well that's a bitch!
    #4522008 - 08/11/05 02:45 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

well, as many of you probably know, i've been planning to move to vancouver in a few weeks here. yesterday, i went to the canadian consulate in detroit, to see about getting my student visa. and the woman tells me that they won't give me one, because of a DUI i have on my record.  :eek: what, what, what?! i said. we had a long discussion, and then i came back to kalamazoo and talked to my old lawyer and probation officer. they say there is no chance to get the crime expunged from my record, so basically the only hope is that somebody in the canadian consulate will break the rules and give me the visa anyhow. i'm going to go back there next week with some documents from the probation officer saying that i've completed my probation, served my time, paid my fines, etc etc - and see what they can do.

otherwise.... fuck.

(on the plus side, i'm listening to talking heads 77 and that's always nice. ok that's a really tiny plus side, but still)

Shit man, that fucking sucks.  What were the details of the DUI?  How long ago did it happen?  Did your lawyer give you any idea of what the chances are of this working out?

:sad: I hope you don't end up in limbo dude, but then you can just come to NYC and go to school here.

basically, my lawyer said there is no chance at all of things working out. i'm trying not to get down about it - will exhaust every option that i have available, and see what i can do. if all fails, i'll stay in michigan for a year, work my ass off, save up as much money as possible, and then go to school somewhere next year (hahaha 4 years late, then! :wink: ).

ha i guess i should change my "location" now...

cheeky little monkey.

by the by, now that i probably won't go to vancouver, i'll probably come to NYC in the fall some time - my friend Matias will move there from Copenhagen for the fall semester, so i'll probably come to visit him, as well as relatives in upstate new-york - so we can hang out then! *wink wink nudge nudge* hehe :wink:

Anywhere on the West Coast, really. Oregon and Washington are nice, and even in SoCal there's a few cool spots.
