I used to feel sorry about that when I was a child, to have this thought of "who the hell I am?" But I no longer feel that way. I am glad I have an opportunity to get to know other countries. I'm glad I'm not a nationalistic idiot who thinks that her country is the best thing that exist on this planet, I'm glad I know that people are essentially the same people, no matter what their nationality is. I am glad that I judge people because of who they are, not because of their nationality.

You perfectly expressed what I was thinking. There's nothing left to add. Very Happy

hey Jazzie, would you like to be key-pals? I study German and it would be great to practice my lousy German with a native German speaker... Besides, I love writing letters. Also schreibe mir, wenn du Lust hast!
Liebe

Hi My friends,

I'm originally Turkish, but right now I 'm living in Manchester, CT.

When we consider social problems in USA, what comes first in my mind is that this life leave people alone. Divorce rate is too high. New generation dont wanna get married.

Also, everything depends on money. many are searching for real happiness inside money.
