Been There...

I've never lived in the south but I've spent plenty of time there. Infact the last time I was out there I was out there long enough to come back with the thickest southern accent anyone out here had ever heard. Infact I had a woman from the city I live in here in Utah tell me I was a liar when I told her I was born and raised here in Utah....she said there was no way with the accent I had. That was on the plane on my way home.

I love the southern accent and loved when I had it. I still say some words like I'm from Georgia but all in all I've pretty much lost the accent.

The south is pretty. And there are some good people down there. Even though the culture down there is so different from what I'm used to.

I do love the south...I've even said one of these days I'm going to live in Southern GA. My only thing is any kids I have would have to born here in Utah lol. Not that there's anything wrong with the south or being souther...I honestly don't think there is...I just wouldn't want my kids to be southern. I don't like some of the things I noticed are taught to kids there. I don't like that I'm better then everyone cause I'm southern attitude most southerns have. So I wouldn't want my kids to be southern  by birth ya know. And just for reference sake I feel the same way about the north. I wouldn't want my kids being notherners either. But I've lived in the North and had my fill of it lol

I live in South Georgia and the saying goes: "I wasn't born in the south, but I got here as quick as I could" :-)

YES it does....because if you are born for example in the south then you are a true southerner and are taught to be extremely proud of that. But if your born in the north and raised in the south then your a northerner and there's not a southerner around that wouldn't tell you so. How can you be proud to be something your not?

It makes no difference what region you are born in but rather what you are taught and raised around...
