This year I have spent very little time in Michigan, where I grew up. Going to school in Chicago, then working for the summer down in Atlanta kind of keeps me from spending time back home in Michigan. Through these last six months I’ve realized though I love living in these new place I miss many things about Michigan. Here is just a list of some random, unexpected things I miss about Michigan…
- Driving: Living in Atlanta has made me realize that driving can actually be one of the most annoying/detested parts of someone’s day. Though there are no pot holes, you stop at almost every light and are basically going 25mph the whole commute. I miss getting on the high way in Michigan, going 70mph, and getting places fast.
- Michigan Sports: At least in Chicago the White Sox, Blackhawks, and Bears are rivals with the Tigers, Red Wings, and Lions so I people are slightly interested. So far this summer I think I might have been the only person in the state of Georgia that actually knew that the Stanley Cup finals were going on. And the only time I can watch the Tigers is when they’re on ESPN.
- Roads Making Sense: Here in Georgia, every road is winding, so there is no rhyme or reason to the road system they have. The roads are nice, but unless you have a GPS you’re going to get lost.
I don’t what you to think that I hate living here in Atlanta or in Chicago. Sometime I’m going to try and share what’s great about living in each place.
What drives you nuts about where you live?
