Shiny is better.

Got my legal name changed most places it matters now, including with my employer. My passport, which it looks like I might need in May, will take several weeks since I need a new one, given the picture looks nothing like me.
I’m pleasantly surprised with the promptness with which this arrived. And now…I can change my name at work.

@Kabuku I paid $28 for my original RealID-compliant license in TN which is good for 8 years. The same in WA cost $80 and is good for only 6. They only charged me a duplicate fee ($8) to reissue my license with the correct name.
Who knew that removing my ex from my car title would result in getting new tags? Not me, apparently.

At least the car is registered for another 12 months. And, unlike Washington, Tennessee doesn’t charge a lot. Nor did it require a signature from my ex.
Divorce: $ OMGWTF.BBQ!!!!
New Drivers License: $8
New Social Security Card: $0

Finally being rid of a last name I never should have taken in the first place: priceless.

Working an event going on in Singapore is not conducive to the US/Central timezone I currently reside. Thankfully, I only have one more night of this…
@Streakmachine Basically.
The court has moved my "dismissal" date for my divorce from February 6th to March 6th. Let me find my shocked face: 🙄
What a wonderful world. #nowplaying

There's a Dutch word that describes what my ex is doing at the moment: mierenneuken. She's out of excuses for not signing the final paperwork and...about out of time before the court dismisses our divorce and things get...interesting.
Don't you feel it growin', day by day

@Kabuku I’ve read that book. Just remember: progress not perfection.

You gave up too much to turn back now.
