Photo of the Week - Reality, what a concept

March 24, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

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.
