I can not believe its almost 7 years already since I came here to the U.S. It was football season and I have no idea what football was until I saw it on television. The first time I saw a football game on television I thought it was crazy. Why are they running around from each other and chasing the ball to get it into the end zone? To me it was cheesy and makes me dizzy trying to figured out what they’re doing on the field. Of course, Doug was a football coach during the time I came here in the U.S., so he explained to me everything though I still could not understand it.
Every weekend we watched football games whether its college or NFL games and so far I am enjoying watching the games. The most exciting games was when we watched the games at the stadium in Columbia, Missouri, and Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs. Well, this year hopefully we can watch another Mizzou football games in Columbia, or even here at school where Doug, teaches at. Its more entertaining and fun to watch the game at the stadium rather than television. The crowd goes wild when the home team scores a touchdown.
Of course, the loud music playing is just like a party already and who doesn’t like seeing those cheerleaders dancing and the marching band during halftime? Anyway, I was organizing my magazines and noticed printouts about, A Guide to Naturalization. Since I already lived here for nearly 7 years (5 years minimum) as a Permanent Resident, I am eligible to apply for Naturalization if I want to become a U.S. Citizen. Changing my citizenship is also one of the biggest decision on my life.
Doug, has always encouraged me to change my citizenship over the years but I was the one who’s ignoring it. I also worried about the test so I must prepare for this before I say lets do it and get it done. These questions are easy as long as I am prepared before the test. There are 10 questions out of 100 and I must answer 6 out of 10 questions. Filing and biometric services fee are $680.00 total. If I don’t pass the test it would be just a total waste of money. Its not like okey, come back again next month until you pass the test.
Well, I do really have plenty of time to read and study all these questions before I apply for my Naturalization. For the meantime I will not worry about changing my citizenship when the right time comes, I’ll do it.
