    I can define it like being Young and Visible (all rights reserved)
  5. Technically I'm not an immigrant cause Puerto Rico is part of the US, but from what I'd heard before I went to the US, we're treated as immigrants anyways (aside from paperwork issues, of course).

    Then I went to the states and it didn't seem that way at all. I was treated awesomely.

    oh and, did you stay the way you were in Puerto Rico here in the US or did you change allot? like your behavior, your dress, your music preference, your attitude, all that stuff

    you ask alot of questions huh
  10. Nah, I'd visited the US a few times before, but that was it. Moved there when I was 18, by myself, for college. 5 years later and I'm back in Puerto Rico, and it's not because I didn't like it... more because of the weather and business opportunities.
  11. Well, I've never behaved much like the stereotypical puertorrican (except for the lazyness thing), and I've always been switching up my tastes and looks since i was a little kid, so if I did when I was in the states it wasn't to fit in. I was just exposed to new stuff that I liked.

    Hey what do you get when you mix a black guy and a mexican...a puerto rican..haha.

    Okay, yea im a fucking immigrant in this bitch.
    Came over the border when i was 1 and am now damn near 40, kinda stringent since i can get deported and my legal status taken away if im caught painting. kinda funny isnt it.

    I hate my fucking country, cant do shit there, the gangs run everything, the police, the stores, even the fucking government to an extent.. the only thing about my country i like is the view of the volcanoes and the sexy bitches, the country ones though, the city ones can eat a big one.

    I like america to an extent, but id rather be here then back where i came from, it has treated me like shit and it still does, ive got my (A) number tattooed on my back with a barcode like the cow they make you out to be. Im still plotting the revolution though.

    So if any motherfucking knuckleheads wanna get down and plot out our future, im all down for it.

    Cheese and beans my brothers, cheese and beans.

    I'm from the bahamas. shits mad ill. cuz I dont have permanent residency yet, gettin into college is full of all kinds of bull. The bad part is, I got a full track scholarship, but I still havent even applied because of legal complications. I'm still waitin on this lawyer to get the shit straight so that i can enjoy a nice US education for free.

    Marry an american...seriously,or if your parents are residents try to obtain a "v" visa, which essentially is a family unification program, they are currently used when lets say the parents and 2 brothers are legal but one person isnt, if you do in fact try to get a visa to study, there have been times when peopel had to go back to their place of origin and wait for it, (which ultimately sucks asshole). But if you did not come into the united states legally, then there is a possiblitly that you will have to go back to the bahamas and wait for it...ask your lawyer about the V visa and also about a F1 - F 2 Student visa. But if you say that your lawyer is taking care of it then you should be straight, but ask for references and also dont go to a notary public, go to a lawyers office.
