After six years away from New Orleans, I’m moving back. I’m eager to be part of the community–a community that seems to prioritize relationships and quality of life. As soon as I switch my driver’s license, sign a lease and register to vote, I’ll kind of be a resident in the city.
But that won’t make me a New Orleanian—at least in the eyes of those claim that title.
I hope to use this blog as a place to explore city identity and digest my experiences rediscovering New Orleans. What does it mean to be a New Orleanian? And how do you become a New Orleanian?
I’m kind of new to the city… but I’m kind of not.
