History of adaptation with a small child and a doubting husband.
History of adaptation with a small child and a doubting husband.
In 1999 I was in the US on a student program, and in 2000 I tried to leave again, but I was brutally refused, and were right, because I was going to stay there. But how did I get sick (mentally) because of that refusal.
The second reason for experiencing is my husband. I persuaded him at my own peril and the risk of going to the USA, tk. he is a very difficult person to climb. After the first envelope came, I persuaded him to send the second, and “then we’ll see.” Then I persuaded to issue the documents for the second package, and “then we’ll see.” Then things went much easier, but there were doubts anyway. And when they got visas, so much money, time and effort was spent, we must go, and “then we’ll see.” In the end, this was already such a joke, for every positive episode in Belarus he told me “But this will not happen in America,” and I told him every negative thing is the same. ” So there will be one of two things: either he will cut me all the time, or say “But this will not happen in Belarus. ”
We flew not on October 7, but 8, the plane was detained for 2 hours. But this is symbolic, October 8 – Columbus Day, a semi-official holiday, who works, and someone does not.
We were met and brought to the suburb of Seattle – Lynwood, 20-25 kilometers away.
After a lapse of two days it was necessary to determine where in which city to settle and look for housing. On a family council of three people decided (voted “for” the majority – 66%) to settle in Linwood.
There were several reasons for this. First, it is of great importance that close to you live Russian-speaking people who are familiar to you, who even without being familiar with us provided help and support. And communication with fellow countrymen in the distant American country is always a joy.
Secondly, Lynwood, though a small city by American standards, is a suburb of Seattle, which gives a number of advantages. On the one hand, you live in a quiet tranquil district, where everything is at hand, and kindergartens, shops, and all infrastructure. On the other hand, a larger field of activity when looking for work, you can search in both Linwood and Seattle. Now the trend is moving businesses in the suburbs to unload large cities. From us to Seattle get 40 minutes by public transport.
Perhaps in a year, when the contract for housing will end and we will determine where it is best to work, where to study, where to go to the kindergarten, we will look at the place of residence differently, but this will happen later.
But there is time to start looking for a normal job and settling the life, we need to buy something else from the household.
Before I got a job at Macy’s, I went to the labor exchange for free Microsoft courses on Excel, Word, Power Point, Access. I certainly know Excel and Word perfectly, but the fact is that there the teaching is in English and for the Americans, so it turned out to be very useful. Yes, and Power Point, Access, I think I come in handy. In terms of language it was hard, but we are not looking for easy ways. Nobody there did me a discount, there was a test, I just did not understand the meaning of one question, but the teacher said that if he tells me, it will not be fair to others, and I can go to courses for those who have English Second Language. Well, no, I thought, you can not take us with your bare hands. On the next lesson, the teacher offered me to be his assistant in other courses on studying the company, right there on the labor exchange, for English Second Language comrades. While I do not know my schedule in the store, but said that most likely on Monday and Tuesday I can. There the group is not yet formed, and the budget is not approved, he does not know whether he will be able to offer me a paid job, or whether it will be a volunteer work.
In turn, I hope that my story was useful to you. Write, I will answer all questions.

My wife also screams that she will not go to any America. I remind her that nothing has ever won. But she again for her.
I calm down that we will win, and then we’ll see.
