My house is made out of diamond encrusted platinum, and my car is solid gold. Life is great.

Move to somewhere in California. It's infinitely superior to any state i've been to and i've been to most.
(I've lived in Texas for over 20 years)

Motto: Pantsu is my Baka <3 Good and bad, I made the promise to stay at your side every step of the way. Also spells my name Yoori now.
Honestly, it's just you're a person who lives in America. You're still you, just now you have an American citizenship. I came from Russia to America almost 9 years ago, nothing changed how I thought about the world since moving here. Sure, if your life is in danger and you're granted an American citizenship, I'm sure you would look at it as you've been saved and given a second chance at life that you wouldn't have where you currently were, but really, you're still you. If you meant what it's like to be a citizen living in America; that too depends on you. If I'm an alcoholic in one place, I'm going to be one in another. If I'm an asshole in one place, I'm going to be one in another. So if you like to go out and be social where you're at now, whenever you get here, you go out and be social like you were before, just in a new environment and with new people.

For me, it was a drastic change on multiple levels, mainly with the fact that my mother literally woke us up and "hey, we're moving." That and my English was not the best during my time in Russia so once we got out here, the language barrier caused more issues than I remember. It did stress me out as I was thrown into a new environment when I did not want to be here in the first place but I was forced to stay at the time. Things are different here than other countries such as smoking and drinking ages, gun laws, all sorts of stuff, but at the end of the day, you're literally the same person who is now in America and that's it. You don't have to force yourself to become a "stereotypical" American where you're a gun-toting hick that screams Murica in every sentence to show you want to be here or even love the country.

Lived in Oregon my whole life. I don't like it much, but it seems a lot greener than most states. California is on my top list of places to move to when possible. Anyway being an American is kinda in a weird place. It's realy everything you have heard about. Right now we are being threatened by Kim Jong Un with nuclear attacks. So thats that...
