Hi everyone. Finally trying to get the show on the road - so please start a new post, fill out this meme, and introduce yourself.

About yourself...

-Username/Nickname (what you'd like us to call you)

-Website link, if you have one.

-Where were you born? (i.e. in the US or in another country)

-What was your first language? Your second? Third?

-What ethnicity do you identify as? (i.e. Latino, Chinese, etc.)

About your culture...

-Name your favorite food that comes from your heritage/culture and tell us something about why you like it.

-What's one thing that you do in your culture that is different from American culture?

-What's your biggest pet peeve when it comes to someone not understanding your ethnicity/culture? (i.e. people asking you where you came from, being weirded out by the food you eat, etc.)

-Name one thing your parents don't like/understand about American culture.

-Name one thing you don't like/understand about your own culture.

-Have you ever visited the country you/your parents came from?
...if so, tell us something that you thought was different/interesting about it.

-Have you travelled to places in the US or other countries where you've felt like a foreigner/outsider?
...if so, tell us something that you thought was different/interesting about it.

And lastly, just for fun...

-Tell us one random odd fact about yourself.


Please feel free to suggest additions to the interests list, or begin discussions. Thanks!

Heeey, I thought you didn't like egg. :p

Anyhow, do you mind posting this to a new post?

For anyone who isn't sure on how to post to a community...

Go to your 'update livejournal' screen.

At the bottom of the screen, it says 'For more options click here.' Click on that. You'll a listing of 'Optional Settings.'

Select the drop-down menu for 'Journal to post in.' That will allow you to select gen_am to post in. The reason I ask people to start new posts is so I can archive members in the memories once we get more people. That way it's easy for new members to get an idea of older members' answers.

Thanks for being the first to reply. I'm going to try to formulate some answers myself. :)
