I Have My Passport

Mar 1, 2005 by glennji

Just a quick entry, since I’m at work: I have my passport!

It arrived by registered mail last weekend, and I haven’t let it out of my sight yet. You really can’t overestimate the psychological wellbeing that this little booklet brings - it is my pass to another world and another life. A bit melodramatic, but that’s how it feels.

I couldn’t wipe the grin off my face if I tried.

Now that I’ve got a way to get in, I just need a way to stay. My cousin Tamara has our grandmother’s birth certificate, but I’m not sure how I’m going to be able to get it from her (I think it’s in storage somewhere) so I might need to get another one. Which I can of course pass on to sister Dayna when she wants to come over.

I might post my passport picture when I get a chance.

After too many years, I’m finally building myself a NAS: network-attached storage, a device for backing up files, photos, and all the data that is otherwise in the cloud. Say goodbye, FANGs, I’m going self-hosted.

I guess I should update the ‘blog?1 Not an easy thing to do these days, since even finding the time to do something as self-indulgent as public journaling probably just means there’s something else I could be doing instead, but maybe it’s an experiment I would like to continue?
