will turn your insides into your outsides
If I had to sum up my hometown in one word, it would be: Boring.Random question of the day:
What's your hometown like?
But to expound on that, it's hot for the majority of the year. Summer starts early and ends late. Sometimes our winters arent even all that cold. You like sand? Cause we got lots of it! And not the fun, beach kind, either. Entertainment? What's that? Unless eating at a restaurant and /or drinking at a bar is your mainstay of entertainment, we dont have a lot else to do. And even within those margins, it's STILL a lot of the same. We have like four malls, though two of them arent really indoor malls are are just a big ass shopping district under the nomenclature of being a mall. Which sucks because once again, IT'S HOT OUTSIDE! Despite all these shopping hubs, the stores are pretty boring. If you have a style that is anything but boring and trendy, forget about it. Same monogamous style across the board. We have like maybe 5 comic book stores throughout the whole city. I know, I've been to them all while trying to find my brand of comics locally. No dice here. Speaking of dice. We have literally TWO, that's right TWO gaming stores! One of which is mostly just pokemon and magic the gathering cards. So when it came to my old hobby of miniature painting, I had one outlet. We occasionally try to mimic cool events like a comic-con, like bigger and better cities fo. But out rendition is like the dollar tree version of said event. It's always very underproduced and everyone here is a cheap-ass so no one wants to spend money, so as a result no one really comes here with anything worth buying (or they stop coming altogether). The only side of town that has anything "nice" is the West Side, cause that's where all the ritch people live. But it's very yuppy, and reeks of country club and pretentiousness.
Oh, and I forgot to mention our notoriously low wages. While other places are commonly starting out at AT LEAST $8.50 for minimum pay, my city seems loves to start everyone off at the state minimum of $7.50 an hour. I've been working since I was 16. I'm now 38. And no matter where I go when i have to start at a new job, it's always the same shit. Minimum fucking wage. And it isn't just me, a whole lotta ppl I know have to deal with the same thing.
I fucking hate it here. I've tried to leave on multiple occasions, but haven't been able to manage it. Always have. I guess the one good thing about my hometown is that because it's so boring, it's also a very safe place live. meh.
