Its not about where you’re born, its about where you grow up; where you meet your weaknesses and where you find your strength. For me, that’s Jersey. Being from Jersey means you have a sense of humor. You are a resident in the place that’s the butt of various jokes, your home has an unending complex because your bigger stronger better looking big brother slash neighbor to the North hogs up the lime light. And you have the NJ TurnPiKe. You just deal, you make up for your self that which no-one ever gave you, a self respect garnered in love for being the outsider. Its that easy. You BECOME Jersey; if you’re lucky.
