I was really happy a few days ago when I got my EEA card (European Economic Area) card and it said it’s my residency permit, which means now I am a permanent resident here, in Finland. Quite nice feeling: to finally belong (somehow) somewhere. In US, I still have don’t have my Green Card approval. It’s a bit weird and I am not sure why they consider me such a dangerous element. Dirk was saying that it could be because I “suspiciously” cut my finger right before my fingerprinting appointment 🙂
Anyway, it is quite nice to know that I have social security rights and guaranteed health insurance, not like in US, where I kept paying for these items but I never had them as rights.
