This is not design related, but I just want to share with you because it is a HUGE deal, at least for me. Today, on the anniversary of 9/11, I received my green card in the mail! After being in America for 12 years (3 years of studying and 9 years of working), I finally got real freedom, freedom that most people take for granted. It was a long journey... and it wasn't easy. I am so excited and and so grateful, for I'm finally an official part of this country. Next step: citizenship in 5 years.
I haven't seen most of my family for more than 11 years because traveling is just a big hassle (and risk) for me. Now I think I might have a travel to plan in the near future. :)
