It irks me when people give you negative advice. You know, instead of giving useful, positive, constructive / character-building advice they tell you :
“Oh, but you’re young and single, so I think your US visa will be rejected”.
Er, I don’t need that sort of advice, thank you very much.
My response to that [cause I was infinitesimally pissed – who wouldn’t be?!] :
Yes, I’m 24. Yes, I’m single. But what do you want me to do, ask my boyfriend or a friend to register a scam marriage just to help me along the way? Wouldn’t that be WORSE?
I am going to Las Vegas just to be a teacher, not to usurp resources from another country and get a green card. I am a citizen of a country I love and would be honoured to teach yoga WHEREVER I can. So, yes, I know the odds are stacked against me [young, cute, single, eligible bendy, HAH!], but I have honest intentions, and that’s what I hope the interviewer at the US Embassy will see.

p.p.s : Props to Foo for putting up with me again, and putting me up again. Do you have enough toilet paper ready for my arrival?
