    Iowa Is My Place Forever

    I've lived in Iowa for my whole life, and i'm completely loving it here. The reason is, that I've been to many other states, and I've absolutely had all of them. Examples: CA: Rude, ignorant people, who have no regard for anyone but themselves. NV: They wont even bother to look...

    Lived In Iowa All My 25 Years Of Life

    When I was younger I couldn't wait to get out of my hometown but when I finally did I just wanted to go right back. I live in Newton or the drug capital of Iowa as my sister calls it.

    I live in Cedar Rapids.

    I love Iowa but not a fan of this city. I live on the SE side though, and if anyone is from here or near here, you might have heard, there is a lot of shootings and stabbings and petty crime here. It could be a beautiful city. I have met some pretty amazing people here, though...

    And I love it. This was not always the case,

    but I've come to really appreciate living near Des Moines as well as the small town life. You can have a social life or disappear into your slowed-down private life. It's great. :)

    Out of the Fryng Pan, Into the Fire?

    About nine months ago I moved from Nebraska... To Iowa. From one lonely place, to another, heh. The people here seem friendly enough... So long as they're not 'my age'. People my age seem to avoid me like the plague. Why is it all the older/elderly women here seem to *love* me...

    I moved to Iowa 12 years ago,

    from Nova Scotia, Canada. Except for the extreme weather, I really like it here. Super nice people. Lots of beautiful, rolling hills and parks to explore. This is the unique amphitheater at Lowe park in Marion. Very pretty place to walk around and has unique art and a building...
