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 hopefully get a car in the near future.
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 car I felt less Colombian. I guess the fact that I have been undocumented all this time there’s always been this Colombian feel in me and now that I have some sort of United States paper work I feel more American. I wasn’t expecting to feel something like that but it just randomly happened as we left. I don’t ever want to lose my Colombian roots which is why I want to visit so BAD. All I want are the rights I know I deserve.
Any one else feel something like this?
