How should I put this... Growing up in a small town away from the city, basically there were no immigrants. What I mean is... everyone in town was 2nd or 3rd generation born Canadian- and half of the people in my hometown were Aboriginal. Going to college in the city, I was asked one day by a guy in one of my lectures "Where are you from?" I told him the name of my home town and he looked confused and re-phrased the question, asking; "No... what Country?" ...I said Canada. lol I'm a 5th generation Canadian, so I didn't really get what he was getting at-- but he said that I 'looked' like I was of Russian descent! (I am 0% Russian XD) I hadn't really thought of my Nationality before~ I always just figured, I'm Canadian! That's it, right? When people ask me now, I tell them that I am "Irish-Metis" because I am about 1/3 Irish, 1/4 Metis (if you don't know... it's a mix of French/North American Indian) and a bit of a bunch of other things. I think that's part of what makes me Canadian though ^___^ lol We're a pretty mixed country when it comes to Nationalities, I would say. There was a bit of culture shock at first, when I moved to the city. I didn't mind it- I actually prefer the city~ but there was an obvious change. Has anyone else experienced that? What do you tell people when they ask "where are you from?"
