The title above is taken from Robin Williams' first album. And it is appropriate for how I've been feeling this week.
You see, I had a strange realization the other day...if I count time spent in college, I've been living in Minnesota over half my life (if I don't include college, half-life will hit on my birthday next year). And I have no idea how I feel about that.
I can certainly say that I love living here and have no interest in moving. If asked, I'd say that my home is in Minnesota (before my parents moved out of the house I grew up in, that was always home).
But, I don't think of myself as a Minnesotan. There are too many small things that I just don't get/understand/feel to make me one. I grew up in a different culture. Different rules and interests. Different vocabulary and mindset.
I don't think any of that will ever go away.
And I don't know how I feel about that.
