My first questions would be
1) what trade agreements have we worked out.
2) How will the government handle the dispersment and liscensing of alien technology
3) where can I buy an nterstellar yacht.

Would you be excited? scared? angry? happy? Would this change your way of life in any way? Would it only confirm what you already knew and make no difference?

Excited? Yes, of course, regardless of their intent, it would certainly be exciting. Hell, I got excited when NASA admitted to water being on Mars!
Scared? Hell ya! We don't really know their intentions...not to mention how the cooks and religious will take it... I'd almost be more afraid of my fellow man...
Angry? Yes, at the government, for scoffing and ridiculing those that came forward, all the while knowing the truth, as well as for hiding it from us in the first place, despite the good reasons to do so.
Happy? Sure, to know at last that we are not alone in the universe, even if we end up not liking the neighbors...
Yes it would change my life...anybody who says differently is lying, even if only to themselves...
Yes it would confirm what I already believe I know....
