    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    I HATE FLORIDA!!!! I hate this dumb, hot, flat, stupid, ugly, rude, nasty, selfish, boring, crushing, oppressive, conformist, depressing, blinding, crazy, doped, miserable, murderous state. There's a reason Florida looks like America's d*** -- that's because it is. And like the d...

    Florida Is Boring!!!

    I have relatives in Florida. Even as a toddler I knew that state as no good. The people are boring and unenthused, it's too hot to enjoy nature, which may I add, is dry, ugly, brown, and dying, and there's nothing enteresting there. Everywhere I go there's a Walmart, Beals, or K...

    I'm 13 years old, I've lived in this place my

    entire life, and I've never been out of state. I absolutely despise it here, I really HATE it. Now, I've never met the inconsiderate people that everyone talks about, but I have my own anger to deal with. Basically, most people come down here to get away from winter. DON'T DO IT...

    so happy to see others

    who hate Florida lol. I've been here for 5 years now and as a person who has literally traveled the world, I can say this is hands down the worse place I've lived. Before you ask "why don't you just move" I'll simply say, a sick parent brought me here and I will be leaving soon...

    The Stories

    I love most everyone's stories on here and I too feel the pain, depression and unrest of all of you. I am going to do my best to get out before summer hits once again. (Does summer ever really go away here?) It is going to be very difficult but I plan to sell everything I own...

    Stay Away From Florida For Your Sanity

    I have lived in Tallahassee for 15 years. I have hated every minute of it. I'm from Atlanta and I should have stayed there. But, lured by a warm climate and a great scholarship offer I came to school here and was crazy enough to stay in Florida to work. What a big mistake...

    I think I can summarize the Florida experience

    in a simple couplet: If you live in your body, Florida's fine But this place is Hell if you live in your mind. If you like the heat and don't think, maybe you can get by without too much misery.

    I come back from a delightful trip abroad to

    northern climes, return to a depressing blast of furnace-like heat and, once home, turn on the radio to Classical South Florida, my favorite, go-to radio station. Only there's static. And then some music I don't recognize. It's certainly not Beethoven. No, Classical South...

    I see a lot of the experiences here are just

    like I would have said them myself. Another thing I would like to add is that, the very first thing I noticed when I moved to Florida were the blended neighborhoods. I was trying to distinguish the ghettos from regular middle class ones but couldn't. You see a couple of...

    Don't waste your life here. I came down here in 2010 thinking that it would be nice to live in a vacation state. I guess I was wrong. I haven't made any friends. Every time I walk into a room the people who were talking to each other suddenly stop talking, but then as soon as I...

    If my child were to die in FLORIDA,

    I wouldn't cross the border to ID their body (Sheriff's probably just trying sucker me in) The only real money made in that state is by Law enforcement backed by the court system! [TRUTH] DO NOT VENTURE INTO THIS 'everyone is a criminal' STATE!

    People who get tired of Northern winters tend

    to move to Florida looking for paradise and a place without snow. The problem is, it's too extreme of a change. Unless you LOVE hot weather (and I don't mean Michigan summer hot. I mean sauna hot), you're just exchanging a miserable winter for a miserable summer. As someone who...
