Good news! I received my Student Visa and US Passport back today. I can hardly believe how quick it came back. I am thrilled to begin the next part of the journey – finding housing! This part of the experience has been a stress point for me. I found a cute little flat with a blue door online today. I am adding it to my list of prospectives. Hopefully everything will continue to fall into place. Wish me luck finding the perfect UK dwelling!
