Does finding out stuff like this affect your sense of identity, or d'you not really give a shit?
not that my past is hella interesting. but still. i argue with my girlfriend about it. she's more interested in my family history than i am.
I'm quite interested in my family's past, as it happens. Not in a genealogical "Robert the Bruce was my ancestor" way, but more in terms of recent-ish history. And when I get the train to see my grandparents I always sit on the same side, so I can see the block of flats I was born in as I go past.
I like to think I don't define myself by it, but I don't know how I'd feel if I found out that details about my life are in fact different to what I thought. It's possible I'd just shrug and carry on.
cos tomorrow im going to phone up my temp agency and go
"oh btw, i didnt actually have a certificate of naturalisation cos ive just found out that i've always been british. sorry"
english criminals are their core supporters, after all
it's great. if i ever decide to become moderately good at some obscure sport, i could PROBABLY play at international level.
