Colorado, I hate the town but the state is okay.

Illinois (as you can see,) and it's okay. I'd rather live in Hawaii, the south, or somewhere in Scandinavia. But the town I live in now is pretty peaceful which I appreciate. Plus, Chicago is culturally bitchin'.

I live in New York, more specifically Brooklyn.
I don't like it, I actually am moving out soon. It's a bitter sweet relationship- I love it but I don't.

It's pretty crowded, expensive as fuuuuuu, dirty, the people are rude and ignorant, and it's near impossible to find a good job and pay for a nice house. Houses here to own are around $700,000+, and a 2 bedroom apartment in a decent neighborhood can run you anywhere from$2-3,000 dollars a month.



Figures. Most people use public transit, and if you DO have a car it'll take you forever to find a parking space.

Everyone thinks it's glamorous and nice, and everyone wants to move here but they don't realize the things that come with it. It kinda blows. The good thing is it teaches you how to work hard and the people I've met in Brooklyn are a lot different than anywhere else (I've moved around a lot) and it's refreshing to meet honest people.

Like I said. It's bitter sweet.
And






Damn, rent is way to damn high lol

My house is 100,000 but I live in the city. Houses in general in Iowa don't cost that much and the cost of living is low.

Also the crime is low..

Normal rent for an apartment would be about 750

A small city?!!!
jeez
I live in a Alaska and the population is only around 800,000 for the whole state.
I live in wasilla but its like inbetween two cities palmer and wasilla
Probably around 80,000 people in my general area.
Some common misconceptions are
"oh wow you have internet?" or "oh you live in an igloo" Yea like i live in an igloo with a 42 inch t.v. .......
OR "hey do you ride polar bears to school, or moose?"
what do they teach you kids down in the lower 48 states. I mean come on






Well, it is a small city compared to the rest of the lower 48 (We don't really say lower 48 here.. we just say America lol)

I really don't know that much Alaska but I bet the scenery is awesome and the DSM 4 says that 50% of Alaskan-native children in isolated villages have at some time used solvents to get high.

I don't mind it here, but it's not my ideal. I would rather live in a state with actual seasons. It's like summer all-year round here. Granted, it rains on occasion, but never snows. I have never once in my life witnessed snow fall to the ground lol.

Don't get me wrong, we have seasons here (the leaves fall in autumn, flowers bloom in spring, etc).but everything sort of blends into one never-ending summer. I guess if you're an outdorsy type, then that's paradise, but i'm more of an indorsy, pensive type.





Trust me, snow falling isn't as magical as you would think, it gets annoying really fast. Also, you have to shovel the driveway... Sometimes you can't get around because the snowplow hasn't done your street (unless you have 4 Wheel Dr.) There also can be 2 feet of snow on the ground

reversely I've never seen the ocean.

This, except I'm an outdoorsy type so I kinda like the never-ending summer, this is my ideal weather.

Of the two big sports here, surfing and mixed martial arts, I've never surfed and I don't do mixed martial arts.

well thats messed up, I didnt know that, it's probably because alcohol is illegal in most villages
and the villages are allowed to make it illegal, but only in certain villages
plus people take weed to the illages and then go sell it and make like 200% profit

I live in a little town called Paris, Texas.
The people here are really friendly and the rent is affordable but, there really isn't much here.
We're currently in the process of an expansion but that doesn't change how long it takes to get to a bigger city from here (2-3 hours)...
I just hope the expansion will make Paris a bit better. :)
All in all, I like it here, and I hope to raise my future family here.

Yeah, you definitely see some interesting individuals here, and lots of violence but they tend to stay off the campus...

Georgia, and I dislike it. I don't have much to say about it, just that I never enjoyed living here.


I'm from Georgia. I'd take your place any day if you'd mind switching to New York...

Right now I'm in Western New York, by the Niagara Falls. It's not all that it's cracked up to be. Sure, the falls itself is a gorgeous spectavle, but everything around it is grade-A ghetto. The mayor and all the higher-ups just don't give a damn for the city of Niagara. You can see the Canadian side of the falls and all its glory. All the tourists from Canada do is come over here to shop since their prices are more expensive than ours. Never do you really see them stick around though.

Raleigh, NC. I'm a fan. Laid back, good food, plenty to do, generally good people. Terrible lower education system, and a few other social issues.

Winters are perfect to me, average of probably around 45-50F. Summers are generally pretty nice outside of a few weeks of 100F at peak.

Its a bit spread out and still fairly rural, but I like seeing trees everywhere. 3-4 hours from the mountains, and 2 hours from the beach.

Fairly inexpensive place to live, although taxes are higher than most other states in the southeast.

I've been all over the US and NC is a good balance. Also generally a democrat state, minus the last couple years, ugh!






Are schooling is pretty good here and high school gradation rates are high. I didn't really think it was a generally democrat state!

New Jersey, by Atlantic City. I don't like it here - there are too many people, and none of them know how to drive. How things will go at an intersection is a guessing game because people don't follow the rules; just the other day I ended up playing chicken with a left-turning truck that didn't want to honor my right of way...

And don't get me started on the jughandles - they are pure madness. I got by just fine without them growing up in (upstate) New York, and I really don't see the advantage to them. I hate having to watch the right side of the road for the turn while also needing to watch the left side of the road to know if I'm near where I would want to make a turn.

The trees here are also screwed up pine trees that try to look like deciduous trees or something... at any rate, I miss the change in foliage as the seasons go by. Speaking of the seasons, it's been way too hot the past few years... and I don't enjoy the hurricanes either. This area is also rather flat, and I find myself missing the hills and mountains. There's just nothing to see here, compared to the views back home.

There are probably things to do here, though the main entertainment seems to be the casinos, which I wouldn't waste my money on... but I hate dealing with the people and the traffic enough that anymore I mostly I stay inside except for work. I've really got to get out of this place, it'd be nice to move closer to my family and friends.









LoL liked that rant. I wasn't familiar with the term "Jughandles" I actually had no idea what you were talking about, so I had to Google it. Yeah, don't have those here lol I don't think anywhere in the mid-west does? Is there any other different road configurations that the Northeastern United States has that other places don't?

Really..... really? Deal with Indian raids? I am dying of laughter right now! are you serous?

Missouri. Best state in the country IMHO. Love it here. Also one of the top states that could survive.. even thrive if separated from the rest of the United States. Its funny how Texans always talk about it but Texas doesn't even make it only the list as a state that could survive divided >.>.


Texas has a large economy that could stand by it's self. Missouri takes in more federal money then it pays in taxes... so basically other states have to pay Missouri's bills. States like Texas and New York who can stand on there own and have a positive transfer of money to the federal government.

So Missouri really couldn't thrive separated from the rest of the United States.. but neither could Iowa lol. How come people from the old confederate states are the only ones that talk about separation? What would the point of it?
