Default FINALLY got approved...

For anyone on here who cares, I am holding my approval letter. I've been waiting for so long that I really thought my reaction would be different but here I am with my "welcome to the United States" letter in my hands and although I am so glad it's finally happened after over 8 years of waiting...it just doesn't feel like I thought it would. Has my spirit been broken or has it just not sunk in yet? Oh well, so, here it is. God bless. I hope you all get lucky sooner rather than later, too.

Yeah, I've gone to a ton of infopass appointments, maybe this is a pity approval to stop me from going there so much. Seriously though, earlier this year I went to an infopass appointment and the guy there said they'd lost something like 13 employees since the beginning of the year. I think this was about May. So, in 5 months they lost 13 employees. That's huge. I think many of us are upset and thinking they're not doing their jobs, or are for some reason purposely working slowly on these cases or whatever, just basically blaming the organization for the slowness of it all but if the infopass guy was honest about them losing so many people in only 5 months, then it is obvious the problem lies in the fact that they are understaffed and overworked. On one hand I feel like I lost a huge chunk of my life and I could have done so much more with myself if this had been over sooner, but on the other hand, I feel sorry for them, too, it just seems like they're trying hard to hold it together.

Default its a shame..

its a shame to US, that one of their governmental departments are working so lousily and they have no one to question them. its a shame. i am proud to say that even government agencies in india these days are working much better than these. beauracratic issues in the government agencies makes me puke.
