I don’t think I’ll ever feel at home here, not really. My family isn’t here; this isn’t my area, the people, the accents, the food are different. There are moments when I don’t care, and moments–scattered here and there–that I do care, deeply. I wish I could be one of them, instead of continuing to feel like a bright, slightly vulgar dahlia infesting a border of demure daisies. Not ugly, not bad, just…different.
