Five years ago, I moved out of Boston from my home in college to go south to college.
There are so many things about my life I have never predicted, and there are many ways I have left home. For one thing, I never expected to experience such a culture shock.
Although I was still in the United States, a lot of the experiences seemed completely foreign to me, and when I would go back home from time to time, I would find myself looking at things that were once a brand new lens. Were familiar with. Regardless of the areas or countries you go to or from home, moving away from home is always an adjustment.
1. The customs of greeting are all different even if it is still the language with which you grew up.

I’m still not used to strangers who say hello to me on the street.
2. You found out that things were weird that you didn’t even know were weird.

It turns out nobody has heard of the candle bowling.
You. You miss out on the specific things that make you unique.

It’s not normal to see seven Duncan donuts in a town of 20,000 people.
â. You might be a little too excited to share the customs and cuisine with where you grew up with new people in your life.

Whenever I go home I just fill in the food to bring back.
You. You know about the unique things that make this new place unique.

6. You try new things.

Hot sauce is now a part of my life.
7. Going home is exciting for two seconds and then you become angry.
Your. Your parents always ask you when you will be home.

9. When you get home you have to find a lot of people along the way, which is less than the time limit.

“Hi! I love you! Bye! ”
10. You realize that most people who say they won’t visit.

“I’ve always wanted to go to ________! I’ve come to see you!”
11. You realize that these are probably the best things to do.

Being in the audience is actually exhausting.
12. You will find new holidays and festivals.

Mardi Gras is a game changer.
13. You get a new ring for the food you add.

It’s not the same anywhere.
14. You largely start defending things where you grew up feeling uneasy.

It’s called a rotary, not a traffic circle, not a circle. End of discussion.
15. Half of your wardrobe is no longer compatible with your new climate.
(Image description: dog dressed on foot on footpath)
Welcome, think you have to shop!
16. Your slavery becomes a hybrid of the different places in which you live.
(Image description: Maine girls’ lunchroom scene with the text “What to bring?” “Oh, it’s like a dialect from England”)
I used “el” and “devil” in the same sentence.
17. You get home like never before …
(Image description: GIF of the cartoon saying, “I am very home-hungry.”)
As you grow older when you miss an entire season. Fall RIP.
18.… and your appreciation for where you grew up takes you to a whole new level
(Image description: Looking at the woman’s GIF by surprise)
Is the house probably the best?
19. Do you feel conflicted about which sports teams you should be happy with?
(Image description: confused-looking, cycling on facial expressions)
Go… team? IDK !!!
20. You feel like an expert when someone comes to visit you from home and you become their tour guide.
(Image description: Seagway tour guide retreats with GIF megaphone)
Alphabetically, these are my favorite places.
21. You still feel like Nubia, even after years of changing.

Wait, where am I?
