In about six weeks, I'll have lived in Yinzlandia for nine years. That's a long time. But I still say I live in Yinzlandia, but I'm from Beaver Cleaver, Ohio. I don't know why I feel the need to "clarify."
Don't get me wrong, I love living in Yinzlandia. There's so much to see and do. I love the city neighborhoods, I love the architecture of the buildings, I love the hills (just don't ask me to go up and then look down). I go for walks at lunch (when it's nice enough to go outside) and have discovered things like Gertrude Stein's childhood home, the home of George Ferris, Jr, the inventor of the Ferris wheel. All within blocks of my job. So cool!
Maybe after 10 years I'll start saying I'm from here? 20 years?
Any other transplants out there? When did you start saying you were from "here"?
