Visa application ☑️

Now I can take out of my sight this giant folder filled with application form, graduation certificate, transcript, letters, bank statements, flight ticket, accommodation agreement… in other words, excitement and anxiety. /EN

I was brave enough last night to buy my ticket before knowing when they would issue my visa. The date is October 6!

For pastry to be ready to go on trip, it is October 5. 🙂

I’ll be at Oxford in a month! Some questions in mind: will I have my visa ready on time? Will I be able to fit all my stuff into my suitcases? How will I prevent my mother from filling my luggage with pastry?

I only have one exit on my three passports, but they mean much more than this to me. With the first one, it was the first time I went abroad to Utrecht for exchange. This period that started with anxiety and fear turned into an experiment that I came to know myself.

With the second one, I hoped that I would go to the graduate school, but I could not go anywhere. 🙂 Nevertheless, during the two-year period it was valid, I found myself at my best and worst moments. As I saw it lying around, it reminded me of my goals and dreams.

I got the third one just last month. I feel excited even when I’m just holding it my hands. Thinking about this third passport makes me feel like as if all the winds of the past had been blown here to materialize this object. From this object, they will become the winds of the future and blow to England first, and then God knows where. As they do, the pages will be filled.

Hello, again! 🙂 It’s been a long time since I last wrote! I have been working as a mentor for the last two months at my school and spending time with the closest ones. My excitement that was consumed during the campaign reappeared while the new semester is getting closer and closer. So, I want to share with you the news and my road map.

My registration is about to be complete after a long (e)mailing traffic with the university. I will soon have my e-mail address with the “ox.ac.uk” extension! I am now waiting for a final confirmation letter (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) for the visa application. I have already satisfied the requirements for this.

I also learned where I’d stay in Oxford. I’ll have a small, cute room in my college’s dormitories. There’s even a fake fireplace with an electric heater on it. Since I’ll want to spend time in this room, I try to get myself accommodated to studying at home instead of library.

I will be sharing more news as soon as I learn them. I can’t wait to hear your news too. 🙂
