Things that have changed since I became an American citizen

‘Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.’ – George Bernard Shaw

  • I’ve become competitive at sports
  • I like winning, not losing
  • I’ve become determined to get things done
  • I do what I want, and I get what I earn, on my own terms
  • I want to do things no one else is doing
  • I like challenges of epic proportion
  • I want a big truck, and a sports car
  • I won’t have made it until I’m the Vice President of a company, or in the White House
  • I’ve realised how small-scale Australia is (just watch the local news to see this one)
  • I’ve come to appreciate aspects of American culture, history and politics
  • I like hip hop, and the ‘started from the bottom now we’re here’ narrative
  • I respect and appreciate firearm discipline
  • I stopped using private health insurance
