You guys… I’m so worried about this election… My boyfriend is an immigrant and I love him so so much and if Romney got elected it would pretty much ruin his future. He’s been here, in America, for 11 god damn years (since he was 8), He’s just as “American” as you or I are, except he wasn’t born here. But since his visa expired when he graduated high school, he’s stuck.
He can’t go to college unless he can afford to pay out of state tuition (who the fuck can afford that?), he can’t apply for FASFA, he can’t get a job, nothing. He’s literally stuck until Obama’s executive order “Dream Act” continues forward.
He’s even planning on giving his life to the United States military, but he’s commissioned as an officer so he needs to go to college first. He’s willing to sacrifice so much for this country and if Romney gets elected this country wont give him shit.
And it’s not just him. There’s are millions of immigrants who were brought here as children and are now stuck because of this huge gaping dark spot in the United States immigration policy. People have been waiting for this kind of legislation to pass for years.
I’m so worried and upset and frustrated. I don’t even know what I’m going to do if Obama doesn’t win…
So I started my freshman year at SCAD in Savannah, Georgia a few weeks ago and I’ve been doing pretty well the last month or so but I’m starting to get pretty homesick….
I’m 13 hours away from my home in Indiana and just….
I want my boyfriend, and my best friend Rachel, and to have fall weather and go to bonfires, and go apple pickin then make apple crisp and apple butter, and carve pumpkins, and drink apple cider……
I just want everything from home….
I’m really happy in Savannah and it’s beautiful here and I love SCAD but missing the fall and my friends is really bumming me out.
I feel really sad and alone and basically like the worst person ever. This situation sucks and I wish I had it in me to be okay and be unselfish but I know I can’t be both. Nothing will be okay at this point, especially me. And I’m so unbelievably frustrated and anxious and scared. I don’t know what to do.
Gonna go cry myself to sleep now.
I feel like poop today. I either have a mild flu or a super terrible cold and its really awful. I’m dizzy when I’m standing up, I can’t breath when I lay down, the thought of food makes me nauseous and everything hurts and I have to go work a 7-8 hour shift at goodwill on senior citizen discount Wednesday and I’m going to die.
welp today turned from awesome to bad to absolute shit pretty damn fast.
Get it together. This shit is getting ridiculous.
I think I’m going to go eat ice cream for breakfast now. It will be glorious.
Sooo I just finished closing at my job for 3 nights in a row- Saturday, sunday, and monday and my boyfriend is leaving for a week this afternoon so I have been spending as much time with him as possible. Which doesn’t leave much time for blogging… Sorry guys, I still love you all, I promise. Just been a super busy summer.
In other news: I started dating a new guy roughly a month ago, Luis, and he is honestly the greatest guy I’ve ever met. I could go on for hours about why, but I’m really really genuinely happy for the first time in months.
Senior summer before college is gonna be the best.
