You’re from the East Coast.

image

Maybe you’re a New Yorker, or maybe you’re from Boston—either way, your word choice indicates that you’re more familiar with the Atlantic than the Pacific. You fold your pizza, you know what “janky” means, and you’re wicked smart.

You’re from the Midwest.

image

You’ve seen more than a few cornfields in your time, and based on your vocabulary, you’re a proud Midwesterner. Your slang is colorful, don’tcha know, and you know the value of a good hot dish potluck.

You’re from the West Coast.

image

Based on your word choice, you’re from the Best Coast. You’re a trendsetter, and that means you’re hella awesome. You take the freeway, and you’re definitely not basic. Nice, bruh.

You’re from the South.

image
