Hi everyone, this is a semi-serious post. For a couple of years now, I have always wanted to visit America, and if I enjoyed their culture, then I would possibly consider moving there (which state, exactly, I am not sure). However, in the last three or so months, I have noticed that I say some words in the American way (tomatoes, lever, etc.), and I have always preferred using 'z's in words, such as optimize and maximize, which British people do not do. What I'm asking is, are these signs? Signs that I should take the plunge and move to America, embracing a new culture and society, new food and new people? What is the culture like out there? I think I would like to live in New York, or close to it, as that's where most of the big publishers and agents are. So as I say, semi-serious post, people. Any actual help would be good, but silliness is also accepted. Thanks.
