Today is the day,
Today is the day I can say.
About 8 months ago, the process began. My fight to stay in Russia began, and was I ever the underdog in this situation. At times I thought they made the process impossible on purpose. It seemed like the country tried to do what it can to get me to give up the idea of getting my temporary residence. I admit some mistakes where made by me misunderstanding and failing to dig deeper for information, but thanks to some people who genuinely put their efforts into making sure everything gets done, I can finally relax (barely) but at least have that off of my shoulders and not have my wife worry about me leaving her for another 3 months. I can finally concentrate on moving forward without worrying about being stunned again.
I genuinely like this country no matter whats being said and how things are being handled. The peoples attitude mirror a very realistic and human way of being. I feel at home here.
I might not have any friends here but my wife is all I need and I’m meeting new people and slowly making connections even thought I’ve never been one to do so. It helps that I work with people now instead of with milk, in a warehouse. Milk has its percs, I enjoyed being able to get lost in my thoughts and just work throught my shift but wokring with people is more satisfying. Human to human relations force me to work on my speech and my people skills.
Forces me to put aside being shy.
One of my worst qualities.
I am getting better though. I can see the progress and i’m liking it. I think this blog is also in a way that I work with that even though I don’t really have to speak to anyone face to face, I still get things out. I must say, I read my posts and it looks like I have horrible structure and my thoughts spread into multiple unrelated branches.
But hey, its a learning process. I just hope it’ll also improve.
