I then subjected myself to further torture by moving to Cleveland for college. There I learned about lake effect snow, how to be a scorned sports fan, and the meaning of a liberal arts education. The city of just-not-quite-good-enough-to-win-it-all, but they remain eternally optimistic for next year.
From there I spent 10 years in the South. Not the South like Alabama or Louisiana, but Atlanta. Charming, sophisticated, traffic clogged, Atlanta. Where everything is named Peach-something or other, they still believe in southern hospitality, and you always crave Chikfila on Sundays. Great town though and most of my family and friends are still there.
Now I am here...in New Jersey...yay Jersey! Actually it's not that bad, but I'm keeping my options open now that my lease is up (hear that Brooklyn). I spend plenty of time in Manhattan and Brooklyn, but I also enjoy venturing out in Hoboken and Jersey City.
