Where would you say is your hometown originally? Which city/area are you native to? Be specific as to naming the town, suburb, etc.. Are you proud to have originated from there?

I grew up in Beaverton, Oregon, near Portland. I usually say Portland since most people don't know Beaverton. And yes, I am quite proud to be from Oregon. I also spent 3 years of my childhood in Houston, Texas, and I do feel somewhat close to it (even though I would never move back), plus my mother is from Texas.
Technically, I could be from California as I was born here (Santa Rosa to be exact) and my dad is from the Bay Area, but truth is no place feels more home to me than Oregon.

Beaver Falls, Pa (Joe Namath)
Oakmont, Pa (Oakmont Country Club)

Both are Pittsburgh suburbs. Oakmont is my home town since I moved there when I was 4 and spent the majority of my life living there.

Was born in North Seattle, WA.

I don't like Seattle as it is today at all, and by proxy, I hold no pride over having been born there. We moved to Boston in my early teens, and that's really where I consider myself to be "from" since that's where I learned to be an adult, if you will.

People in CA think I seem like I'm from Boston. People in Boston think I seem like a Bostonian. People in WA think I'm an "outsider." That about seals it!
