I Don't Think Iowa Is Such a Bad Place

    Iowa City

    So I lived there for a short time, I worked at a Major Telecommunications company when they had their call center there.  I have to say I kinda liked it.  I miss going to Perkins with friends after work and to some of the bars around.  And I liked the people a lot...

    Fields Of Dreams ...

    I was truly shocked when I saw this group.  People who appreciate Iowa!  Amazing! As a life long resident, I have to admit, I often haven't appreciated it enough.  The people are kind, always ready and willing to lend a hand.  I've had several...

    Not As Horrible As Some People Think

    Lots of people associate bad things with Iowa.  They think about long unending cornfields, small towns where the population is mainly hicks, and teenagers who graduate high school to go on to a long career at mcdonalds.  Well I want to point out the good things about...

    You'Re Wrong.

    I've grown up here, and it sucks. As a teenager, the kids are pathetically sheltered. They think the world revolves around them, because most of them have never seen anything but the Midwest. Life is bubble-wrapped, and pop culture gets here eight months late. I guess people are...

    A Woman On The Porch, Just Rocking

    For as long as I can remember I have wanted to visit Iowa. I have no idea why but I have always had this fantasy that I am driving down a two lane road, I look to the right, and there is a woman sitting on her porch rocking. She lives on a corn farm. She is a picture of serenity...

    Iowa

    Since I joined this group, I've changed my mind. Iowa is boring, and so is the Midwest. I'm planning on moving out west to Oregon in a couple of years.

    I Really Can't Say Anything Bad About Iowa.

    It's quiet here. I live in a small town near Sioux City. Sometimes it can be a little bit hard to get to places you desire to go to. Walmart, a shopping mall.. just about anyplace to go out for an even dinner or movie. That is okay though. I can deal with driving a short way. I...
