You know what I find depressing--that a 20 year old person is so uninspired. Technology has dulled the adventurousness of young people. Put away those distractions and allow your imagination to transport you to wherever you want to be. Look at those wires and telephone poles and imagine something no one else has imagined. Maybe a diffent angle of the camera when shooting the picture would help. Always look at the now and imagine what if.....

Amen! As a 22 year old, it is beyond me that some of my peers are incapable of attempting to produce anything artistic or creative. Must we always be hooked into technology for us to be entertained? I certainly hope not.

Her photos wern't all that bad. She has a flickr page and I was frankly surprised that a person with such a mind numbed attitude and childish take on life could produce some decent photos.See for yourself:

Wow sorry you have found such a dislike for Cincy. I , myslef have been here almost a year and LOVE IT. Have found mosy people to be very kind and frindley. But I belive living anywhere is what you make it to be. If your not looking to find things to do well then you can't really see all this city has to offer famlies and singles. There is something for everyone , at least I've found that to be in my case. I myself do not get out much being disabled but the places I have gone I truley enjoyed myself. This city is filled with such history. Whoa what is wrong with the Chili.....Price Hill Chili is awesome...great food and nice little family resturant and did I forget to mention their prices omg....can't go to McD's for less. Taxes...hmmm yes higher then where I came from in FL which we did not pay a state tax there but to me other things that the city has makes up for it. Heck no one likes to pay taxes but it is what it is. Hope you find what your looking for but if you don't go in postive not sure you will find happiness anywhere.
PS PROUD to be a Cincy girl NOW

Hello Everyone

I am about to leave Ohau Hawaii been here over a year............Now have to figure out do I want to come back to West Chester Ohio area, or Savannah GA, to retire??? I am loving the thought of going to Savannah, but feeling guilty about not going to Cincinnati where my family is.......... Whatever shall I do?

If family is the utmost consideration, Cincinnati.

If acceptance of transplants (which you would essentially be because you've moved away from Cincinnati) is a major consideration, Savannah will probably trump Cincinnati. People are just more, at least surface, more approachable and warm down south.

Speaking as a Cincinnati area transplant, I can tell you that this area isn't transplant-friendly. Between the two cities, I'd pick Savannah immediately. If I were from here and/or had a significant number of family members here, then logically I'd pick Cincinnati.

Get to know people and support the institutions that sponsor these activities and you can go to them. Don't like the Bengals? I don't either. But, I could go to a professional football game here if I wanted to and root for the Steelers. Only 32 cities have an nfl team. Did you say you like concerts? Riverbend is as nice a place to listen to the Cincinnati Pops or get wasted and go to the Aerosmith concert next weekend. Oh, you need a big concert every weekend. OK, move to LA. That will improve your lifestyle if you make about $500,000 per year, which is the entry level for good living in LA, Ny, Boston and Phily. Miami? Has anyone ever seen the Miami Art Museum? I have. Its pure crap. Nothing in the entire museum worth paying security guards to protect. Restaurants? Not only do we have great restaurants, they are democratic. Meaning, if you are a peon which most of us are, you can still have dinner at the best restaurant in town. Try that in LA. Sorry, Mr. Peon, we seem to have lost your reservation.

I think things are just fine here. But, then, I've sort have got things arranged the way I like them.
Wilson - awesome! Can't give you a rep point but great, great reply!

Just remember there are both benefits and consequences to that choice. Can Cincinnati deal with the economic CONSEQUENCES of that choice in the long run?
What cities are you referring to here? Sounds, like your touting yourself as being a great American etc, with a huge chip on your shoulder and playing a victim. I've been called allot of bad names in my times, but never generalized a whole area, RACE and community.
