    OK. I am a Chinese person born in America,

    but I feel like I've been marooned here. When I look at pictures of the Stockholm/Sigtuna area (in Sweden), I feel very homesick and have an undying urge to go there. I have a tendency to use the non-American spellings of words (colour, defence, etc). I don't know if I was...

    I don't feel like I belong to here.

    I don't like the people, I don't like the current music, I don't like the weather, I don't like the stereotype we have. I think that the only thing I like is the food.

    I don't fit here. I can't relate to the people

    here. I hate the fact that hard work doesn't matter, only who you know, what ethnicity you are (or more accurately if you're the "right" ethnicity) and the family you come from. I hate that the measure of your success as a woman is if you're married and have popped out...

    I'm 22 and since my childhood I think

    I was meant to be born in England.

    I do not belong here especially where I live. My heart and my loyalty will always be in England, and eventually the rest of me will be too.
