Quite literally where I was born and raised but then this question follows: “No, but like, where are you REALLY from?”
So my reply is, once again, where I was born and raised + “buuuut I’m half Japanese, half Canadian, if that answers the question you meant to ask.”
Each time I am asked that question I try to read what they mean by it and would answer accordingly. But usually I end up telling complete strangers my entire life story.
I tell them where I was born, and where I currently live, then ask them where they’re from.
