Today, Thursday, November 6, 2008 marks the day that I, officially, is no longer an Alien! No, I'm not from Mars. I don't look green, I'm actually brown. I didn't get injected with Anti-Alien vaccine to eliminate my monstrous alien qualities- none of those at all - but yes, I'm no longer an Alien! - to the Immigration that is - but the transition didn't go uneventful like I hope it would...
Half-way down to my Citizenship interview, the fire alarm went off and we all scurried down the halls like Speedy Gonzales trying to get out of the building. Dang! I was so close - so close... "Was I going to come back on a later date?" All my files are inside the building in the verge of getting burnt! I was panicking deep within- not with the fire that may have been amidst us but the fact that geez, I was so close to the end, only to get all this unwarranted delays and suspense! Not to say the fear of having to re-submit all my paperworks! I gave up work just to be there and that is how it will end! dang!
Fortunately, it was a false alarm. We went back inside the building gathered like scared chickens! Sigh! NO, BIG SIGH! Ok, things are looking promising afterall. Imagine me screaming inside me saying: "let it stay this way until I actually sign those freaking papers!"- so I did! My ceremonial oath-taking will be on Dec. 1st. I, at least have something to look forward to. So as of today, this silly Asian, is finally a Citizen of the US! - now, don't ask me if I'm happy about it. I might tell you a different story :) - I actually plan on writing a book about my Immigration journey. Hmmm...another thing for me to go crazy about.
Anyway, for some crazy update...where the heck was I? Why wasn't I blogging as much? Not twittering, Not social networking at all...what the heck was I doing? - Well, for those who want to know, I am currently riding another storm in our life. When will this storm ever end?! Sigh! when it rains, it does pour! We currently have a category 4 hurricane ravishing our life right now.
Remember not too long ago, my hubby lost his job and still is unemployed to this date? And that if it wasn't bad enough, my employer decided to scale my job down to Part-time! Talk about freaking unfair! yeah my employer is aware but he chose to hack me. So now, I feel like I'm inside a big swirl and kind of lost. Darn, so much drama in my life! Can someone make a sob movie out of my life story?! The proceeds will go to our Food bank! Thank you! dang!
I'm not sour- maybe a bit- I'm human afterall. I so need a miracle! I don't even want to think about Christmas. Can you blame me?!
