Once I get back for good after the semester is over...

I will not miss Oklahoma AT ALL. A few select people, as well as supercell thunderstorms, yes, but otherwise, heck no!

I did at first, but I moved and promptly had a baby, and wasn't able to get out and make new friends, and had a hard time as I wanted my mommy and sisters. Fast forward a couple years to when I went back to work, and now several years later I can't imagine leaving. When we visit family, driving back and seeing the "Welcome to Colorful Colorado!" sign makes me feel I'm at home again.

Even more, when I visit other areas in Colorado, coming home on US-24 I hit those rolling hills just east of Wilkerson Pass I know I'm home

Not really, but I miss some things. Like right now, I am missing the precipitation, and the good and vibrant restaurant culture.

You're gonna miss stuff, for sure, but you'll find new things you would never have known about if you hadn't come out here.

Have lived here since 1982 - if I had the money I would move back to NJ in 1982.

I've been in CO for almost 4 years now. I was born & raised and spent the first 27 years of my life in Boston. All of my family and friends are still there.

I would never consider moving back! I had a very good job offer to move back about two years ago but turned it down. They'll have to take me kicking and screaming from CO!

I miss my house, and what Long Island used to be.

Hopefully Colorado doesn't continue to get jacked up by the same ideologies and politics.

I do. I am currently back in MI and feel that this is where I want to be to raise my family. I love the CO weather, but I like my family more

I just moved here from NorCal 7 months ago and I don't miss it at all.
