I grew up in a tiny town in Central California. I wish I grew up in Merced, which is only 25 miles from my hometown, and it's considered a small city. But I still like it and wouldn't mind living there now. I like Central Cal. I've been in Oregon for 36 years now and still don't like it.

I grew up in Gary Indiana which is well
known for being one of the roughest communities
in the country. If I could have grown up
someplace else in the United States It
would be Washington DC because it offers
the best of both worlds city amenities and
the country's goverment in your backyard
meaning you can learn a lot.

I was born in a tiny town in No. California but grew up in Florida. Florida was fun as a kid and teenager (probably a little too fun) but I just never fit in. Honestly, I wish I could have stayed out West.
