The First Step in Preparing to Go

So luckily I already have my passport or right now that would be the first thing that I would need to be doing in preparation to go to Taiwan. But since I already have that my next first step is applying for my visa. I have kind of been lazy and putting off going and doing it, but today I had an extra hour and a half so I took my paperwork for visa application and headed to the Kennedy Center for International Studies and went to talk to Mary Lou, whom Nancy the current intern had suggested to go talk to. As luck would have it, as I was heading that way I ran into Natalie in the bookstore, I asked her what she was doing and asked if she wanted to go with me. She grabbed lunch and then we headed over to the Kennedy, we went and tried talking with Mary Lou but found out that she is in Germany and would not be returning until Sunday. So we made an appointment to meet with her on Tuesday afternoon, we found out that it would be a lot better idea to make an appointment rather then just try and come in, especially as the semester is drawing to an end, people are all wanting to make flights to places. So I guess that now I don't feel so guilty, I have started the ball rolling and hopefully it will all go very quickly.
