Need to Get Out
I currently live in Greenville SC, I hate it, and I have always hated it since my family move down here from Ohio in 1994. I am everything what the south is not (atheist, anarcho-communist, hate cars, and hate country music) but also would say what America is not but especially the south. I also know that many people in the south would want me out and hopefully I well be able to get out again soon.
I did live outside of the south when I live up in New York from 2006 until 2009. I would still be up there but my wife left me and the only place I could go to was my mother who lives in SC. I wish I could stay up there but I had not where to go and I did not have the money to live on my own. I love it up there though I wish I were closer to NYC (I was about 50 miles away and it was about 20 bucks for a ticket on the LIRR).
So anyway, I should be out of the south sometime next year and back up in New York and nearer to NYC. I hope that others that hate the south and are living down here will someday be able to get out and live in a place that makes you happy. Life is too short to be in a place that you hate and make you miserable.
