Diversity Disappointment

2 May


When I moved to the suburbs, I threw my hat in the ring for the DV Lottery for 2014.  This is a lottery that gives you pretty much a free ride straight into the U.S of A and bypasses all the crap associated with trying to enter the US via work visas ect.

Well, I thought I was in for a good chance and started dreaming * a little bit * of where I would live and the places I would go. 

But logging on this morning, my dreams were crushed.  I was not successful.

Ultimately, this is not the end of the world. There is another draw in October and I can always try again next year.  What’s so upsetting is the 6 months of dreaming and the short term demise of those dreams.

I’m stuck in suburbia for the short term, so it’s time to think of a new dream and cross every finger and toe that my number comes up in October draw.
