Only in Redneck Nation… unbelievable
“The S.C. Supreme Court on Monday upheld the drunken driving convictions of a father whose three sons died after he gave them alcohol and told his 15-year-old to drive his truck. Michael Batchelor, 40, did not dispute getting drunk with his three sons in July 2002, then driving them to find marijuana. …”
In other news, I finally have some good visa news! Well, it’s more like we’re going from the negative scale to 0, as the lawyer finally finally finally said that we can apply for my H1B workvisa in the American graduate degree (MBA)category. I cannot believe all the bullcrap that led up to this but finally we are at point zero and can move forward. So fingercrossing is still VERY important now obviously and nothing is sure but it’s looking a whole lot better than last week or the week before or the week before or well you get my point. 😉
I also got a great review from my boss last week, aparently he is super happy with my work. He rarely gives me any feedback so I am usually wondering what he thinks about my work so that was reassuring.
My date is doing very well, too. We spent a lovely Sunday together walking around the neighborhood for a few hours and then watching some TV. He is a very smart and sweet and hot guy. Can’t wait to get to know him even more. Right now I still feel like I don’t know him that well even though we’ve been dating for pretty much a month now (wow, where does time go these days?!). But that’s the fun of dating, right?! It’s just all about getting to know people and start digging underneath the surface of all these superficial American boys and find out about their dark sides (just kidding!).
So other then that, I did the usual things like hanging out with friends, working, shopping (Target stockholders are gonna be so rich…), eating well. Had cajun food this Saturday – can’t say that my stomach was too happy.
This week is going to be super busy! Last night I had coffee with Chadi. Tonight Vanessa is having a skin care party (think Tupperware). Tomorrow I’m gonna hang out with David. Thursday I’m having sushi with Markus who studied with me back in the day. Friday – oh a day off! And then Saturday is Markus’s birthday party and Max is in town and Axel’s birthday is on Thursday so I’m sure they’ll have a party, too. Ahhhh!
And then next week, my sister is coming to town. Yay! 9 more days! Can’t wait to show her Charlotte AND Charleston. Two of my favorite cities. 🙂
