    Estar is something that is a state of being, so temporary. Ser is permanent. For example Soy de Georgia - I'm from Georgia is permanent. Estoy aqui (I'm here) is not.

    An easy way to remember the different between SER and ESTAR is this... Ser is used to classify and identify permanent or lasting attributes. If the general rule isn´t specific enough for you, think of the acronym DOCTOR, which stands for Description, Occupation, Characteristic, Time, Origin, and Relationship. General Estar Rule Estar is used to indicate temporary states and locations. If the general rule doesn´t suffice, think of the acronym PLACE, which stands for Position, Location, Action, Condition, and Emotion.

    How you feel and where you are is when you use the verb estar! helpful little rhyme. and as said before, ser is permanant. Like you ARE skinny. it's not like tomorrow you're fat. But when you ARE sad, its temporary (I hope!) so you use estar.
