Smile Culture Shock with Repatriation in the USA

I moved back to the USA from the Philippines in January, and I'm still going through culture shock.

The language has changed (with so many new slang words/expressions).

TV has changed... cable boxes have been replaced by streaming with Roku TV (and Roku boxes).

Plus, apartments are being built with much smaller rooms than the older apartment buldings that I remember.

Thomas Wolfe famously said: "You can't go home again."

I finally appreciate what he meant, since when you go back there, (almost) everything has changed.

Overall, even with all of the changes, I'm thrilled to be back home.
