>tfw you're not the least white person on this board
feels good man
It should be, but I'm cutting it shorter due to the fact that I started uni at 17, and took summer classes as well as ones during the regular year. So I graduate next spring at 20 with my undergraduate, and then I'll be going straight into a 1 year full time masters in the UK. Generally here you start uni at 18 and graduate at 22.
No, it's okay!
sorry roast, but what kind of person actually does that?
i feel obliged to give you the opportunity to make fun of me
I need to go to the university
What should I study?
Too bad I never had this talk with my grandparents and my parents don't know much
Am I white?
Nobody knows what the grandma was, she could have been part native or even just something swarthy like Romanian or something. All I know is that she had tan skin and black hair.
Canadian province or province in Italy my ancestors were from?
Northern Ontario (the not shit part)
Dad's side: Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Northeast)
Mom's Side: Apulia (Southeast)
When her sons (my father, my uncle and my aunt, my other uncle died) were grown up and she didn't have to keep working 18 hours a day she decided she wanted to experience what she had missed because of her abusive husband
she had like 10 boyfriends in the past 10 years and i've seen her whatsapp when she asked me to fix her phone (she couldn't install something) she had tons of random men, and i didn't have the courage to look at the conversations.
Now some dude proposed to her.
I wish this wasn't true but it is.
>mfw when I leaved two unis for literally no reason and now have turned 20
Sometimes old women get lonely, my grandmother is 93 and its been almost a decade since her husband died. Now she hangs out with some other old guy which is kinda like her boyfriend, it makes them feel special again. What your grandmother is doing is very extreme though
Yes, i know. She had a boyfriend that was a really cool dude, rich, nice to her grandsons and in general a great guy. Then he got sick and she ditched him for some random dude that i overheard her saying to her sister (my aunt-grandma) that he "does everything in bed"
Kek, thanks >>53746301 But yeah, that. He's very kind, born in Russia but then lived in the UK from 9-17. He speaks Lithuanian, Russian, and English. Really loves his culture and teaching me about it. It's really neat because I learn a lot. But yeah, I was surprised he'd go for an American but yeah!
And that's neat, were you born in the UK?
All my ancestors are brazilians
I'm full blood huemonkey
I don't believe I share this place with people like this
твн It's amazing for me that people even know that far back
I've gone back to the 1700s with Italian ancestors, and Italy doesn't even have that great records. Other European countries can go back to the 1500's easily.That's like 17 generations.
Where did you even get the information? I guess if your family made an effort to write it down throughout the generations then it would be easy. I would imagine that the only other way would be to dig through church records in remote villages.
Not even. My grandmother died before I was born, and I was able to ask my aunt what my grandmother's mother's maiden name was and through Ellis Island documents I narrowed down the town, and then I found my great-grandparents' marriage record, and then I just kept tracing back through online records. It's not as hard as it sounds.
I know my grandpa's names and my grandma's maiden name, and the villages that some of them were born in, so that's not a problem. I've never had anything come up on those ancestry websites (I actually tried pretty hard because I was supposed to find it for a middle school project once). Honestly, it doesn't really matter to me, I'm more interested in how people manage to do it than actually doing it myself. Though if the information was easily available I would give it a look.
My mom's mom was from Warsaw and my mom's dad was an orphan from who knows where.
They look really comfy though
