I was only a wee boy when I left Scotland, about 6 years old when I came to Australia
I still have memories of primary school (elementary school) and I have very clear memories of the house I lived in, or my Grandparents house.
To me I am Australian, but there is a part of me that still feels a little bit Scottish. There are certain cultural elements of Australia that seem foreign. I don't appreciate Australian Rules Football, I prefer to watch football (soccer). I drink beer from pint glasses not half pints, I like words such as prat, git and bollocks. I don't understand the new phenomenon of hyper-patriotism surrounding ANZAC day.... When in my opinion, Remembrance Day is a for more appropriate avenue of remembering the war dead. I don't like the beach nor am I am the stereotypical sporty Australian.
But then I have been out of Scotland so long, that I am not sure that I could culturally call myself a Scot or a Brit, but nor do I associate strongly within Australian culture. Don't get me wrong I am a loyal Australian citizen, its just that I have a weird disjoint with country..... But then again, I do not long to go back to Scotland.
All rather weird.
