You had to be careful when you didn't have papers. Some of us had secret names and birthdates. In the same breath, my mom would talk about how so-and-so's husband was deported and the frijoles on the stove. I thought it was part of being Mexican. One summer my best friend started crying in of front me because she kept having nightmares about her dad being deported. 'It's not going to happen,' I said, but my words felt small and inconsequential.' - words & art by @nerdybrownkid 🌻 #migrant#immigration#resilience#resistance#MigrationIsBeautiful#NoOneIsIllegal#RiseUpAsOne
The new leader, #SebastianKurz , 31, swept to power last week and has been formally asked by President #AlexanderVanderBellen to forge a team.
Mr Kurz finished first in Sunday's election after he secured 31.5 per cent of the vote, winning by a clear margin but falling well short of the majority needed to control parliament in the affluent Alpine republic.
He said: “I would like to build a government that has the courage and determination to bring real change to #Austria . He campaigned on a platform that combined a hard line on #immigration similar to that of the #farright Freedom Party (FPO) with traditional conservative principles like slimming down the state and cutting taxes. Mr Kurz, who is the current #foreignminister in the outgoing government, is on track to become Europe's youngest leader.
The likeliest coalition partner for his Austrian People's Party is the right-wing, anti-immigration Freedom Party. Sebastian #telegenic look was helpful in his rise to power but he is a patriotic Austrian in the mold of #presidenttrump#determined to take back the country from the #globalist#scumbags who wanted no #border n were hellbent on allowing the #Islamization of #Europe . #hunk#hotnumber#patriotic #😘😘😘💋💋💋💋❤️❤️❤️#chancellor to be if #Austria could rise from the ash to throw all scumbags under the bus, there is hope for #California 🙏🙏🙏
Русский перевод 🇺🇦 🇷🇺 ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Remember I promised you to write more about things I do NOT like in SA? 😉 Haven't forgotten 😉
On top of the fact that seasons are upside down, SA doesn't have long in-between seasons like spring and fall. It is usually either rather cold or very warm, with a very short transition period. We also don't have yellow leaves here, muted tones of fall mornings, the sweet smell of burning leaves....and I miss it terribly! So I have to be kinda creative with my 📷 and props cause I love fall so much, I wouldn't mind if I had it year round! 😊
Помните, обещала вам рассказать, что мне НЕ нравится здесь? Я не забыла о своём обещании! 😉
Ну, что сезоны здесь "вверх тормашками", я уже упоминала. И промежуточные сезоны, как весна и осень, здесь очень короткие. Позавчера ещё зуб на зуб не попадал, а сегодня уже можно загорать в саду - вот как-то так 😁 Ну с весной ещё ладно, а вот по осени я очень скучаю! По жёлтым листочкам под ногами, сладковатому запаху костров, сумеркам, которые, кажется, длятся бесконечно, по хрустящим первым заморозкам... Я б вообще жила б в вечной осени 🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁 #southafrica#lifeinsouthafrica#momslife#seasons#fall#spring#mylifeinflatlays#immigration#internationalmarriage#expatslife#instablog#instablogger#southafrican#southafricanblogger#southafricanbloggers
My mother had a friend who lived in Sweden - her 2 boys spoke Swedish, and came to live in Australia when I was in Primary School. Although she also spoke in Polish - there was an air of ‘hope’ which I do associate, with Sweden. So in a sense, Swedish culture is changing, thanks to immigration. And we can be proud of her. 🇸🇪❤️☀️ #hope#immigration#eu
Hooray, my boxes from Australia have finally arrived! I sent them back in March before starting residency so it’s been a while since I’ve seen some of my favorite things. Like my beautiful green Dutch oven from @benjam_2910. #immigration#betterlatethannever#timeforcooking
Он просто громаднющий. Мне кажется, если опаздываешь на пару минут, то попадешь в кабинет все равно через все 15.
А как там искать первый раз аудиторию?!😳
Университет настолько масштабный （это только один корпус）что выход из метро прям внутри （зеленая ветка）, как удобно студентам👍
О студентах так и вообще отдельная история. Что то не нравится -протест）👉самым четким была тема о повышении платы за обучение, почти 10лет оплата не повышалась
A truly important book. .
“We are unlikely to arrive at a time when examples of individual moral courage and intellectual honesty are not the clue to a larger scheme of liberty. As long as we continue to value these qualities, Infidel will count as a rebuke to all those who claim to see no difference between secular civilization and clerical barbarism, and as an inspiration to all those who view this confrontation without apology as the defining struggle of our time.” Christopher Hitchens in his Forward to this remarkable book, which should be required reading for American high school seniors, likely these days to have been taught a certain disdain for America’s history and values thanks to the moral relativism of the times. This book describes the reality of a perverse and primitive belief system we ignore at our peril. In this true story, there is no evidence to support the label, “a religion of peace.” The book reads like a novel — a disturbing novel, but uplifting. Read it. Thank me later.
Bryan's father passed away when he was in high school, and he started working to help support his mom and three siblings. Later, he attended college at night, and was finishing up the equivalent of a U.S. associate's degree when he met Kara. She was in Costa Rica studying Spanish after grad school. -
Theirs was a whirlwind romance that began in October. Once she returned home, Bryan came to visit (his first time in the U.S.). The couple wanted to be together, but they weren't ready to get engaged, so they decided Bryan would pursue a student visa--since he wanted to finish his degree. -
Kara then moved to the city where he was applying to university, and they had a few tense months of waiting and praying God would open the door and grant the visa. Bryan was still learning English, and he passed the English exam required for university admission by one point. His first semester studying business in his second language was extremely tough. He would record lectures on his phone and play them back several times while he studied for hours. Kara adds, "Also, international students don't qualify for traditional student loans. He would have only been able to get private loans with an astronomical interest rate had a family member not intervened to help us." -
When they decided to get married, Bryan and Kara contacted their representative to plead their case so his family could travel to the U.S. for the ceremony. They were granted conditional travel visas. -
After the wedding, they didn't apply for a green card right away since Bryan still had two years on his student visa. However, he was detained at the airport in Miami for several hours coming back from their honeymoon and again in Dallas a few months later when they went to visit family in Costa Rica. "Even with a legitimate student visa, the U.S. wasn't very welcoming," Kara says. Bryan got his green card a few months before graduating, and they are so thankful to be living and working here now. They have a 2-year-old and will celebrate 6 years of marriage in December!
