Freiburg

So, I guess I can stay.

Living with the idea that, at any moment, you could get notice that you have to leave the country fills one with a giant hollow feeling of insecurity. The thought of having to pick up and move your entire life at a moment's notice weighs on you. It's no small thing.

Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you want to look at it, it actually was one of the smaller concerns I have had to deal with over the last few months. One of which I touched on yesterday.

Even something as serious as that had become mere background noise. So it is.

Today, I got news that my visa extension has been approved. My general policy is to never celebrate until the fat lady sings. But, right now, I'm willing to celebrate the fact that I didn't get notice that I would have to fight the immigration office just to even be able to stay in Germany. I'll celebrate a little more when the card is in my hand. One thing at a time.

It's the little things in life, it always has been. Even when those little things aren't so little.
