I was born in South Dakota - lived there for the first 22 years of my life - Then I moved to another state for a couple years - and then moved again and again and again - Finally ended up in Texas - where I have been for the last 22 years. When someone has asked me -- where are you from? - I have always said South Dakota - but In a few weeks I will have lived in Texas longer that I did SD - so am I now "from" Texas? How do you determine? Is it just where you were born? What if you were born in one state - but only lived there a short time. So - Where you are from? and How do you determine where you are from?
