I am somewhere between ambivalent and can't stand it on Little Rock. This town is so small, boring, backwards, and conservative it about drives me insane, but on the other side the natural beauty of the area is VERY nice and I have a great time when I get the opportunity to enjoy it.

I'm also somewhere between can't stand it and ambivalent. It's not terrible, but if I had the money and jobs weren't an issue, I would be outta here.

No. Didn't like it the first time I lived here. Detest it even more now.

Interestingly, when I announced my desire to leave Alaska to some friends they tried to sell me Sacramento as the best place on Earth. Of course, compared to Alaska, almost anywhere would be a vast improvement.

I like where I live, but it sure ain't no heaven on earth. Far from it lol.

I considered maybe moving to Dallas after I graduate or VA. Not sure though.

I get that the economy's bad right now, but I always kinda hate when people complain about where they live. If it sucks that bad... move.

If you can't move, try to make the best of it. (But you usually can move... if you really want to.)

I, by the way, like where I live, and can see good things about every place I've lived.

I agree. People CAN truly move if they WANT to. It takes effort and planning. It also takes time, but realistically, even if you own a house and have a family, you can make plans and preparations to move within two years or less.
