Usually what you call yourself if you were born in North America. So many young people are spoiled and ungrateful for the roof over their heads, their paid-for education, and the fact that they can just walk into the kitchen and be full. So many people slack in school and would rather party
and enjoy their youth instead of think about their futures and how that will impact the lives of their children someday. We can be shallow, uninterested in the rest of the world around us, ignorant and just plain stupid.
But not all Americans drive a Mustang, wear five pounds of make-up on their faces, stuff their faces, or play Xbox until 3 a.m. We don't all speak one language,(I'm on my way to speaking four) and yes, some of us hated Bush as much as you did. Some people are incredibly intelligent, some actually having ambition, aiming to study at the most prestigious schools in the country like Yale
, and Stanford. Obesity
is a major problem here, but so are anorexia
, especially inteen girls
. We call Futbol
soccer, and American Football
, Football. Calling soccer Futbol here will make people think you mean American Football, because Real Madrid is definitely not an American Football team here. I don't understand the American Football craze;being of Latino descent I do understand the FUTBOL craze, and if you ask around, yes some people can actually name five European club teams.
Why do us Americans only dream of traveling
to France and Italy? Both beautiful places, but why not open our eyes and see the other places we can discover, like Argentina
, Japan, Brazil
, Mexico, Dominican Republic, South Africa, Fiji
, Egypt, Portugal
and Spain? Its a big world and living in a single culture all your life is as boring as The Hills
