Is there anyone else that doesn't like Colorado Springs.I dislike this town alot and actually the whole state of Colorado.Theres no diversity here.It doesn't have a city feel to it.Im 15 years old and to me there is nothing to do here.All the people my age out here are boring.All the people out here always talk about the mountains or how great the weather is.I've lived here 2 years and the weather isn't that good.In the summer its really dry,in the winter you get a blizard every week,and in the spring it rains every day.If I was old enough I would move back to my hometown Cleveland right now.Oh and at the schools out here the kids all try and be funny all the time even when what there saying is usually not the least bit funny.

Thanks for posting. You must be having a bad day or something. There are tons of things to do here, turn off your PC and go do them. Trust me, when you are 30 years old, you'll appreciate this city.

Advice from someone 4 times your age: Study your brains out, get in a great university, get all the learning you can. Then, go where you want, be who or what you want. Like a wise person once said "living well is the best revenge."

You sounds like most 15yr old city kids I know. Not enough to do other than play. Get a job at least. I am sorry you don't seem to have any friends but it takes being a friend to have a friend. You are homesick. Too bad you were moved at that age. It is harder to adjust. But the army kids do it all the time. So you are not alone. Don't be such a crab and join in. You are comparing everything to home. You are homesick and are not giving the other kids a chance to even like you. Who wants to be a friend to someone with the attitude you have. Lighten up.

Sorry you have no intentions of trying something different. By not staying the summers, you are telling me. You don't want or will not look around and enjoying your experiences, until such time you can go back to CT to live full time. It is a shame. There are so many things in so many places to not get yourself the chance to see. Your loss, I am afraid.

The only other place I would ever want to live at would be Chicago cause its very diverse,and there is alot of things to do there.The main reason I don't like Colorado is because Im an urban living person and Colorado is all spread out even Denver.Ive been to Denver 6 times and wasn't inpressed by it.

per previous posts, this is coming from someone (CTownNative) that actually wants to live in a bad neighborhood. I'm originally from Chicago. It's a great city and everything, but I definitely wouldn't want to live in one of the bad areas. So I guess there aren't too many of those in COS then. Good! Even more reason to move there.

CTown Denver is more diverse, and sorry you dont like the Springs. I dont like it either and I'm from Denver. Sometimes a place is just not right for you, and there is nothing to be done. Follow your gut, if you cant stand it in the Springs then get back to where you love it, life is too short to spend miserable. But FYI when I was in High school kids were the same, I couldnt wait to get out. Follow Mikes advice, go to college for something necessary and get a great job, I bet theres great colleges in Cleveland waiting for you!

CT-
Our son moved out here with us. He shared many of your feelings, and a year after high school, he moved back to SoCal. He has done well and is attending a community college and working full time. Our daughters stayed in SoCal, finishing school and working. They like CO, but prefer the faster lifestyle that SoCal offers. Everyone has different preferences and those will likely change as you age. I agree with Mike-

A little work now will save you a whole lot of grief later.
