I live in a very diverse area. My highschool was actually featured in Nationall Geographic a few years back as being the most ethnically diverse in the nation. We pretty have have people from everywhere on the globe here, who speak every language imaginable. I just had a lenghy phone conversation with my future roomate at JMU. (I'll be attending there starting in august) He sounds like a very nice guy, and I think we'll be able to get along great. In addition, he's from the one background that I have basically no experience with: smalltown America. (southern) Anyhow, this is going to be a new experience for me, wish me luck!!!
