Good news: The Hong Kong government approved my employment visa late last week.
Bad news: To activate the visa, I have to enter the country with it; however, TIME won’t be able to get it to me in the U.S. before I leave. That means after I pick up the visa from the Hong Kong TIME office, I’ll have to take a day trip to Macau and gamble for the day. Good thing I’m flush with babysitting cash.
Life’s tough, eh?
