I’m home sick today, which is part of the reason I’ve spent a lot of time writing drafts for my blog today. I pray every night that one day I will be able to live in your country. I know that one day it will happen and I hope that one day comes faster. You are my biggest happiness and my biggest heartbreak. Happiness because thinking of you makes me forget about the rest of the world and heartbreak because I remember I wasn’t born there. And although I wasn’t born there, I am still from there. Mom and dad always tell me we will go soon but money is tight. I am the proudest American/Argentinian alive and I can assure you that. I tell everyone with such pride and confidence that I come from your country when people ask me where I am from.
I am feeling a little heartbroken at the moment due to Argentina losing La Copa America Final. I can only imagine how the players are feeling. I am sad and I keep thinking about it. I keep thinking about what would’ve happened if we would have won and how we would’ve celebrated. It is a dream of mine to be alive to see Argentina bring home a cup, whether its a World Cup or Copa America Cup. I would love for the whole team to be victorious but in mostly would love to see Messi bring it home because he deserves it the most. The whole country deserves a win because we are the biggest and most passionate supporters out there.
Fuerza Argentina. La hinchada de Argentina es la mas grande de el mundo y bancamos a la seleccion. Un dia vamos a traer la copa a Argentina. Nadie sabe el dolor como un Argentino porque siempre estamos sufriendo. En las buenas y en las malas, somos Argentina!! Mi corazon siempre va a ser celeste y blanco. Te re amo, Argentina.
-Love Always, Chris ❤
I was born and raised in NYC, the capital of the world, how more blessed can i get?!?! Well yes, I got more blessed by having an Argentinian/Uruguayan background. Even though I wasn’t born in Argentina, I consider it my home. My father is Uruguayo (literally right next to Argentina and share all the same customs) and my mother is from Argentina. Sometimes i get jealous that they were born/raised there and I didn’t have the chance to be born or raised there. I love Uruguay as much as I love Argentina, but I feel as if I have a stronger attachment to ARG. I’m not sure why, but I am very emotionally connected to this country. I always catch myself day dreaming about living there and raising my family in Argentina when I get older. I absolutely love everything about Argentina: our people, our food, our accents, our pride, our futbol team, EVERYTHING!!!
It’s confusing to me because I wasn’t born there but I am obsessed with this country. I honestly consider it home and when I think of my future I think about Argentina. As a child, my parents raised us like Argentinian, Uruguayan children and how children would be raised there. As I got older, my love for these countries grew more and more. I have so much pride in where I come from. A lot of people look at me and say, “You don’t look hispanic” “What are you? Italian? German? Polish?” and I always proudly say “I’m Argentinian” and the best part is when they say “OH!!! now I see it!” I love when people ask me where I am from because then I can tell them with pride. What I also love is when people ask me to talk castellano (spanish) so they can here my Argentinian/ Uruguayan accent (same accent). I am just a (almost) 18 year old female, in love with where she comes from. I am excited to grow up and move to Argentina and live my life there. I can’t wait to go home ❤
