Adventure! Intrigue! Get it today for the low price of $99.99!

I had to think of a catchy title to entice my readers to forgive my prolonged absence and pick their way across my disheveled thoughts. In my defense, I hate school, so I spend a lot of time procrastinating but trying to really start doing schoolwork, then the rest of my time actually doing schoolwork, working furiously before the deadline. But I digress, alas the real reason for this post.

I have a scheme, that this spring, I will learn about globalization in the engineering and technology field, in Nanjing, China. This application process required obtaining a passport which I had never obtained before. It seems to me that the majority of the populous runs a lot of errands on Saturdays, but apparently not enough of the populous does to make the post office passport services stay open for longer than two hours of the day. Regardless, a mailing of a birth certificate, photos taken, two weeks of waiting, and one Saturday line later, I have this little puppy. I didn't think much of it, but I got it in the mail today and now that this little scheme is tangible, I can't help but be a little excited. And, in reality, I probably won't get enough money to go, but now I have a passport, so that's pretty cool, right?
