You know what sucks? Being responsible for someone else’s visa!

Let me explain. As I mentioned before, T is off in Canuk land. In order to come back, he needs to get something called a J-1 Visa which is an internship visa. Basically, it allows him to come here for 18 months to do a kind of work/study thing. The idea is at a the end of the 18 months, he goes back to Toronto and shows off his new, American skills. Obviously it’s just a means to get him here. In 18 months, I’ll think about the old ball and chain. I’m just not ready now to be a green card bride.

Well I, always the one willing to help volunteered to look for said internship. Now his parents won’t get off my back. I made about 400 phone calls, edited T’s resume and pulled in a bunch of favors. Now it’s in T’s hands and he’s not really doing all he should do to get this done. But somehow this is my responsibility. His parents won’t stop emailing or calling me. This is not my responsibility! Of course I want to help but there is very little I can do at this point. I’ve set the foundation and T needs to follow up.

My mom was here this weekend and it turns out that my brother is about to pop the question. Now I don’t know if I’ve brought it up before, but we’re not crazy about the girl. She’s boring, manipulative and frankly, not that cute. Mostly though, she’s boring and she doesn’t speak. But my brother says he loves her and we’re going to have to support him. Ugh, I hate being supportive when I really don’t want to be.

Anyway all of this got me thinking about my impending engagement. I mean, T hasn’t popped the question but we have talked about it. We both decided that it is not a good idea to get married to get him back in the country (although I do miss him so much that at this point, I would). So I tried to kind of bring it up with my mom and she immediately shot it down. Basically she said that T was not in a place financially to get married. I’m a little worried he never will be at her standards. I mean, look, both my parents are lawyers and haven’t really had to struggle much. Here T and I are, 2 artists and nowhere near making what my brother or his sister (who is also getting married and also a lawyer). Anyway, as I said, I’m not actually getting married (or even engaged) any time soon so it really isn’t an issue. It’s just something (horrifying) to think about.
