If you read my bio you will see that I was born in Caracas, Venezuela, but moved to Miami, FL when I was 12-years-old, where I had to learn English since my first language is Spanish.
I lived there with my family for 6 years, until I moved to West, Lafayette, IN, by myself for college. Back home all of my best friends, and pretty much everyone I knew, was Hispanic. And all of closest friends had moved to Miami around the same time I did, so back home it was pretty common for everyone to move from a different country—for me, it was definitely nothing extraordinary—until I came to Purdue, where out of all my friends probably 3 speak Spanish.
So if you are like me and are surrounded by Americans 24/7 because they are your best friends or just because well, you decided to come study in the Midwest, you learn a couple of things. These are things that will make you laugh when you are reading them because of how accurate they are.
