I LOVE New Jersey, but it does kind of suck that I am a college student who doesn't have a car only because I can't afford the crazy insurance rates in this state.

My parents talk about moving to another state all the time and I will follow them if they do. Luckily, my future line of work pays pretty much the same wherever I go.

Places that interest me as possible future homes are:
Atlanta Metro Area
Austin Metro Area
Chicago Metro Area
Denver Metro Area

cant leave NJ lol.

I moved to Denver, CO with my best friend of many years. Lived there a year. Problem was I missed the fast paced side of this area. I found myself getting major road rage because people in in Denver area would drive SLOW.

After job issues I moved again from NJ to Charlotte, NC. Loved the cost of living thigns being cheaper, a lot of transplants also from the tri state area. Decided after 6 months it was a good place to be and bought a house. HOWEVER I still visited NJ every 1-2 months to get my jersey fix of SUBS, SANDWICHES, chinese/japanese food(good sushi), kosher food which in charlotte was on the opposite side of town. Then boom my company shuts down and BACK in NJ again trying to short sale my house.(job market in charlotte is even worse than here because of wachovia mess)

Somehow i end up back here. NJ as much as people give it a bad rep is home.
