    I hate this place. I absolutely hate it. There is no redeemable quality about it. The school districts are disgustingly bad at doing their jobs, the people are grating - there's nothing to like. Sure, maybe downtown is nice once in a while. But like hell you're going to find cerebral activity in your day to day life.

    There's crime. Like, not much crime, compared to other cities. But still enough to be seen around every month locally. It's great, if you want some stories. Kids bringing guns to class, police shootouts - we have it all.

    I guess the only good part is how cheap it is. I could actually work and make a profit on my life as a whole, staying here. Which is utterly miserable. I don't want to stay here. Being born in here, though, has sucked me in like a black hole. You get used to this life. It's dreary.

    The weather goes to boiling and then all the way down to negative ten. If you like summer, winter will push you to your limits. Have fun with your car getting stuck in snow due to your obligation to go to work. If you like winter, I hope you like having your skin boiled off. If you like spring or fall, good luck. There's no moderation here.

    Basically, what I'm saying is, please don't go here. Escape. Don't end up like me.

    By the way, the artistic score is only for downtown. And by that, I mean the pretentious hipster minority downtown. It's amazing that they're one of the most tolerable cliques here.
