Born in Switzerland, but English inside :)

Hey all,
I'm so happy I found this forum... lots of space here to ramble about myself a bit :P.
I'm not quite the usual user, I guess - as I mentioned in my title, I was born in Switzerland to American parents (still don't have a Swiss passport, though...), went/go to school here and have been living with a Swiss fostermother for about eight years now. However, in my heart I know I should be Irish... or anything from Ireland/Scotland/England. I guess my situation is a bit weird since I don't feel as if I've got a real home - I feel neither Swiss nor American (have never been to the US and don't have any desire to do so even though it's my nationality). However, when I went to Ireland two years ago I felt like finally coming home - and today all of my interests (music, films, books, language and so on) circle around the area of GB and Ireland.
I'm eighteen (yes, yes, I know, still young and foolish) and going to a Gymnasium in Zurich (finishing this summer....). I don't have enough money to study abroad as I'd like to after the Matura and am therefore stuck in Zurich... where I will begin to study English at the universtiy in autumn.
But, since I found this forum now, I'm really happy to see that there are lots and lots of English-speaking people around here, and I hope to find some great new stuff while poking around a bit.

Also - If anyone needs help, advice, company, whatever it might be: I'm glad to do what I can, and since I've been in Zurich all my life I might even be able to produce something useful

(so, enough of my endless talk about myself, I'll have a better look at all of the other threads you've got here... oh my, I think I might be a bit ecstatic about this forum)

Hello Raindeer and welcome aboard.

There's nothing wrong with being ecstatic about this forum. I also found it after living here for 11 years. I too, think it's great and a very useful resource. I log in everyday and find something new / useful almost every time.

Once again. Welcome. Glad to have aother member.

Hiya Reindeer what a great introduction. I'm sure you'll have loads to offer to this forum and i for one would love to have a "cuppa" with you some time in the future.
