This has been the worse week so far. I get offered a job at Sears and I they tell me I need to submit some documents such as my drivers license and social security card. I find that I no longer have my social security card and have no idea where it is! So I go to the social security office to get a new one and find out that my green card expired six years ago!!! I start freaking out thinking they are going to deport me or something. I go to the immigration office and find out that they can't put a validation stamp on my passport until I sent in the paperwork and get a receipt. That takes two weeks!!! That stamp only lasts 90days. I have to wait for my new green card, which will take anywhere from 3months to be processed and sent. Meanwhile my very caring parents (sacastically) never filed my citizenship when I was younger, so I could get automatic citizenship. Instead they are making me wait months to get my renewed green card and then apply for citizenship which will take over a year to process. Many things could go wrong during that processing and I might not even get it. After it is processed I have to go the immigration building in chicago to take an exam and an oath and the line I heard starts from blocks away. So i'm without a social security card, without a green card and without proof I can even stay in this country. All thanks to my wonderful parents for not evening filling up a simple form earlier when I was underage, so it could make my life a little simpler. My mother is a citizen and my brother is a citizen. They will never have to deal with this crap. This week has been an absolute nightmare i'm just waiting for the sky to fall on me. Whats the point I might as well not even exist without these documents. I can't get any jobs right now because I have no documentation at all. Permanent residency my ass, there are no benefits unless you are a US citizen. I have been living here for 16 years and my parents couldn't have taken a couple hours of their time to apply for my citizenship? I guess i'm just not that important.
