Living in the Sunshine State has its perks

Living in Florida has its perks but there are some disadvantages. But there are more advantages to living in Florida - one is that there is no snow and you live where people vacationed. Here are just Floridan things.

1. Pub Subs

The best pub subs is chicken tenders. Only the South will understand that it's only at Publix and the best time to get a chicken tender pub sub is when it's on sale.

2. Lovebugs

Nasty splats that cover your car a few months out of the year. Not really loved by anyone.

3. Kumquats

These are adorable little citrus fruits that can be found all over the place.

4. Sea Cow

In the South, we call them sea cows not manatees.

5. "It'll pass"

This phrase refers to the on again, off again rain showers throughout the day. Rain comes in short intervals especially during the summer.

6. South Florida is its own state

South is more "North" and North is more "South". Miami acts like New York.

7. Having Hurricane Days

Hurricane Days are real. But sometimes, it meant that you won't have school.

8. Knowing the layout of your local Publix

You know your Publix like the back of your hand.

9. Anything below 70 degrees is cold

Floridans will wear jackets and bring out the Uggs when it gets below 70 degrees.

10. Florida Weather

You have trust issues with the weather because you can literally get rain one minute and then it's sunny the next minute. It can also be winter in the morning and then summer as the day goes on.

11. Season Passes to Amusement Parks

Your family had the annual passes to Disney World or Universal Studios because it's in Orlando and you live in Florida.

12. Football Rivalries

Between Florida State and Florida, it's a love-hate relationship. You hate one team and love the other team.

As it goes without saying, but you would not have trade growing up in Florida for the world.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
