no culture - 11/24/2007
this city is just a small town spread out over too many hills. there is absolutely NO culture to this town. the only breath of cultural air you get is from the college students. there are excellent colleges here and that's the only reason i live here. the cold weather seems to come around september and somewhat warms up around may. very long winters, very short hot and humid summers. mosquitos are awful in the summer. public transportation is decent - the cab drivers are to be avoided. this town is dead except for the bars (not clubs, bars). i'm not a drinker so that leaves me bored when i have spare time. this leaves a lot of kids bored and there tends to be a lot of vadalism, thefts, robberies, and drug use. this is a great place to be if you're going to school because it's too cold to be outside so you're inside doing homework. also, since there is nothing (and i'm serious about nothing) to do then you're not tempted to skip your studies for anything. if you raise a family here, get your kids involved in scouts, dance, sports, or something or they'll get bored and become the scum i see every day.[read more...]
