SUGGESTIONS please...

Recommended Posts

so lately I've been really frustrated with the waiting for my approval! And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one so I decided to create this post for everyone to post and talk about some stuff we could do or that you have done to keep yourself busy and not think about DACA that much! :)

Hi JayhOR24 I am glad you are trying to spend more time in other things. When I was waiting for DACA I volunteered at a local elementary for a reading program. I also like the outdoors so I would go on walks and would take pics. Any sports you like? Talk with friends if you need to vent but always remember this is just temporary.

Hey! Thanks... The volunteering sounds cool!

I live in NC and lately its been freezing cold so can't really spend that much time outside!

Its hard because I have a few friends who also applied for DACA (like in early November and they got accepted already) so they are always asking me about it!

But hopefully by the end of this month... :)

Omg I know what you mean! The fact that I'm a very impatient person does not help at all. Been waiting since November 19th to hear something back (that's the day I had the Biometrics appointment) I've decided to avoid checking my email. Though I'm telling you right now...impossible! lol...

Be patient, dude. That's all you can do. Remember.... we've been waiting for an opportunity like this for years, so some weeks and months shouldn't bother us so much. But that's soooo easy to say. Lol. Try making a list of things you like to do. Then check them off after doing them to the fullest and then getting tired of them. It's worth a try.

Hello Jay,

In my, honest, opinion, to fill the void and emptiness of your day you should think of something not entirely boring and also not something that is either fast achieved or temporary.

I strive for education. During the years of Middle school, I would fill the gap with the schools sport teams, Basketball and Volleyball. Before doing so, I made sure to seek aid from the nearby library with my homework and continue French classes with one of the librarians (who taught me it for free by selecting books and helping me read them. She completed french courses in college but she did not know what to teach, so reading books seemed educational).

During High school, I joined multiple clubs and participated in many internships outside of the school, offering community service. I joined the communities Boys & Girls bluc inc., the Library, one of the Middle schools (by guiding students out of streets, helping enroll into school sports and enlisting for tutoring even if unnecessary). By my junior year I was very glad to be an intern for one of the law offices in my city, and, in some cases, was able to participate in some law processes (nothing huge, mostly immigration and divorce). Senior year I fully dedicated myself to help elderly's. It was rather enjoyable helping them cope with some of their emptiness (some of their children deceased or do not bother to show up). I sometimes pass by to give them a warm hello, and am now considered the grandson of most of them. On the spare time I was handed (I know right), I attended a very private gym ($30.00 a month, just so that I wouldn't have to see some people).

You have to know who you are before you decide on what to fill your void. It's easy to experiment, but it's hard to stop experimenting. Once that smell is really strong and alluring, stick with it. It is, or should be, what you are able to accomplish best, after educating yourself of course.

A wise man, yes from the elderly home, told me that "If some doors don't open, make new ones because the world isn't handed to you, it is left with battles to be conquered."
