Dowondoes it mean where I live currently or where i I was born?
It can mean either. If you are not originally from the country where you are currently living, you can always answer both questions in one response with one of these:

I'm originally from Japan, but now I live in San Diego.
I'm currently living in San Diego, but I'm originally from Japan.

(Change the sentence to reflect your own situation, of course.)

It is where you consider your home town to be. It may be, but needn't be, your place of birth.

in my case, I grew up in A, attended four years of college in B (far from A), lived for two years in C (very, very far from A and B), then seven years in D, one year in E, a year back in A, four years in E, 10 years back in A, ten years in E again, and now live in F. So "Where are you from?" is not an easy question to answer. I really don't feel I am "from" anywhere. In my case, perhaps "Quite a few places, though I was born and raised in A."

i was born in Germany to military parents after 1 year moved to california for remainder of my years. I consider myself to be from california.

When I’m asked this question I see it this way:

1. Is the person asking where I live / coming from (a physical place)

2. What are my origins (I can be born and raised in Japan, but that doesn’t mean I’m Japanese. Honestly, someone can be born on the borderline of the ocean on a ship owned by two territories and that still doesn’t define where “you’re from.”).
