Life Updates / Immigration Questions

How is everyone?

Things have been hectic for me. Over the past 2 years, there have been so many milestones that I have met in my life that I could only have dreamed of. The American Dream is still alive… at least for me. From getting our own house, to buying a car (albeit a second hand 80’s car that I have always wanted ever since I was a kid), working 2 jobs (1 in a respectable and known company), being able to pay the bills and support myself – working hard has reaped so many benefits for me personally, that I can’t think of anything else except to work extra harder.

To all my friends that had the same journey as I did, how are you doing now? I hope you are having a satisfying life, even though at times it seems that it could be better. Please post below and tell me something about your life here in the US, life updates. 🙂

I can’t complain. If I did complain, the only complaint that I have would be being so far away from my family. But even in my point of view, I think it’s a very valid complaint, but something that I try not to dwell upon too much as I try to visit every year.

So, right now, it’s the 25th of June. Exactly a month and 1 day from now, on July 26, I will be having my church wedding in Tagaytay, Philippines, which I am very excited/stressed about. (cue the wedding music!) Working all the double shifts and overtimes just to pay for the wedding.. but it will be all worth it. I will be posting pictures here as it happens next month. My husband and I are very excited. We are only worried about our 2 dogs and who they are going to stay with for 3 weeks. We are still trying to find an answer for that.

I know a lot of people have left comments on my immigration posts asking for help with their own process. I hope the process went as smoothly for you as it did for us. To some people who have posted questions asking for help, there are some things that I have forgotten already. Like I have said before, I am not a professional, I am not a lawyer of the immigration process nor am I paid for anything that I post. I only post guides to help other people who are going through the same process as I am. So, if I haven’t replied to any of your questions, it may mean that I honestly don’t know the answer or have forgotten. If I did give advice that may have mislead you, I’m sorry. Like I said, I am not an expert. My guides are as thorough as I can write them, and hopefully it can help you.

Much love,

Imigranteng Filipina
