2. Got the news that the loan letters will be out in the mail by Monday-ish.
3. Booked my flight.
4. Completed (mostly) my Appendix (the information section) for my visa.
5. Got a letter from the Direct Loans office saying that I've been approved for a Plus loan of the amount of money I need/requested. I need to double check, but I think this is the letter I can use to pass through customs (not the one for my visa, that's being sent out by RVC).
It's all coming together! ACK. Here comes the nervousness. 48 days left here, only 30 days (possibly less) left with EXP.
