If you were to pick out the best thing about being a Halvsie, what would it be?
Having he best of both worlds. I can go into Lil' Tokyo in Los Angeles and be a buddahead, yet mingle with the majority white folk in the rest of society.
best thing of being a haaafu...hmm... many good things.. I guess the best thing I can underline is the fact that I was priviledged to grow up knoinw two -completely different -worlds in parallel...I think that itself is a treasure...

however I have realized that there are haafu who havent had any relation with their other half country and they only look haafu but dont feel haafu at all.
Well i have to admit that is a kinda interesting angle on things. I've been thinking on it for a while and i can't see any advantages or disadvanteges of beeing halvsie. Though it is cool that i have got to travel around the world because moms and pops come from opposite sides of the globe. But i can't see it as a "best" kinda thing because traveling can be done anyway from whatever place of origin.

Kinda weird me asking and not saying but honestly that is why i am asking. Because i am not sure of my feelings on the topic.

Thanks for contributing to the both of ya. <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />

The endless ways you can twist your heritage to joke about stuff! Since I'm half Finnish I can for example both claim that I can drink way more alcohol than others, but if things mess up (as the often do) I can say that I was feeling particularly Japanese that evening.

OR when I'm socially awkward, people can just disregard it by saying "don't worry about him, he's japanese and they are a little weird".
