Hey all. I just thought that since this is an international board. And since people were from all over the place, we should educate each other about where we live, and tell somethings people would'nt normally know.
Where I live: Maryland/DC Suburbs, USA
What I like about it:
I love it here. But I hate it for the same reason. It's faker than Star Jones's hair. Only in the sense that this place is an illusion. Everyone has bucu bucks. Everyone has a Mercedes. Everone is a lawyer, doctor, or indian chief. Everyone's kids go to a good school. Everything is peachy keen. But unfortunately it isn't the real world for 98% of the population.
What's the weather like?:
Up and down. It can be really nice, and really messed up. In Decemeber it can be 70. In April it can snow. Maryland weather is
What are the people like?
Assholes. Cool Assholes, but we're assholes. Some people are nice, but the majority of the people here are very self-serving and snide. But everyone is like that so you don't really notice it unless you go somewhere else and everyone is nice. It was a culture shock.
What are the kids/youth like?
Let's just say GNC sells lots of Chaser, and everyone is a fan of the song "Because I was High"
A common misconseption:
Hmm. Well most people don't know too much about Maryland. Other than people are arrogant. And well its true. But we're arrogant in a good way
Something you may not know:
Maryland is the fourth richest state in the country. And my county is the second richest state in the country
The Marriots live here, Mike Tyson lived down the street from my brother (
) and you used to see Michael Jordon here and there. Also every politician you can think of walks around town, and we are in the top 10 AIDS states (Damn Baltimore). Also, they're more gay/lesbians than redheads.
Something You'll Love About Here:
Beautiful. Everything, everyone is very attractive. Lots to do. (well kinda) Very upscale, EVERYTHING is upscale. Very classy.
Something You'll Hate About Here:
Everything is ludicrously expensive. If you don't make atleast 70,000 a year, don't even try moving without a roomate. And that's for the CHEAP places.
Well thats all I can think of. Feel fry to add!
As some people live in places I can't even pronounce, looking forward to reading some entries
