After 29 years in the United States, I find myself more American than I ever expected to be, yet not so American in many ways.

I just realized tonight that I forgot to change the header for this blog back in August - the anniversary of my arrival in the USA. It's been 27 years now. I've lived here more than half my life. Most of my life. I'm still not sure that I can really grasp that. And last week, someone I had just met randomly asked me to say "schedule". When I asked why, she commented that she had noticed my accent. More than half my life in the USA and I still don't sound American!
