this trap was meant for the critters burrowing in our roof! Retard.” Ironic huh?
