I need to move.
I need to move.
It’s a rat race and though I was impressed with it for a couple of years – I’m over it. The veil has come off and I’m not into this city anymore. I am thankful for the great job it’s given me, though….so I can’t grouch on it too much.
Born and raised in New Hampshire…. Yes we may have no sale tax or income tax but we make up for it with high property taxes. As much as I hate, constantly hearing “No, sale tax” primary from outa staters or ppl from MA, it does help our eco.
What we love about it?
-The Mtns (hiking)
– Close enough but far enough from family (his family is from ME, Mine from New Husband but still a 45 min to an hour drive to visit them.]
-Having all four seasons even if some people claim all we get is winter…
Growing up in New Hampshire I could never figure out why ppl would ever want to visit us, I grew up in the lakes region so I absolutely hate dealing wih the traffic that comes with it. Honestly theres not an extremely lot to do up north.
Than again I can’t understand why my Fiance would ever get bored going to Old Orchard Beach in ME…..yup you guessed it, he grew up there.
haha, I am so not surprised New Mexico isn’t on this list. Our healthcare is ok, cost of living is ridiculously awful, with a high unemployment rate, huge meth/drug issues, low high school graduation rate, hoorible education systems, and NM is the #1 ranked state for teen pregnancies.
Don’t get me wrong, the wonderful outdoors sports here are awesome, along with our mild winters and summers. I love living here for now, but will not be staying permanently, or raising children here.
I hate NYC, and cannot wait until the day I pack my bags and leave.
Anyone who dreams of living here, do it for a few years and you will probably get it.
@skippydarling: Damn. Are you me? The Fiance and I live right outside of NYC now and commute into the city… and we hate it. We’re bailing early 2014 for Texas. I’m surprised it didn’t make the list, but cost of living there is way more favorable than NYC so that was the selling point for us. Plus we can actually drive our cars there, and they have these weird things called “driveways.” Unheard of in NYC!
Seriously. I cannot wait to be done with school this December so my Fiance and I can l-e-a-v-e…
grew up in hawaii and I miss it sooooo much. I agree with the article as long as you’re not paying for anything.
