Rock The Vote!

Today, I went to city hall and registered to vote. After I did that, I walked over to our post office and got my passport application in. My very own US Passport! Wow!

Tara made this paper flag at our local art gallery, I was impressed by the size of it. Now that I am American, it IS all about size, right?

  • Fourteen years ago, I entered this country with just two kids, and a H1B visa;
  • Ten years ago, I entered again, with 4.5 kids this time, and a H4 visa, as the spouse of a H1B visa holder;
  • Nine years ago, I entered with a brand new and shiny green card after getting lucky in the diversity lottery; I also had a brand new baby, named Kate;
  • When Kate turned five, I knew I was going to apply for naturalization soon. I had six kids and was pregnant with Sylvia.
  • Life happened, and it wasn't till December that I actually started the process.
  • January 2008, the application arrived at the USCIS office.
  • Today: I am official and registered to vote, and will have my passport soon. What a ride it has been!
