It’s almost weekend

yes! and I am looking forward to it… :) technically this is my last weekend before my work here is over (well, for the time being!). My visa expires June, 30, which is next Thursday. It”s kind of weird to think that it might be my last week of working at the USGS, although I pretty confident now that I’ll come back after the summer.I sent in my waiver application on Wednesday (and I tracked the FedEx envelope online – it was delivered at the State Department this morning!), so know I am pretty much waiting to get the advisory opinion saying that I am not subject to the two-year home requirement OR get a letter saying that the waiver application has been approved :)
My sponsor is working on my visa stuff, so I can then go to the embassy in Frankfurt and get my H-1B visa. At least I’ve covered all my bases and I think it’s a snowball’s chance in hell that it won’t work out. Nevertheless, I probably won’t stop worrying until I walk out of the embassy with my visa approval ;)

I am planning to book a flight for the end of July. Yeah, I know I should seriously look into that right now (!), but I am still unsure which return date to pick – some time in early September, I hope. So it looks like that I’ll be around for the whole month of August and possibly a little more. I am actually very much looking forward to seeing my family and friends, esp. Sanni, Ilka, Kim and Susi :) we’re going to have such a blast together!

The last two nights we have been cooking and hanging out with Aaron and Maria. Jon is very excited to have his friend around. I can tell :) tonight we’re going to have a BBQ :) oh yeah, and the other good news for the weekend:
I bought tickets today for LIFEHOUSE in San Francisco Saturday night!
Aaron casually mentioned that he had been looking for gigs in SF this weekend and slipped in that Lifehouse is playing. I totally flipped out, because I didn’t know about it – so I checked online for tickets this morning and ordered two for Jon and me :) so we”re going to SF tomorrow! I am so excited!

On this note: Thanks to everyone who voted for Joe on (and don’t forget to vote again this week! Very important!)… he made it to the next round on Wednesday!
The judges were really hard on him and Ashley and they got the lowest points, although I thought their performance was amazing!

But obviously all our advertising paid off and enough people voted over the phone and online… they made it! I am so excited!
