It is an odd feeling, and at the same time, it feels like nothing at all.
Today marks the day that I officially became a Tennessean. It's been a 6 month journey to get to this point, but as of today, I am legally licensed and registered to vote.
The odd feeling I'm referring to was the act of handing over my old California state license. I've been asked for it so many times in so many places, but I always got it back. This time, I didn't. It's gone. The last, physical thing that tied me to California is gone.
On paper, from this point forward, there is no record of me being from California.
