On voting day, I reflected on my first two elections and not feeling like I fit in. Well, in spite of the results, 2008 left me feeling the same. Yes, the results of the election give me hope, but I think my lifestyle and values differ from the culture of America. In a lot of ways, we're the same, but in so many, I stand alone. Well, not really alone, but I certainly don't feel like I belong. Or maybe the fact that I obviously am not a native while abroad is something I truly enjoy.
Self-exploration and discover is a challenge. Someday I'll figure myself out. LOL!
