My lovely cats woke me up at 4:30am this morning and for some reason I can't get back to sleep. So, instead I watched part 2 of Single Father and am now in a funny mood.

Single Father talk with some spoilers )

Edit: I forgot the other thing I wanted to mention. That self-indulgent fic I was talking about last time? It's up to around 7,500 words. 17 pages in MSWord. This is officially the longest thing I've ever written, and I'm not even halfway through yet. It's so strange to me as well, because I'm just letting it flow. I have everything worked out (more or less) in my head and am just writing it all down as if I'm dictating. I've never written like this before and I think it's because I've never LET myself. Either way, I'm very pleased with how it's going.

In other news, I looked into getting a work visa for the UK and learned that I'm probably not going to qualify. It's a point-based system that you have to answer questions for, and I only made 80 points. Granted I didn't fill in the question about the money I've earned in the past 15 months, but that's because technically, according to my government, I've really only made about $2000. The rest is in a non-taxable scholarship form... which I don't think counts. I haven't added it up, yet anyway. Also, they require a sum of about $5000 to be in my bank account for a period of no less than 3 months and not dropping below that amount. Which I don't have... though I could potentially dodge that hurdle with my mom's help. She said she'd be willing to help with that, anyway.

This is seriously depressing me though, because if I don't qualify, I don't go. While it's not a firm block right now, it's enough to make me realize that I need to start thinking about other things as well, instead of only planning for this. But I'd really sorta placed a lot of hope on this move, it feels like now is the right time, and being denied of completing a life-long dream only because of the concept of money is very sad. The thought of staying in theatre in America is so less appealing now... especially because it doesn't feel like it would be nearly as big of an adventure.

I even looked into the fact that I have English blood in my heritage to see if I could qualify for something different like that, but that only counts if it's a parent or grandparent. I guess John Alden of the Mayflower is a bit too far back, huh.
