The ‘Where are you from?’ meme reminds us to look at a map every once in a while
Growing up in a small town, leaving said small town, and then having to explain where you’re from to curious people you encounter for the rest of your life is exhausting.

Trying to explain geography to someone completely unfamiliar with an area is tough, and finally, Twitter users have found a way to accurately illustrate the frustration associated with describing your place of origin.
Behold: The hometown meme.
