Civics and all that good stuff.... ubbc#7

Tomorrow is a big day for me, I'm headed to the Homeland Security office in Atlanta to be interviewed and tested as part of my application to become a naturalized citizen of this great nation.
Woaaahhh... I know!
It's all very official and I'm a little nervous to say the least. I have to answer six questions correctly out of ten and they give you 100 questions to study. I hate tests. Everyone I know who has already been down this path assures me I'll be OK and pass with flying colors. Thing is, I get so nervous I can hardly hear the question... like he (or she) may say..."what did you have for breakfast this morning?" and I'll be all like "Georgia, Maryland and Virginia"... whaaattt???????????? or they could say "come in Mrs. M and have a seat" and I'll be spouting the constitution like I wrote the damn thing!!!! How can I control the madness???? They will probably just say, this woman is a freakin' fruit loop, let's send her back on the Mayflower from whence she came!!!! Or they may detain me for further examination thinking I'm some kind of alien... space alien.... Americans love space aliens.... not illegal aliens, they don't like illegal aliens.
I wonder if they have some kind of FBI spy reading this blog? I hope so, then maybe they could come to my defense, like break into the interview and assure the Immigration peep... hey it's OK, I read her blog, she's a good guy and just gets a little nervous when faced with authority and all things official!!!!
Hmmm wonder if it will feel different when I'm an American Citizen??? or will I still be silly old me???

p.s. I'm on FB now... so look to your right... yep over there... now click it and "like" me!!! told you I was gonna learn some new stuff and i did.. yay me.

Cool beans! (Can't think of anything to say that doesn't sound sappy or condescending in leui of your pending citizenship...) I am fairly certain you will still feel just like you! (At least I hope you will!)

I'm planning on becoming a naturalized citizen next year, so I will be interested to see how things go for you! Keep us updated! Oh and I suck at tests too, can know the material inside and completely dry up on the day. I empathize :)
