Which of these is correct:

  1. Where I should be.

or

  1. The place I should be.

?


Context: When you are going to fill the autobiography section on SE, it says 'Location' and it's supposed to write USA or something like that and I wanted to write one of the 2 above.


What are other alternative ways to mean the same?

Thank you.

In my opinion, "Where I should be" is the clause functioning like "the place in/at/etc which I should be", or "the place I should be in/at/etc.". E.g I don't know where I should be. ; Where should I be?

"Where I should be." is fine as a joke in that context. I think.

    But you're not answering the question. Is it correct to fill "Location" with just "Where I should be" as a kind of joke?

  • @RubioRic: the only thing I edited was the context, my question has been always there

    @Isa It's because as you said "it says 'Location' and it's supposed to write USA or something like that", but instead you write something else like "where I should be".

"where should i be" and "the place i should be", virtually mean the same thing. There is really no other way you need to put it unless there is a context.

Another way is:

Where I meant to be
