My name is Brandi, I run linguisticsyall and this is my main blog. I like quoting famous dead people, reblogging paintings, and complaining.
Ran to Utrecht and went into my friends house. They gave me the key but they went away. The cleaning lady was there and was really startled at having a panicked American girl come in through the shed.
She didn’t speak English so she told me in Dutch their vacuum cleaner is broken, could I please let them know? (Bahahaha, yes I can.)
The agent just asked me accusingly why I bought my ticket in October 3rd and how I knew I’d be leaving in November by October 3rd. Yes, I didn’t tell anyone because I was afraid of what would happen to me, for the 1,000th time. They want me to go meet my host family in person and give them their keys back.
Yes, they want me to go meet in person the family I told them has been abusing me for two months. That really makes it clear how much they want to help me. They won’t give me a straight answer about if it’s okay if I leave in November or not. They won’t answer any simple questions but still demand the info they want from me while being vague as possible.
Maybe I should just stop talking to them at all? I have about three weeks left. One of the agents slipped that my residence permit has been withdrawn so I’m already on my travel visa (“Really? So it’s okay?”) Then she quickly backtracked and told me she had to ask and make sure. It’s like it’s their policy to tell me as little as possible. Tom figures that an application for change in status takes about two weeks to go in effect and then I have a week leftover. If the IND sees I have a ticket out maybe they won’t be assholes about it.
I literally gave them specific instances of abuse and they ignored them outright, but when they see I bought my ticket October 3rd, then there’s a problem? Maybe I should refuse to unregister at the townhall and return the keys until they start being more reasonable.@8 hours ago with 2 notes
