I like ribs, I like country singers, I love God, I'm a firebreathing supporter of the Republican Party, I love it below the Mason Dixon Line.

Because that's where it's at
Are you serious?.....

I was born and raised in The Bronx and lived there till I was 25.
I now live in a semi rural area of Florida and would never move back.
For the record, I am not at all religious and hate country music but this has never been an issue down here.

I think most people have fond memories of where they lived as young children.
I think too at your age it's normal to be bored with the area you've spent most of your life and have the urge to go somewhere different.
So I think for you to want to go back to the place of your childhood is a pretty strong pull for you.

But... living in NJ is not going to be like spending your vacations there. It's one thing to Know about the cold, and another to have to get up every morning and put on six layers of clothing to stay warm.
Having said that I think that if you do a lot of research so that you have a good idea of what to expect as far as living there year round, then do it. You're bored and looking for a new experience, you might as well make it someplace that holds an attraction for you.

FWIW I'm a Michigan gal that moved to the deep south, and then back up to TN. I will always miss the place I grew up but I don't think I will ever live there again as I have become too accustomed to southern weather and southern ways.

Well, yes it's an exaggeration, the point being that knowing about something is not the same as living it.
I didn't think an average summer temp of 80-85 degrees sounded so bad either, until I got to Florida and got smacked in the face with humidity like I had never experienced before.

Ok cool. I agree with this.

Just like all parts of the "North" aren't the same, all parts of the "South" are not the same. You shouldn't need to be told this.

I grew up in SC and I wouldn't particularly want to live in middle TN. Or most parts of TN, for that matter.

I mean, could I judge NJ by my experiences in Ohio?
