Rough day!

Have to go to LA to get visa.
No open appointments til’ July 31st.
Takes 1-3 months to process.
Expected to leave for Germany first week of August.
Totally not wanting to spend $300 on a one-day plane ticket.
Confused with life.
Why is the German consulate so busy? How many other Americans are taking off to Germany?
Totally lame. Somehow it’ll all work out, but at this moment I have no clue how.
