People say don't hate your country because that was where you were born and raised. You shouldn't hate it because they provided you with a home and all. But in all honesty, I hate mine, right down to the core.Why?Well, because my life was a living hell for the past 7-8 years because I was denied my citizenship. So in my country, you can be its citizen if both your parents or one of them (mostly the father) is a native in the country, you were born in there and so on. Basically I was born in my country and lived here for all my life and all that ish, but the government decided "nope, you're not getting it" because my mom is an immigrant. And one of the qualifications you can get your citizenship, they follow the dad's side, not the mom. So if your dad is a local in this country, and you were born here, you should be able to get your identification card (IC) at the age of 12. But for my case, nope, they went racist whack just because my mom was from the neighbouring country/an immigrant. So my family and I did what any other person would do; we applied for me to get my citizenship. I am a local of my country, and I even have the stuff needed for my IC, hell even a birth certificate that clearly states I was born here. But 3 years later, they rejected it and didn't give a fucking goddamn reason why. So a year later, I applied again and to this day, while I'm miraculously in college, I'm still fucking waiting for the approval letter from the damned government so I can study in peace because fuck this shit, I can't do anything while I'm not local. I don't mind being a citizen from my mom's side, but then it'll complicate a bunch of things like opening a bank account and the payment for international students at my college is like around $4453.20 and that's the first year! For locals, it's like around $9896.00 for 3 years (for my course), but when it comes to international kids like me, it's doubled. And sure the locals can't exactly pay that much amount, that's why they managed to get all kinds of scholarships while me, an IC-less person just had to depend on myself. Hell, I don't even trust my college anymore because of the lies my "counselor" gave when I enrolled for my foundation year.Honestly, I already finished 2 semesters for my first year and I'm at the verge if I should finish up my first year or just postponed it, because my damned college being a pain to the arse and the government being stupid and quiet about my problem, which if they don't reply in a couple of days this year, it would make it like 4 years of me waiting.
