Mulling sommore this morning about the Romanian naturalization process, i had a thought that made me laugh out loud. As is the case with all thoughts that make me laugh out loud, i couldn't wait to share it with Vlad.
i said, “baby, part of the experience of being a Romanian is to have a soul‑crushing encounter with the Romanian government. So either: i'll spend years learning and working and succeed and become a legal Romanian, or i'll be blocked in an arbitrary and discouraging way by an unfeeling bureacracy”
“… and you'll become an actual Romanian!” Vlad finished my sentence.
