Horrible place to live!!! Posted On: 4/11/2012 11:03:37 AM
I moved to Arizona in 1997 when I was in sixth grade and have hated it with a passion the entire time I've been here. I would've already moved, but unfortunately, something always comes up that prevents me from getting out here. The people here are completely rude, shallow, and superficial. The weather is unbearable. I have two children and I can't even bring them to the park between the months of May to September because they'll burn themselves on the playground equipment. The temperature is between 95 and 120 degrees majority of the year. You have to have bottled water everywhere you go, so you don't dehydrate. If you have small children you can't leave your car in uncovered parking because car seats become scorching hot within five minutes with no air conditioning and will literally burn your child. The schools here are HORRIBLE. When I moved here when I was in sixth grade, the school I attended was two years behind my old school. I was "learning" (more like reviewing) things in sixth grade that I had already learned in fourth grade in the Midwest. Unfortunately, schools are no better now. My son is in first grade and the homework is ridiculously easy, even for first graders. They underestimate the kids here. ASU is a JOKE. It is probably one of the worst schools in the country. All the students do there is party. They get their degrees with minimal work and C averages. ASU only cares about money, as do most of the people in this godforsaken state. Racism and discrimination are HUGE problems here. This state is completely backwards. It is like Hell on Earth. Don't move here if you don't want to feel like the life is being sucked out of you every day!
