This week has been pretty uneventful for me, however it seems like it’s earthquake season: Japan, California, Chile, Nicaragua, and now Mexico. This morning Mexico experienced a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that was centered near Acapulco, where many Mexicans are vacationing for Easter holiday including some of my family members. It was felt in at least 6 states including Mexico City which is always vulnerable to distant earthquakes because much of it sits atop the muddy sediments of drained lake beds that quiver as quake waves hit. The magnitude-8.1 quake in 1985 that killed at least 6,000 people and destroyed many buildings in Mexico City was centered 250 miles (400 kilometers) away on the Pacific Coast.

Hi everyone, today’s Friday Roundup came late as I have been busy dealing with Homeland Security, immigration lawyers, Paypal blocking my account because they think I’m laundering money, and the DMV taking months to send me my driving license. So… yeah, it has been a bit stressful but luckily today my hubby took me for happy hour to a nice restaurant and we had the most delicious molten lava cake and then we stopped at the grocery store where I bought two mangos! I love mango.

Anyway, I hope you all have an awesome weekend! And enjoy this week’s links. (p.s. a post about the story of my green card will be coming soon.)

On my list this weekend is to buy some tea. I have officially ran out of my tea stash and need some urgently. Our roommates still have plenty of lipton tea bags and plenty of green tea bags but I personally don’t like lipton and green tea makes me dizzy. I’m looking to buy some lemon ginger, black (haven’t decided which kind), and chamomile.

On other news, I am really frustrated and almost angry at my mailman because it looks like he is returning my mail and I am expecting some really important mail related to my immigration status and which if I don’t receive, it might cost me $590 to $1000 USD plus a lot of waiting time. The DMV already confirmed that he returned my driving license, so I’m worried. I don’t know why he thinks I’m a terrorist or something, why is he returning my mail?

Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend! And enjoy this week’s links:
