I Live In Florida

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 496 People

    Well,

    There a crapload of old people, no one knows how to drive, it's ridiculously hot and humid, and most of the people generally suck. At least, that's how it is where I live :P   Never move to Florida, ahaha.

    Welcome to the Hurricane State

    We call this the Sunshine State.  It's really the hurricane state.  I was here about 4 years ago when we had 4 hurricanes rip through the Tampa Bay area in about 3 weeks' time.  Nothing is more fun than being huddled in your house with no electricity for 5 days...

    Circus Train!

    The circus train just blew thru Palm Beach, pulled by a couple Florida East Coast engins, headed north. Exciting to see, I did not realize they still traveled by train.

    New To Florida

    I just moved to Fort Myers Beach because my boyfriend's job sent him here. He is always working so I'm often alone. It seems hard to meet people here because they are either tourists or 20 years older than me. I would love to have some friends here. I miss the mountains and it...

    It's A Bit Bright

    I have lived in Florida my whole life, well give or take a month here or there. For the most part I like it. I don't live too close to a beach but I am surrounded by springs. I don't like the cold, so the heat is nice. I love the humidity. I can be outside for like an hour and...

    Love/Hate Relationship With Miami.

    So I basically grew up in Miami. While I love Miami, I also hate it. I've seen Miami change in my lifetime. I remember when I was a kid, we were the only Cuban family on the block. Funny,living here I'm not that aquatic at all. I think that the last 4 times I've been to the...

    I Hate It Here.

    I am originally from Baltimore, Maryland. Where we actually had seasons. It gets way too hot here, it is always really humid, and as soon as I am out of school I am moving back home. I have really fair skin, so I do not think that Florida "the sunshine state" is the...

    I have lived here in FL

    for some time now. I really love living by the beach and being kissed by the sun daily. When I moved here I was a different person, I was colder, jaded by the hustle and bustle of city life, but by meeting new friends and leaving the past behind I am truly a better person.

    Born and Raised... only left once to GA so guess I'm stuck here.  Right now, in the summer you can count on rain daily. The hurricanes should be starting soon so that's a whole new adventure. Being that we are basically an island, when it rains things flood. I love it though...
