I also went to get my permit a couple days ago and failed because of one stupid sign lol it’s...
After literally a year I finally got my Colombian cedula. I could have probably gotten it a couple months ago but we were just to lazy to get it, plus it’s not like I can do anything with it here so I wasn’t in much of a rush to get it. Only reason i wanted it was because I wanted to see how it would look haha but I’m pretty glad I was finally able to get it even thought I...
White coworker: You're really good at this job but I gotta admit it still bothers me when people like you come to this country & take jobs from real Americans.
Me: Where do you think I'm from?
Coworker: I don't know what you are, but I know you're something. What are you?
Me: Native American.
Coworker: Oh... then I guess you didn't come here, huh?
OMG you guys are not going to believe what happened to me today. OK so I have a little Vera Bradley id wallet thingy and in it i had my bus fare card, my college id, my WORK PERMIT CARD, and a couple dollars and today without noticing I accidentally left it on the bus as I got off. I went most of the day without noticing until I went to put my phone in the pocket that I normally but the wallet in...
Here We Go Again: It's Colombia, NOT Columbia
univisionnews: Image and gentle reminder, via Terra By ALEX ALVAREZ Guys. We need to talk. And we realize that, you being you and us being us, we might be preaching to the choir a little here, but hopefully, with a little internet magic, we can spread this message faster than a video of baby sloth handing a woman a flower. And that message is this: Colombia, the country, is spelled like...
Social came in the mail today :) now all I have to do is wait until my birthday so I can go to the DMV to get my license which is in about a month and a half. I’m not sure if I’ll go back to the restaurant I was working at now that I have a real social due to the fact that I want to focus on my school work but on the other hand I really want to be making some type of money to save and...
oedipusrexrexrex: vasundharaa: it’s funny how when a white person decides to learn a foreign language and move to another country, he’s lauded for his sense of adventure, multiculturalism, appreciation of diversity and god knows what else but when a person o,f colour does the same thing it’s all “fucking immigrants stop stealing our jobs go back to ur own country!111!!!” THIS YES OMG
I went to the Social Security office to finally apply for my social and it was super simple. When we got there I didn’t expected it to be so full, I waited about 30 minutes until I was called to the window and then I showed the lady my papers and it took her about 5 minutes to put me in the system and finish. It was weird leaving tho, I don’t know why but right when I sat back in the...
weasleyowl: sinidentidades: Illegal being turned into a noun is by far the most ruthlessly effective way to dehumanize and demonize an entire group of people, which is why it is propagated by mass media and politicians to vilify these people as outsiders and aggressors of the state to justify the systematic abuse and exploitation these people are faced with on a daily basis. YES

Top 5 Things To Do While You Wait For Your DACA...
juansescalante: Filed your Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) application for but have not heard back? Don’t fret, you’re not alone. If you look at the most recent* reports from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) regarding DACA, you’ll notice that two things are going on with the application process: There hasn’t been as many applicants as originally...
I have finally had some time to fix up my blog. I changed the theme and pretty much wrote a new “about me”. I like it a lot more than before although I still might change the background color, I don’t know to what tho. any suggestions? also let me know what you guys think of my new “about me” :)
This morning I decided to check my DACA application online and I finally saw that I have been approved! Of course it would get approved on the day I didn’t check it, which was yesterday. When I checked it today I really wasn’t even expecting it to have been approved just because every other time I checked it it was always at initial review. So now I have to wait until I get the...

I love all the support I get on here from you guys, I know you guys don’t know who I am but in all honesty you guys know me more than some of the people I know in real life because I actually tell you guys about my issues and problems. I know I haven’t been posting as much as I used to a couple months ago but I plan on posting more often, even if it’s just little things. I also...
pollymoon asked: If I were you, I'd sign up for email updating on the USCIS website and forget about checking every day. Checking everyday just gives you anxiety. Be patient because although it's been a long time, the deadline for getting approved is set at 6 months. I read in a forum I visit people that took 5 months to get approved. Just hang in there, the day you least expect it, you'll get it....
ernestineee asked: Hey, I know the feeling. My application was received September 17th, biometrics on October 24th and still nothing. It's so hard wanting to move forward with life but not having a license or work permit is a major setback. Hopefully things happen soon. Stay strong. :)
USCIS received my DACA application back in September 14th, 2012. I had my fingerprint appointment on October 16th, 2012 and it is now January 13th, 2013 and I still have yet to get my work permit. I don’t understand why it is taking so long, I should have gotten it by now and it’s starting to get really irritating that it is taking so long. I’m really hoping that I have...

futureinlimbo: my-dreaming-existence: Including my sister’s. I’ve been told that siblings at the CSC tend to get approved rather quickly after each other. Until she gets approved though, every single sound in the house sounds like a text message. I hope I get it too. <3 ya.
