Hometown, and that even though the city I was in temporarily was a small city, the National university of the country is there & they had the degree that I wanted to study, so I ended up finishing my undergraduate degree there too.
I have now moved back to my hometown because I’m finished with university in that small city, & I didn’t like it there, so I just came back. However I had to move back alone cause my family still needs to stay there for work.
What I was wandering though is, does going to university in another state or city suddenly make people think you’re not from your hometown? Cause whenever I’ve met new people here since I moved back alone 6 months ago, & we’ve had conversations about where we studied for university, as soon as they hear me say I studied in another city, they think I’m from there & they don’t really seem to listen to the part where I said I’m actually from here but was just there for uni.
Lots of people move away to different cities or countries to study at a university that’s more suitable for their career cause not every city has a university that has what some people may wanna study. I don’t understand why that would take away my identity from my hometown & make people think I’m not originally from here?
Are they purposely ignoring the fact that Im from here? Are they just not listening properly? It’s getting a bit irritating having people from my own hometown tell me I’m not from here just cause I was away for a bit.
No. People from different cities speak our language in a different way, so one can tell where you're from relatively easy.
But in all the 9 years on Fascistbook people often thought I was an American, for unknown reasons. 😁
