My name is Haley. I'm not from Oklahoma, but I've lived here for over ten years now. People still regularly make comments like, "well, you're not an actual Oklahoman…" After a recent discussion about this, it was decided by a panel of experts (friends + booze) that I could become an Oklahoman by engaging in a number of Oklahoma related activities.
