wolfqueen001 Time for a change... I think this sums me up pretty well:

Things tend to turn out well when you worry, so that's probably good. - EmP

I still <333 wolves, though.

Anyone know how long it takes to get a passport?

Apparently I'm supposed to have one in order to send a photocopy with my study abroad application, which I didn't even know about until I looked at the application. And the application's due on the 13th.

I don't know why they can't wait until later to see your passport. I mean, really, what's the point of applying for one if you don't even get accepted into the program? And then they want you pay at least $500 up front to apply in the first place, so it's like they're just trying to take your dumb money....

I suppose I should've known this ahead of time, but I didn't. I never do. Until it's too late usually. Story of my life.

Anyway, this was all for the Mallorca program with the school, which I ultimately decided to choose because even though it's not mainland Spain (I really wanted to go to Barcelona), it's still something, and it's through the school so it's one of the cheaper ones and it's a lot easie paperwork wise to handle. It's also led by one of the school's faculty (and in this case, he's actually from there), so I wouldn't feel quite as lost there.

So yeah, unless I can get my passport within a few weeks, or unless they accept just proof of application and not the passport itself, I'm screwed royally up the ass with a three-foot wide lead pipe.

Ruin my week it does. And right before Spring Break....

Don't even talk to me about the history paper I need to have drafted by the end of break, either... That's going to give me three hundred hernias, five ulcers, and a brain tumor.

Here's something about application processing times.

Thanks. Though I will say that that timeframe's just a little depressing... but I did some looking there and it seems like I can at least try for an application.

*sigh* What a mess. I just hope the INternational Office will allow for proof of application instead of an actual passport. -_-
