    I grew up in NM, in some aspects.

    ..I hated it..and some aspects...I loved it. What I miss the most has to be the Mexican food. So ono! What I hated the most was that everyone outside of NM thought I was a) outside the United states b) spoke Spanish fluently c) probably the only asian there

    Was born here, lived here all my life and if all goes right, I'll die here. All my family is here, a job I love is here, why would I want to move anywhere else. Sure other places are greener, have better shopping, have funner things to do, but they're only places to visit for...

    Glad to Be Here Now Let's Go

    I don't intend to speak for the intire state, however the Farmington area is deffinately worth leaving. Our state motto is "The Land of Enchantment" or so I am told, I think our state motto is deffinately better stated "The Land of Entrapment". Now I don't...
