I feel down today but not devastated. My US Visa application got denied. Although I got so distracted because the interviewer’s eyes kept twitching while asking questions, I knew in my heart that I answered the questions satisfactorily. Nevertheless, my confidence crashed when he told me his decision and the logic behind it.
The main reason that I was given was, I’ve only been in North America for less than six months. That is fairly acceptable reason…. however, I cannot fathom why they did not indicate that in their website. I could have save time, MONEY, and effort. Maybe the officer was just being polite? Hmmm… From what I’ve heard, US Consulate officials are known to be forthright. Hence, politeness is out of the question (?).
The US Visa application fee, airfare, hotel accommodation, and one day wasted vacation leave instantly flashed into my mind when I learned about the result. A considerable amount of dollars vanished in a thin air just like that! I could have added some few hundred bucks to that and got myself a second hand car. Or I could have bought a new pricey watch. Or I could have send the money to the Philippines. It’s so frustrating! Sigh.
I was even looking forward to visiting my cousins in Virginia but I guess, it’s not yet the right time. Now, I’m wondering where to go and how will I spend my vacation leave. Asia is too far. California is cheap but then again… I don’t have that freakin’ visa! Argh!
Hmmm… How about a cruise eh? Or travel to Europe perhaps? I got a Schengen Visa before and my record is quite good… maybe… just maybe.. they will issue me again a Schengen Visa? I’m just thinking out loud. :p
First, I got denied of a credit card.
Second, I got denied with a domain name application because my (Philippine) credit card’s address does not match my current address.
Third, I got denied of a US Visa.
Whaaaaat’s neeeeeext? -_- Oh well, it’s not the end of the world. You win some, you lose some. As they say, there’s a rainbow after the “rain”… perhaps I will get a “rainbow” next time?
“And I start singing, my my… my American Pie” or is it “bye bye… my American Pie”? :p
P.S. I decided to intentionally miss my flight tonight, hence, my return ticket is wasted. I would like to emphasize,it’s not because of depression or something. I met up with my cousin and her family and we will gallivant until Sunday! Ha! Life must go on! Aja!
