Default Do you like where you currently live?

I currently live in Eastern Tennessee.

The weather here is fine for the most part plus the mountains are nice to look at.
However, I don't really fit in with the culture of the area.

All-in-all it's a mixed bag. I don't absolutely hate it but I certainly wouldn't mind moving somewhere else.

So what about you all? Do you love where you live or do you want to move away as soon as possible?

North-east TeXaS is an ok place to live. The summers are just too hot. Its not the heat that bothers me, but the humidity.

South Australia. I can't stand the dry hot Summers here and I dislike the Southern Hemisphere seasons. Christmas time needs to be cold and cozy, not stifling hot.

If it were that simple, I'd live somewhere in Europe. I like cold weather.

I'm in California, the Central part of it. North or South of California refuse to claim my city. We're on the borderline of the state. lol

I hate living in California. I liked Oregon when I took a trip to it. NO TAX on the stuff! I don't really know where I want to move to though if I could.

I lived in Ohio all my life. The winters are bad especially in Cleveland because of the lake effect. Summers can get humid.

There's nothing here for me job or school wise so I'm moving soon for grad school and probably not coming back. I'm not going to know where until April because my first choice waitlisted me but all of the schools I applied to are in cities I'd rather live in (DC, NYC, Atlanta, LA, etc.).

I used to live in Thessaloniki, the 2nd biggest city in Greece. It was probably the best place in the world. The city is so... alive, there are young people everywhere, many festivals and parties everyday, tons of activities and anything you can imagine. Plus the climate is really good (being a port in the Mediterranean sea), with warm but not extremely hot summers and generally soft winters. On top of that, Thessaloniki is 30 km away from Chalkidiki, one of the best beaches Greece has to offer.

Now I live in Aachen, a small town in Germany. Its heart is its university in which almost 1/6 of the population of Aachen is attending. There are many uni students around but the town is somehow quiet and has no spark. Coming from Thessaloniki it's even weirder to me. People seem coldand distant most of the times and they don't really seem to be having fun when they are partying and stuff. Still the town is beutiful and is located in the heart of Europe, making trips in other countries really easy. The weather here is nuts though, mosly cold and rainy...

I miss Greece.

I hate my home town far south suburbs of Chicago. It started out nice, neighbors were cool and it was actually safe to play outside. Then people from the projects of Chicago started moving in and these are the people want to think they are gang bangers and terrorizers. My house is the only house that hasn't been broken into in my entire neighborhood and that's because there is always someone there and we have a big dog.

My town lost a bunch of businesses too. There's only a McDs, Dollar General, 2 gas stations, and a grocery store. And a few smaller businesses. The next town is where everyone usually goes for business. The gas stations aren't even safe to go to anymore since people are getting shot and robbed.

I loved my college town when I first moved here. It was pleasant, everyone said hi, there were plenty of school events. I didn't encounter any racism until recently. Now the town is fairly boring and the people all seem irritated. There's not much to do when you move out of the dorms/residence halls. And somehow the same type of people who moved from the city and terrorized my home town started to come to my college town. They didn't even attend the school, they just came down randomly to visit some 'friends'.

I need to move to a deserted island

Right now, I live in Maryland. I hate it just for the fact that there are way too many people on the road here, and they drive like total idiots, like even more so than normal. Even though I was getting sick of my assignment in North Carolina, I like the state a lot more than Maryland. We shall see where I go next.

I currently live in Florida. Right now it's "Winter," however it's getting to 80 degrees. . . Plus, mosquitoes, and the humidity is like a sauna. For awhile I was thinking of moving to North Carolina, but I'm not sure if that's a good idea yet.

^ North Carolina is so beautiful, my mom is from the Smokey Mountians and I spent my summers there as a kid. There wasn't much to do when I got older though, everyone hangs out in a walmart or food lion parking lot. Kinda sad.

I love living in the suburbs of south jersey. 10 mins west- center city philly. 10 mins north- rural pine barrons. 45 mins east- jersey shore. I got it all. My only (potential) problem is that philly just decriminalized the mary j, yet jersey is still strict as hell.

I live in Milwaukee Wisconsin.... in the hood.... so not really. But free rent... so worth it.

Eh but really Milwaukee is pretty decent, I just wish this state had more to do than drinking. We have a trillion bars and our last arcade closed 5~ years ago now, sad.

Nope can't say I do. Alabama is a semi pretty state but the people are all idiots, the weather is more bipolar than a girl on her monthly, and there's not that much to do.

My area of the south surburbs of Chicago isn't too bad. Neighbors keep to themselves but are friendly. Too cold however.

I currently live in Florida. In a small county i have always lived in. The weather is usually very hot and extremely humid. Today was a nice 80 degrees perfect for the beach. Unfortunately i am very pale and burn very easily. Along with the fact that my SO (who is young) recently had a melanoma (a Deadly skin cancer) we avoid praising the sun as much as possible. The only thing to do here is basic shopping at our very boring small 1 level mall or drink.

There are not any clubs to visit unless you go at least an hour away.Most people my age leave for college and don't come back so it is very hard to obtain friends to hang out with. The area i live in is full of very grumpy elderly people or snowbirds who think they are better then everyone. By the way they are horrible drivers and i almost get in car crashes daily due to them.

As for jobs there is nothing other then minimum wage at mcdondonalds/walmart/etc or working in a medical career due to all the elderly. Yet the rent here is insanely expensive. So most people here are extremely stressed out due to lack of wages. My best options at this point are to start looking at Orlando or out of state.

So i guess that would be no.

I just moved into my own place, with a roommate, closer to Memphis. I feel like I live in civilization again. First time I've lived away from parents since I was married. I'm a little home sick and going to miss the extra money, but it's all worth it.

I've lived in Manhattan for the past several years. Grew up in the suburbs, moved there for college, and... done deal. Fell in love. I love the vibrancy, the constant throngs of people, the 24-hour convenience, even the dirty grittiness. If you can't find something or someone in New York, you'll never find it anywhere. Suburbs feel eerily dead to me now--idyllic, but empty.

I just moved to San Francisco temporarily for my job. It's definitely got a different vibe from New York, but it's nice... more laidback, less self-absorbed. And clean! But... to quote Mark Twain, "The coldest winter I ever had was a summer in San Francisco." The guy wasn't kidding. I miss my hot and humid New York summers

I live in Midland, TX. The current temp. is not bad, but our A/C is not working very well. So, it gets a bit hot inside. During the day in Summer, the heat is too much for me. I can take it. It's just that I would rather it be Spring or Winter most of the time. Any day in the low 70's and mid to high60's is great for me. As far as geographical, It's flat and boring. No mountains or other terrain besides flat land, dirt and dirt.

Cultural wise, we have a heavy Hispanic population. So, there's several Mexican food trucks in a certain part of the city and as you would guess, even more Mexican restaurants. Often times, you'll be sitting at a redlight and an individual will slowly roll up beside you with all four windows down, blaring Tejano or some other genre of Spanish music from their vehicle. Now, don't get me wrong - I'm not saying there is a problem with any of that.

I actually like it here. I've lived here for all 27 years of my life and I don't think I'll ever move away (even though I really want to at times). Since the oil boom started a few years ago, the town became too crowded. Crime went up, fatal wrecks were a daily occurrence.

There's Friday night Highschool football, a triple A Major League Baseball affiliate Midland Rockhounds and in the town adjacent to us is a minor league hockey team and a semi-professional football team. Other than that, there really isn't any more entertainment than sports bars and some hip/hop clubs.

I moved to NYC a few weeks ago. People keep telling me how it cool it has to be to live here. Honestly, there isn't anything special about the outer boroughs. Manhattan is the only part of NYC that's amazing. And it really is something else. I was debating living in NYC or in Jersey my first year. I decided on living in Brooklyn because I thought it'd be nice to actually be in the city but it isn't. Restaurants close down by 10 PM. Way more shootings than there should be anywhere. It also costs more than Jersey too. It still takes me like, 40+ minutes to reach midtown. Those trains are slow and too loud for me to read.

I'd move if it wasn't for my year-long lease. Noise is a big problem too. I keep hearing jobless musicians play in the subway stations and outside of my apartment.

The public libraries in Manhattan are really impressive, though. Which is usually where I hangout for free wifi and air conditioning until school starts. It's so hot here.
