I Hate Where I Live

    I moved from the South up to Wisconsin to be

    closer to my family. Don't get me wrong, a lot of the locals are nice to me, but I hate the weather, (in the 50s in the middle of july today-freezing!), I hate that the city I live in is full of crazy people (two days ago, I almost was attacked twice by two different people in...

    I live in the metro Detroit area

    I have lived in this very small town

    for years. In fact I was even born there. I always felt a bit left out the loop while I lived there and it made me quite... unique (read: unpopular). But then, I moved to this wonderful city with wonderful people that I hold very close to my heart. Too bad good things don't...

    I have no friends here.

    People here are unfriendly, loud, gross and they scare me. The weather here tortures me and I was also born and raised in this craphole and I still live in it and share a room with my little brother. I also feel like the only person in that place who has autism and has been...

    Fish Out Of Water

    For many, the beach is paradise. But not for me. I left a quiet, private life in the mountains of NC to be with my boyfriend in Fort Myers Beach, FL. Besides the warmth and fascinating vegetation, I can't stand it here. I am a mountain girl who was living off-grid in the woods...

    Philadelphia: Hell On Earth

    Ok, when many surveys say Philly is one of the unhappiest (or perhaps least clean, or rudest) cities in the U.S. they are not kidding. The city itself is terrible, especially when you're going to visit the 'attractions', it takes 8 hours to find a parking space and I've never met...

    It is hard to find many people to relate to in

    my state. Words like "creativity" and phrases like "think outside the box" are rate concepts. There is not much substance past high school football, hunting season, and cookie cutter beauty pageants. Ready to skip town.

    Too Many Adjectives To Describe It.
