Hatrick

Takze pristi tyden si jedu na americkou ambasadu v Praze pro posledni Work&Travel vizum. Formulare mam vsechny vyplneny na posledni chvili diky agenture Czech-us, ktera to letos nejak nezvladla a misto 4 tydnu jim to trvalo dvojnasobek. A to se jeste chovaji jako lazo plazo. Muj obdiv ma samotna ambasada za pristup k vznikle situaci, kdy ma naval studentu, kteri diky cekani na formular DS2019 (formular diky, kteremu je vam vydano vizum J1) resi pohovor na ambasade na posledni chvili. Proste napisi email o prebookovani pohovoru, protoze uz ted je kalendar navstev az do pulky cervna plny a oni vam vyhovi a jeste ke vsemu takovym milym zpusobem :-) No fakt ode me maji 5 hvezdicek z 5. Takze jsem zvedava zda se i ve stejnem duchu ponese samotny pohovor a vydani viza.
Muj odlet je planovany na 3.6.2013. Kdyz to porovnam s ostanima rocnikama, tak se drzim plus/minus jeden den porad kolem stejneho odletu. je to az k nevire, ze uz jedu po treti! Coz je doporuceni samo o sobe ne? Jestli mate moznost - jedte taky! Cely pobyt splyne v jedno, protoze sice pracujete nekdy do uplneho vycerpani (@workoholici), ale na druhou stranu jste v uplne jinem prostredi. Nejistota a strach prave z tohoto zmizi jakmile vysednete z letadla. Proste se hodite do vody (za oceanem) a placat se nejde.  Proste vam to vase osobnost nedovoli. Zabrednete do kolobehu vydelavani zelenych papirku ($$$), placeni najmu a planovani vyletu. Kde je hacek? V navratu :D Vratite se domu (ani vas nenapadne se navratit, protoze to berete jako soucast hry) a sednete na zadek :D

So next week I'm going to the American Embassy in Prague for the last Work & Travel visa. Forms are all filled in at the last minute thanks to my agency Czech-us, which did not manage it this year, instead of 4 weeks it took them twice. And still behave like nothing bad happened. My admiration alone has the embassy how they are dealing with this situation - being flooded with students who, because of waiting on Form DS2019 (you need this form to get a J1 visa) are trying to get an interview at the embassy at the last minute. You just write them an email to kindly change the appointment date because the calendar is fully booked. The answer is quick and very polite/positive :-) So they are getting 5 stars out of 5. I'm curious if they can keep the score at the interview and when they issue my visa.
My departure is scheduled for June 3, 2013. When compared to the years, I'm keeping the departure date plus/minus a day the same. It is hard to believe that I'm going for the third time! Which speaks for itself  doesn't it? If you have the possibility - go too! The full program is going to merge into one, because sometimes you have to work until full exhaustion (@workaholics), but on the other hand you are in a completely different environment. Uncertainty and fear will disappear once you get out of the plane. You are going to be thrown into the water (the ocean) and can't behave like a crybaby. Your personality won't allow it. You find yourself in the cycle of making green money ($$$), paying the rent and trip planning. Where's the catch? In the return :D You go home (that's completely natural to you, because it's part of the game) and you won't believe where you ended up :D
