So I decided to go back to school in a place I never even really heard of. I got two weeks til I ship off to Estonia and about a week to get everything I need together. People say "you're crazy" or "you've got a lotta balls to do that". And I say you're right-about the second part. But everyone is crazy right? I'm setting up this blog for whoever thinks of coming to the Baltic countries but mainly in Tallinn, Estonia where I will be spending the next 3 school years studying audio visual media at the Baltic Film and Media school. But before any of that can take place I gotta get a student Visa. The Estonian Consulate- uhhh not so helpful with these matters, In fact any time I call them its str8^ attitude city...I am just polite and since I don't know them and they certainly don't know me I let things slide and take her easy. Today's task has been an exercise in repetitive BS. I went to work and came home within 3 hours typical government contract stuff. And now I'm waiting on the coveted dorm room in Estonia. Without the dorm room there can be no insurance provided and without the insurance there can be no student visa and my dream dies before it even starts. The funny thing about Insurance over there is that its cheaper than over here(USA) I mean a year of insurance is 500 bucks for basic coverage, which is all a lotta people need anyway check ups, physicals...That's part of the reason for me going there to see what else the world has to offer good and bad. Well follow this blog tell me what you think or don't but if you check this then you can see what I'm doing without worrying about my 7 hour time difference.
