And just this morning, my long awaited passport and biometric application finally arrived. Seven months ago (yea, that's how long I waited for it), I went to Home Office to have my name changed. I wasn't able to do it right after our marriage because we have to gather other requirements for the application. So for those months, I got no ID, which means I can't apply for provisional driving license, can't take the exams necessary for my next visa application, I can't travel outside the country. Basically, I can't do anything until I got my papers back. For now, I'm just glad I got them back then I can move on with my life. Not bad to start the new year, eh?
