1 word of advice, DO NOT crash your car, especially with a passenger. It has been a terrible week so far. Crash, trouble with Visa for Holidays, uncertainties in PhD application.
I have been wading through knee deep in forms for personal injury and damages to 3rd party's car. Paying towing fees and fines. Hopefully the insurance will honour the claims and I will not be in debt for the next few years. Also hopefully no demerit points will be taken and I will keep my provisional licence.
The visa may just get delayed enough for me to be unable to get it before I go on holidays, canceling half of it and hitting me with the hotel bill where I will not be staying. It is just not my week.
