Where Are We From?

Given the great opportunities to experience the resolutions and issues of other cultures...I thought it would be interesting to see where some of our posters call home. For instance, there seem to have been several SE Asian posters, and Korean posters who have presented issues outside my USA frames of reference.

If I'm off base, please let me know. Otherwise...where ya from? I'm from California, USA. Currently, in Tennessee.

Re: Where Are We From?

I'm proud to say I'm a born-and-raised Marylander.

I currently reside in southern Arizona. No more shoveling snow for me ... EVER.

I refuse to make anyone a priority in my life who considers me nothing more than an option.

You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.

Melbourne Australia. Aussie born and raised

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they donít have any.
For those that think the idea of marriage is all about hugs, kisses and being tied down forever after it is way more than that, and marriage can actually be most important when you find yourself in one of life's ugliest moments.-BadSanta

Cool Re: Where Are We From?

Born in East Texas; Reared in SW Louisiana, Back to God's Country after college graduation!

There are only two places I'd leave Texas for: the Northern Shore of Lake Superior or anywhere in New Zealand!

Re: Where Are We From?

I was born in the USA, East Coast.

My mother was Italian. My father American mix.

I grew up and lived as an adult in the USA, East Africa, Middle East, Central America, Italy and a few other places in Europe. Clearly we traveled a lot and had homes all over the place.

Re: Where Are We From?

I was born in Pennsylvania, now I live in northern Virginia. Spent much of my adult life in Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC before moving to Virginia.

I'm a little jealous of all the interesting places @EleGirl has lived! I have yet to see as much of the world as I want. I love learning about and experiencing other cultures.

Re: Where Are We From?

I was born in a small border town in Mexico. Mother was Mexican and father was American of Mexican decent as were all the natives that lived in the small border south Texas towns near where I was born. My dad's grandparents were considered American when Mexico lost and gave those towns to the US after they lost the war (well, really all Texas). Greatest thing to ever happen to us really.

Thanks to my Dad's nationality, I was able to become a naturalized american citizen at the age of 18. I went to school in the US for most of my middle school years and up. My mother did not want her children to lose their Spanish, so we all attended Mexican private elementary schools and that worked because our primary language remained Spanish. I have to admit that I still struggle with English, but Spanish is a no brainer for me.

I live in a tiny Texas border town. Sadly my properties and land in my Mexican town have been confiscated by the low lives that have taken over my beautiful native country. It is a land without law there now. The scary part is that only a river divides Mexico from Texas and life couldn't be more drastically different and dangerous from one side of the river to the other.

Good things come to those who wait...greater things come to those who get off their a$$ and do anything to make it happen.

That's when I'd rotate back toward Texas! Otherwise, the scenery was absolutely magnificent!

I was up there in May a few years back and it "lowed out" one night at 27F! That was doable!

Scared the hell out of me when the locals intoned that Lake Superior often froze over!

Re: Where Are We From?

Born in Birmingham England and not moved very far, really.

In England 50 miles is considered to be a huge distance!

Though it is not the same now until about 50 years ago in a large city like Birmingham accents/dialects would change from one Street to another and we are talking about a distance of yards rather than miles.
