I was born in the USA. Still live in the USA.
However, I'm seeking sponsorship from any cute/single UK boys... preferably in the SE London area. ;)

I live away from my homeland. The thing that struck me about the US was the distance between people. Where I am from there was a certain warmth, and not just literally. I feel like this place is more about the individual than the community. People don't help each other out as a genuine, natural reaction to need. I also think alcohol and shopping are too high on the list as forms of entertainment.
