Daily Diary #3: The Case of the Melting Pot

As Americans, we consistently classify ourselves by where our ancestors were from. I always talk about how I'm Irish and Iranian, where my paternal grandmother and maternal grandfather were from. I'm barely either of those things. But that's how I describe myself. I'm 3rd+ generation American. I'm not an immigrant. Far from it. But I don't identify as an American.
Ironically my good friend in England, he just calls himself English. "With a bit of Irish way back."

Interesting isn't it.
