  1. Sadly, you're used to having friends leave the country for good.

 

  1. With that being said, you definitely have long-distance friendships... and possibly long-distance relationships too.

  1. You've developed an accent from both friends and teachers at school.

 

  1. You're used to people asking about your nationality.

  1. After every holiday, half your class—including yourself—is jetlagged.

 

  1. You've skipped school to visit embassies.

 

  1. You vividly remember dressing up for international costume days during primary/elementary school.
  1. You can say "hello," "thank you," and count to ten in a bunch of languages, thanks to your friends!

 

  1. You learned to spell things differently to others (colour, not color!), as well as use completely different words for certain things (biscuit, not cookie!)

 

  1. And, you've suffered through IGCSES, Edexcel, IB—or all of the above.
