Wow, sorry for the late response… Been caught up with finals.
Yes and no. I’d probably want to eventually live in the states… But at the same time, there’s just something about home that makes you want to stay. It’s funny, because whenever a kid moves down here, all that person wants to do is leave. A lack of things to do (as compared to the states), too many feau’s, and the temperature!
However, they start missing Samoa as soon as they leave. Idk, to each his own.
Personally, I’d prefer Hawaii. They have a taste of what we have, along with a better modernize community. It’s basically the chill-ness of Samoa, along with stateside culture. I’m attending UH Manoa in Jan. for tennis, so I’m pretty excited.
Western Samoa is…. different. Although we are only 25 mins. away (by plane), our cultures differentiate in a bunch of ways. Examples? We have about 70,000 people, they have over 200,000. Our drinking and smoking ages are American standards, while I’ve seen a 6 year old smoking over there. Uh, they still discipline their children through abuse, while that is banned down here (although it still happens sometimes). Basically, local life is a little easier than Western. We still incorporate strong morals into our families, culture and religion, it’s just they have it a little harder. That’s why thousands of them have moved here, because if better pay and living.
Enough with the negative, island wise? Both islands are extremely beautiful. We each have our own hidden waterfalls, beaches, and different forms of entertainment. I’ve been blessed to travel all around the pacific, and honestly? American Samoa is the best island in the Pacific. That’s a FACT. ;)
Feel free to ask anything else. =)
thanks. those ironman sb’s are dope!
A tattoo is a true poetic creation, and is always more than meets the eye. As a tattoo is grounded on living skin, so its essence emotes a poignancy unique to the mortal human condition.
