Brexit / EU Citizenship
In the wake of Brexit, I wonder what the fastest way to EU citizenship would be for a British citizen, without needing a separate visa.
1. Move to Ireland (5 years to naturalize)
2. Move to Scotland and await IndyRef2
3. Move to Northern Ireland and await unification
I *think* Ireland's the safest bet, but I wouldn't be surprised to see NI beat Scotland to the punch on timelines.
I'm very embarrassed and can't stop thinking about this.
Alright, Fediverse, what are some good recipe websites that aren't... awful like most recipe websites?
SimplyRecipes.com was a favorite of mine for over a decade, but the ads are finally starting to metastasize now that Elise sold it to Fexy Media.
I feel like SmittenKitchen.com is all I have left for #recipes. Help?
1. Should I read the Wheel of Time series?
2. Will I be able to finish it before George R.R. Martin releases The Winds of Winter?
(Semi-related: Jeff VanderMeer's unsettling Southern Reach Trilogy was my favorite read of 2019; I would highly recommend it, along with the movie Annihilation, to anyone. Very, very disquieting. In a good way.)
One downside: despite holding an American license for over 15 years, I'm still treated as a "new driver" here, and can't go faster than 45 MPH for a full year.
So that's cool.
Didn't want no motorways anyways.
Despite stalling all over Belfast for the past week, I'm really proud of myself for learning how to drive a manual transmission since we've moved here.
It's been super cool to feel that transition from complete lack of control to early mastery. Like, suddenly I have new intuition and muscle memory that didn't exist at all a few months ago! In a real, tangible domain! It's been a long time since I've learned a genuinely new physical skill.
...Northern Ireland is really strange this time of year.
I like computers.
