Dear Lindy Ling-Li Tan,

We are happy to send you a housing offer. Please read the attached Word document which is your contract. If you are unable to open the document, please contact the International Office immediately.

I got sent an email a week ago or so that told me that my proposed rental amount was not enough to get me my own bathroom. As an only child, this troubled me some, and my worst fears have come to fruition! OH NOES!

So this place, it’s an apartment for four people, with a shared living and kitching area. It’s really close to the Metro and train station, so that’s good and convenient (considering my lack of bicycle-ness!!). It’s also pretty near to the airport (I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing!) It’s in the Ørestad district, which is apparently quite new and being developed (but also means construction). All in all, I guess it sounds ok?

Maybe I should be a little less pretentious and learn to share. But for now, I am in a dilemma as to what to do. I’m supposed to advise the International Office about whether I choose to accept or not by 1st May. However, there is the (though pretty slight) chance that I’ll be offered a place through this other housing website thing that I’ve been looking at… I think the main thing is, I don’t want to be left with nothing.

My gut instinct is telling me to just accept, because it’s better than living nowhere. And the pictures look pretty enough! Besides, it’s all about embracing new experiences right? And I’ve got to learn to share at some point right?

Note to Beck:

The room is a strictly personal offer for you. You may not have others move in with you. Breach of this is subject to one warning after which the student can be evicted if he/she continues to break this rule.

So if you come… =(

Acceptance package and Visa problems

Anyway, on to another thing. I picked up the acceptance pack that was sent to UTS from UoC on Monday, with a bunch of brochures and things, as well as my Visa application. But lo and behold! They didn’t stamp/sign it, and it appears that the Danish Consulate will not accept that. So it’s another waiting game. I’ve sent them an email, and so has Steven, but I haven’t heard anything back yet… So I guess we’ll see how it goes… Fingers crossed!

Another thing that I need to do is send off the form for my ID card. I have to go and search for those passport photos that I took at the Travel Expo…

Global exchange fair at UTS

Global Exchange Fair is tomorrow! I’m probably going to go to the UoC talk and just see how that goes, and hopefully get to talk to a bunch of the UoC people and see what it’s like and stuff.

Anyway, it’s late (I do NOT know how it got to 2.30!!) and I should be getting to sleep so I can wake up in time tomorrow!

I was thinking the other day, and it’s only 3 months or so til I should leave! I REALLY NEED TO GET ON TO BOOKING MY FLIIIIGHT!
