Hold Onto Your Dreams










Hold onto your dreams
Not too tightly or it might break,
Not loosely or it might slip away
If you don't have a dream yet, be patient
Your dream will find you

Follow your own star,
There wouldn't be a heaven full of stars
if we were all meant to wish on the same one
Know that there will always dreams
that are grander and humbler than your own
But there there will never be another dream
exactly like yours,
For you are unique and more wondrous than you know.

Always do your best,
There are no shortcuts on the way to a dream
Give all that you have to all that you do
Don't worry i you make a mistake
The only people who never fail are those who never try,
But neither do they ever succeed.

If at times you feel discouraged
Hold onto your dream and believe in yourself
this is all your dream asks of you,
but this is everything.

Hold onto your dreams and God is in-charge with you.

I am not the author of this beautiful piece. 
It just happened that I kept it on my wallet for 5 years and I don't remember where I got it.

CR1 (Spousal Visa) Interview at the US EMBASSY in MANILA

                                                                     *** INSIDE USEM ***





Today I will share my CR1(Spousal Visa) Interview at the US Embassy in Manila, though, it was more than a year ago.

I am from Mindanao, yet, I lived (stayed) in Iloilo City, Philippines during my whole visa process. The National Visa Center (NVC) gave me an appointment ( Interview Sched) at 8:30 AM, January 10, 2012 at the US Embassy in Manila, 1201 Roxas Blvd, Manila 1000, Philippines ( http://manila.usembassy.gov/contact.html )

I flew from Iloilo at noon of January 9, 2012, arrived in Manila in the afternoon and stayed at Hotel Soriente. (http://www.hotelsoriente.com/). Hotel Soriente is 7 to 10  minutes walk to the US Embassy. I preferred to stay in this Hotel because this is where I stayed during my medical. I want to be comfortable a night before my interview and I love this place. 

The night before my interview, I reviewed all my documents and make sure that I didn't forget anything. (But I didn't realized I forget 1 important thing). I prepared my clothes that I will be wearing the next day. I wore skirt, blouse and sandal.
