If She Can Make It Here...

Ever have one of those wistful, philosophical moments where you wonder what could've been? I think everyone has...

I was born in New York, Manhattan to be specific, but was only a resident for the first few months of my life before my parents decided to move back to Ireland... But I've always wondered what my life would have been like if dad hadn't accepted that job in Dublin and my parents had actually stayed in that rent controlled apartment in Greenwich Village. What kind of person would I be today? Would I have been that strange kid in school that no one wants to sit next to? Or would I be a horrible cheerleader type?*shudder* It doesn't matter really I suppose... I mean I'm perfectly happy here in Ireland - I'm in a pretty awesome college, I have the most amazing set of friends in the world, and Dublin is most definitely the city I will always return to where ever I end up in the world... But I'll always be a native New Yorker.

I've even got the passport to prove it.
