31 Signs You Are From Northern Virginia

Being from a military family, I have seen many part of this great nation and I have lived in several of them. Every two or three years, my family would pack up and move to a new state. Well, not always new. I have lived in Northern Virginia three times. I have literally (and I do mean it) lived half of my twenty years on Earth right outside of Washington D.C.. I managed to stay in the Fairfax County school system through each move and somehow survived the changing curricula. The culture of Northern Virginia is extremely complicated, so if you understand any of the following items, then you are from Northern Virginia.

1. You Say You Live In D.C. For Simplicity.

Unless someone has a family member or friend living in Springfield, Burke, Alexandria, etc. then they definitely won't know where it is.

2. You Know School Boundary Redistricting Does Nothing.

3. Traffic Is The Norm.

Leaving at least thirty to forty-five minutes early is the only way to get somewhere on time.

4. You Know More About Politics Than You Care To.

We live right outside our nation's capitol. You can't keep all of the politicians in D.C., so they come here to live among us.
