Yeah, thank goodness for my hair straightener. I'd hate to see my hair in humidity like that. Surely it's not as bad in northern Florida? Oh well. I can't even afford to move to KC. No way I could move down here.

I haven't spent much time in Florida, but the times I've been there have always been pleasant. If I was to leave Colorado, Florida would be one of the leading contenders. My biggest concern would be hurricanes and bugs, but I'd rather face those than the intense boredom and blah of a lot of other places.

I can narrow it down to Northern Florida. The interest first started when I went to Tallahassee about five years ago. I liked Orlando. I love the ocean, but I don't think I could live next to it (kinda loud). The drive to Jacksonville was beautiful. I guess I'll just have to save up and visit more to determine exactly where I might love more.

Santa Barbara is the perfect weather year around. I was there at the end of July and first of August a few years back. 75 during the day, 50s at night, WONDERFUL. Got in the plane in KC to 106 with humidity out the ass, MISERABLE.

Florida's a nice place to visit for a week in the winter, when it sucks up north. That's about it. I lived in Tampa for two years. They had two seasons: 9 months of hot, and 3 months of really fucking hot. The weather was the same every day: mostly sunny, hot, humid, with an afternoon downpour. It got so fucking boring I'd cheer when a cloud blocked out the sun. And Florida is so flat that Space Mountain is the third-tallest (not a joke). I used to go out of my way to find a road that curved. The drivers are batshit crazy because they're the bad drivers from Boston and New York who then moved south when they got senile. The bugs are so big you could saddle them. The infrastructure is pushed to the breaking point for electricity and water, there's nothing but ugly identical strip malls (and pawn shops and porno movie houses), go a half-mile in from the coast and there's nothing but poor black people and orange trees, go south and there's nothing but Cubans and rich assholes, there are wrinkled Canadians everywhere clogging up the restaurants and roads in the winter... The whole state is a rainforest swamp that will go under as soon as the water levels rise. It has a few decent points (Disney, Key West, Cape Canaveral, the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Pete) but frankly I'd rather live in any other state.

I can't believe that sausage-sucker actually had the balls to say anything, considering he's the biggest postwhore on the Internet. What's he got now, 125,000 posts? Most of them chronicling his lame attempts to get laid, or bashing women, or talking about Star Wars? He needs to be throat-gagged with a 12-inch dirty homeless guy's schlong. What a set of fucking balls. Forget about carpetbombing with neg rep: he deserves to be shit-bukakked.

I actually feel bad about this, but I'm kind of irrationally anti-loyal to Missouri. Growing up, one of my big goals was to break out on my own, and leaving Missouri was a big part of that. I would view moving back as a failure, falling back into the gravity well. Heck, even visiting there actually depresses me a little. And that's not really fair. Missouri treated me well and I'm from a beautiful part of the state.

Put me in with the people who love KC but probably won't live there again. It's my home and where I grew up, but after spending time in bigger places you start to see there isn't a lot there. It is like any kind of long distance travel opening up your perspectives on the world. It's hard to get unless you have been away and lived other places. I also used to feel like I was loyal and wouldn't want to live anywhere else, and it's a generally good place for sure. S experience changes you.

Florida's a nice place to visit for a week in the winter, when it sucks up north. That's about it. I lived in Tampa for two years. They had two seasons: 9 months of hot, and 3 months of really fucking hot. The weather was the same every day: mostly sunny, hot, humid, with an afternoon downpour. It got so fucking boring I'd cheer when a cloud blocked out the sun. And Florida is so flat that Space Mountain is the third-tallest (not a joke). I used to go out of my way to find a road that curved. The drivers are batshit crazy because they're the bad drivers from Boston and New York who then moved south when they got senile. The bugs are so big you could saddle them. The infrastructure is pushed to the breaking point for electricity and water, there's nothing but ugly identical strip malls (and pawn shops and porno movie houses), go a half-mile in from the coast and there's nothing but poor black people and orange trees, go south and there's nothing but Cubans and rich assholes, there are wrinkled Canadians everywhere clogging up the restaurants and roads in the winter... The whole state is a rainforest swamp that will go under as soon as the water levels rise. It has a few decent points (Disney, Key West, Cape Canaveral, the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Pete) but frankly I'd rather live in any other state.

Florida...flat, yes, bad drivers, yes, ugly strip malls, yes, Canadians, yes. But I love the 6 months of awesome weather and AC, pools and beaches make up for the slightly hotter that Kansas summers. The average Temp in Sarasota is 88 degrees in August. What is KC's average in August? 98?

Not one mention of great sea food, almost great Amish food, Siesta Key, St, Armonds circle, Motes aquarium, Ringling Museum, spring training games....

Oh, and the whold "rainforest swamp" thing.....tends to create awesome wild life.

Just like everything in life.... pluses and minuses....

Uh, no. LMAO

I lived in Atlanta from February - June a couple of years ago... by the end of March/beginning of April, the temps were great (50-60 in the mornings, ~70 in the afternoon), but IMO the humidity ruined it. Fifty degrees outside, and I'd feel like I needed another shower after a 10 minute walk to work. And as far as AC, they didn't turn it on until the beginning of June, which really sucked (especially on the weekends, when they didn't even have the air circulating). The same thing happened when I was in Orlando several years ago around Spring Break... the temps were great, in the 80s, but the humidity ruined it. I was in Orlando last Halloween and around Christmas one year, and yeah, it's great.

People might say weather in the Midwest is the worst of everything, and in KC you can certainly get the worst of winter and summer... but it's not even close to everyday. The vast majority of winter days are not 0 degrees/snowing and the vast majority of summer days aren't 95+ with 400% humidity. Once the temps and humidity start to rise in Florida, there's no break from it for 6+ months.

A few things about my trip that I really enjoyed (besides Harry Potter's Wizarding World);

1. People. I talked with people from all over the country. My favorite was a couple that I talked to for about an hour waiting for a shuttle from US to the hotel. They were from Nova Scotia. Very nice people.

Also falling under the category of people would be all of the languages I heard while I was there. Orlando was a true melting pot. Standing in a few of the crowded shops, it was pretty cool to listen to all of the different languages at once.

2. Scenery. Yes, I enjoyed the view from a 10th floor hotel room in Orlando, and definitely hard to top the oceanfront hotel room at Daytona Beach, but my favorite was probably the drive to and from Jacksonville along I-95. I stopped to get gas in St. Augustine. I wish I would have had a bit more time to spend there.

I think that's it, overall. I loved everything, but those two really put this vacation far above any other I've ever gone on. I would love to be able to go back to explore more of the cities along I-95.

Your credit's just as shot in Missouri as it is in Florida. And you don't have a job in Missouri just like you don't have a job in Florida (unless I missed something on that tryout you had). So what's the difference? A two-day drive? With the potential payoff of living in a place that you've fallen in love with?

We all have our own priorities and values, but I can say that I've never felt better than the day that I drove a Ryder truck across the Missouri state line and left everything behind to start a new life. It's very cleansing; almost like being reborn, but on your own terms this time.

Nice thing for us is that we have good friends that moved down there from here about 12 years ago so we always have a place to stay and tour guides. :) They live in Lakeland (central Fl.) and that makes it nice to be a couple hours or so drive from just about anywhere we want to go down there.

Wife and I went to Key West with them a couple springs ago. Flew in to Tampa and drove the 7 hours down there. That was the best vacation ever.

We are heading back down to Florida in a couple weeks to visit. Can't wait to see that new Harry Potter ride. Last I remember the Spider Man one was the bomb.

Not done with school until July. Not sure I have the means. How would I go about it? Find a job, then move out there? Move out there with no job in hopes of finding one and affording a place on my own until I do? How do I get a place right now? I have no income, and my credit is shot. I really, really would love to, but my logical side can't see the logistics in doing so.

If you are going to do it the time is now. My plan was to graduate college and then move to Florida because I love it too. Right after I graduated I met a girl and here I am still in MO.

Leave now before you are stuck here forever.

I'm sure there's plenty of places where people are looking for roommates until you get on your feet. You're own room and a shared kitchen/bathroom could run as low as $300 a month depending on the situation. Unless you know someone down there that's a very viable option plus you may make a couple friends and network in the process.

Just remember, the first day you move in you have to kick the biggest roommates ass to establish yourself as alpha roomie.

I could hook you up with my friend who just moved down to FL. I'm sure he'd love to hang out. Plus, he's a dietician. Very strong.

Its hard to find work out of state like that. Plus, you need a lump of cash to move with.

If you can't do it now....then start planning for it when you're done with college.

You seem to be making some kind of subliminal suggestion within this thread. But I can't put my finger on it.

Florida's great this time of year, try it in July when it's 99 degrees with 400% humidity

This!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We went to Disney at the end of June in 07. Holy fuck it was hot! Ride a water ride early in the day and you'd stay wet all day. On a side note, my Wife and I are headed there this weekend. Hope the weather's nice.

You only get one shot at life. this ain't no dress rehearsal.

At 18, I left Springfield, Mo. without a prospective job, without even a high school degree, no skills and $325.00 in my pocket. People told me I was a fool. Ended up working on the oil rigs traveling around all over the South and Jamica, Mexico the bahammas etc for about 8 years until an oil rig blew out I was suppose to be on.

I has no english skills but I thought I could make it as a writer. Applied and educated myself and made enough money as a writer to travel the world for 2 years.

I was living the totally suburban lifestyle. Working as a Respiratory Therapist. Was saving lifes daily. Was as highly paid as anyone in the field but started to think about paying for college and how to get money for retirement. I would need a better paying career. I worked as an RT during the day. Went to school after work until 10:00 pm. Stayed up till 2:00 am working on computer stuff. Woke up at 6:00 am and started it all over again. For 2 long azz years.

The plan worked. Tripled my salary. Had the highest paying job I've ever had. The company loved me, I loved the job. But, we didn't want to live in suburbia after our son graduated high school. So, I left my comfy exsistence, chose to spend a year away from my wife and son to take a leap of faith that I could do this more advanced job in Florida, that they would like me. Gambled big time financially. So far, it looks like its all going to work out.

My whole life I've never taken a dime of grant or federal money. No help for school from my family or any state or city funds. So I don't want to hear that BS "I have no money so I can't change my life" argument.

The lesson is that you can change your life without help from others if you believe in yourself and are willing to bust your ass to achieve your dream.

Grab that brass ring Luv, live the life you want!

I will stay in the mountain west. Mountains and the crisp winter suits me. Never been much of a beach person. Closest thing to a beach I will go to is Seattle.

I'm not necessarily a "beach person" either. I love visiting Daytona Beach, but I wouldn't want to live there. Whatever city I choose, I'd want it to be landlocked. I can always drive a while to the beach if I wanted. I don't know what it is, I just love the atmosphere down there, as I'm sure you do yours. I also hate winter.

Well, done. Your balls are much bigger than mine. :thumb:It's about believing in yourself, not some kind of macho bravado.

I questioned every one of those moves. What the hell was I thinking, am I a idiot etc. Every single one of them could blow up in my face. The current one still could. But, no risk, no reward.

You look at it objectively, rationally. Can I achieve my goal? Not have every single item figured out, but if I work hard, apply myself will I be in a position to pull it off? If the anwer is yes and its your dream? Follow that dream with no regrets.
