Citizenship....

This past Saturday, I received a letter from the INS (or its current incarnation, ICE) informing me that I have an interview scheduled on March 25th. I applied for citizenship back here... it's been almost a year, but I heard that there was a big increase in applications at the time because of the looming fee increase...
This is literally the most important interview of my life thus far. I can't think of anything I want more than to be counted as an American citizen, and if I blow it - I can't even contemplate that...
My parents told me that they were sworn in within 2 hours of their interview - would that it goes as smoothly for me! So, hopefully, all goes well on the big day and I don't blow it.
I'm pretty nervous about this. Wish me luck...

Do you think that "e pluribus unum" is Latin for "You ain't the boss of me!"?

Do you kind of snicker inside whenever you see foreigners doing silly things like kneeling in front of people wearing funny hats?

When you see someone doing something that you may find odd or repulsive, do you just shrug your shoulders and say "Eh. It's a free country."?



If you answered "Yes" to all three questions, then you're already an American, no matter what anyone says or where you live.

Tell 'em I said so.
