I'm not religious, yet I live in the south. Go figure. So far that hasn't really worked out all that well for me, but I'm sticking to my beliefs (which are that I have no idea what is correct in that arena - don't try and convert me).
I'm a northern transplant. From O-H-I-O. I hate ohio, which is why I'm now in Atlanta. When I arrived in 2001, a friend of mine described me as "the only northerner I (he) can tolerate". I take pride in that. I still speak my mind and am direct, just tolerable to southern folk I guess.
I'll stop here. Grab a drink with me. Put your phone down and stop txting, messaging, etc. People have forgotten how to interact in real life... Fact!
