I wanted to move to America and become a New England Patriots girl classy sassy and a bit smart assy shirt lawyer like Ally McBeal. I just wanted to become American – have a big house, marry someone with a sexy American accent, have all that space around me to drive in. I used to think America was so glamorous and larger than life. That desire was quelled when I worked in an American summer language camp in London, surrounded by Americans… and all of a sudden, I felt so foreign because I couldn’t understand what they were saying or their sense of humor. They were speaking English but in such a different way that it didn’t feel like a dialect, it felt like a different language altogether. That’s when I felt homesick for England even though I WAS in England :p The year after, I worked at a British summer language school, surrounded by British people and Europeans – I felt at home and so relaxed.

In my 20s, I dreamed of one day settling in Canada or New England Patriots girl classy sassy and a bit smart assy shirt Australia because they seemed like cool countries. But when I went abroad to teach English, I had 2 colleagues FROM Canada and Australia. I was shocked by how different their way of life was to mine. Whereas I was a very frugal person who enjoyed reading books, visiting museums, art galleries and wearing bohemian clothes… they were interested in shopping, their appearance and fitting in… and spending money like crazy. They didn’t seem to be interested in history and culture – they were pretty much living now and seemed cultureless by British standards.
