I wanted to just write to say that I am in a lot of trouble. I will only deal with the most immediate one of them.
I am a PhD student in Germany. Last year, I was hit by a car and entered a long coma. I was not conscious for almost five months. They operated on me. I woke up at home.
Now because I did not pay my fees for last semester, there is a legal process to deport me from the "Schengen Zone" i.e. from mainland Europe. Without a student visa, I have no excuse for being in Germany. My legal guardian is trying to fight this legally, but there is a high chance that I will be deported from Europe before getting my PhD.
The law of averages is working against me. Germans do not want more Arabs or whomever coming in and breaking laws, etc. Germany cannot show favouritism in countries except in the case of the EU. I was born in China, came in after my Ma in the Czech Republic, but am a Canadian. No exceptions for me.
I did not even know that I had to pay for the next semester. As a PhD student, I do not go to regular classes anyway. I basically wrote last semester off because of the virus. There was no prospect of this thing subsiding, so even if I had paid my fees on time, it looked like I was paying for nothing. But the simple answer is that I just forgot. Too many things on my plate simultaneously... all out of other bad things are happening to me at the same time as this. Everyone wants me to stay, so I still hope that this will be resolved somehow.
I heard that if I am expelled from continental Europe, they wanted to keep me out until my medical issues were resolved. I do not even know about my medical issues. Because of this virus lockdown thing, I have not been able to go back to the hospital that operated on me to ask what if anything I should do.
That is another way that the law of averages is working against me. They have a minimal time period in which you have to live in Germany before you could get a German passport. You have to give up your previous citizenship, unless again, if you are a citizen of the EU and some other exceptions, none of which I qualify for. I am used to living here and there. I am 34 now. Lived in China for 7 years, Canada for 14 years, Germany for 7 years, Czech Republic for 3 years, England for 1 year, and you have to round the numbers up a bit. I speak every language of the countries I just listed, but those are only half of the languages I know....I just read that Germany votes against more immigration. No doubt they are against so many Arabs coming here and breaking laws. There has never been anyone like me, but since Germany has to follow that law of averages, I might fall victim to it. It is in the books, I was just informed today. The only way out, that we could think of at the time, was to have a sham marriage with someone from the EU. I do not know the legal status now, I hope that this thing is resolves itself somehow, but it is looking terrible for me... this thing pulled onto of all my other present problems.
