I always liked Louisville to drive through. I might have to take a closer look now.

You seem very confrontational with every person you encounter on this site. Are you just constantly looking for an argument?
Im not trying to be confrontational.

Im just saying that improper English and bad grammar are not the same as a local accent. The accent has nothing to do with education.

EVERYONE has an accent.

Grammar and improper English is one thing. But accent is not.

Some of the most Aristocratic English is spoken in the South!

No I don't feel like I was born in the wrong place which was Cambridge, Mass. I was raised in Massachusetts. I am finding though wherever else I have been or lived in the USA, I do feel I am in the wrong place. I am finding when I am beyond New England and some other areas of the northeast I feel out of place. When out of those Northeastern areas I do not relate to the USA much at all. I find I would actually relate more to several of the European countries I have lived in and or visited than much of the USA. Its a strange feeling but I can understand how it can happen, especially with how radically different this country can be from one region to another. One of my criterias as to where I will retire in the USA, is where there is a substantial population of transplanted people from the Northeast and elsewhere. So it will be the east coast most likely somewhere in Florida.

I use to feel like I was born in the wrong city....Waco,TX and belonged in Houston,tx. I than moved here to Houston for college and now looking back on the good ole times, Waco was a pretty fun city. Heart O Texas Fair, being almost kidnapped by the ice cream man, waking up early sunday mornings to attend CHURCH!, Being the token black kid in my hood, all the tornado warnings, getting a switch from the tree (always picked the wrong one!) hiking in cameron park, all the fights at the park, playing football in the street,etc.

I really miss those things now.

I would've loved to have grown up in Miami. But, New York is amazing, so I really can't complain.

No, I was born in the perfect place for me, which is Connecticut.

I loved living in Pacific Northwest. The nice summers, the cooler climate, being near the coast, I have many memories of living there.

All the freakin' time. For whatever reason, my parents decided that taking a cruise in the 8th month of pregnancy was a good idea. I've always thought being born in Cozumel was a mistake. Often I am confused as an illegal alien simply because of my Mexican citizenship... even though my parents are from Tulsa. To help clarify I even got a tattoo on my rear section that looks like a clothing label saying "Made in the USA".... but people still address me with "hola."
