From Africa to California, I need some direction
CALIFORNIUM - Oct 12 2016 at 11:40
So im 20 years old and i was born in california but was raised in a far different culture (egypt if it matters) .When i was 16 i decided to move to the US to go to college and start a life and eventually i ended up in california. I spoke good english when i moved out here because i went to a british school back then. I landed as a junior in high school and didnt have a clue of how much things were about to change. By change im refering to the difference in life styles, culture and my relationship with those around me. At school i was able to adjust with no significant difficulty. Im atheletic so i joined all the sports i could and met people. Meeting peope wasnt much of an issue for me but after a while as i settled in, it became obvious that i dont connect with them anymore. I spent time trying to figure how to do so but somehow i keep drowning myself deeper. I had a girl friend back home which we were
Hey! Looks like your thread got cut off. Tell us more about your relationships and if you have any ideas where the disconnect might be coming from. Do you think it has to do with cultural differences, or does this happen with your peers no matter what culture they are from? Look forward to hearing more from you...
