I was there in 2006 for nations in speech and debate! I went for a run and I saw this lake and I wondered if I would see live alligators. Let's just say the university has about 1,000 mascots! Named gators for a reason.


I live in Las Vegas now and 1 awesome thing is..... It's LAS VEGAS! But seriously Las Vegas is close to everything...camping and national parks, California, crazy party life if you want (the strip feels like a city inside a city) and wild mustang! By far the coolest!

London. I think that's self explanatory.


What if I'm there for a short time and I can only visit/do one thing? There are so many awesome things in London that I've read about on the internet. I wouldn't know where to start.

I live in small town USA.....Burkburnett, Texas. The population is a little under 11,000 people. The town was known as "Boomtown USA" back during the oil boom because of all the oil derricks/pumps. So, you can see tons of oil pumps in and out of town.



I also live 10 miles north of Wichita Falls.....they have a water fall that was restored in 1987.



Eerie thing about these falls is that above the falls is a cemetery. o.0

The storm chaser guy from the weather channel, Jim Cantore, lived here and his brother owns and operates a pizza shop 5 minutes from my apartment.

That's a fact I just learned today. Lol Ya this part of nh is boring.

I live in upstate (Plattsburgh) NY. Winters are my favorite here and I have the luxury of skiing at Whiteface mountain. Which they claim to have the highest vertical drop on the east coast, or something along those lines.

Detroit, Michigan, USA. I think one of the semi-hidden gems in the city is the Heidelberg Project. They've dealt with some arsonist destroying houses/art installations over the last year which is really unfortunate; welcome to Detroit, I guess?

We are home to one of only seven Pratt and Whitney manufacturing plants in the US. With a population of under 5k, I'd consider that just about the only interesting thing.

I don't think I've ever lived in a place that had a population of under 5k.

I live in Hawaii, so just about anything you see on TV about here being paradise and beaches and sunshine/rainbows is actually kinda true. Aside from it being perfect weather all the time. It rains... a lot. Which is perfect weather to me, personally.

And I see Dog the Bounty Hunter around the town every so often. Other than the beaches, volcanoes, sightseeing and the like, it's pretty boring and dead.

That was according to the 2000 census. I think we're actually around 8k now! :D

Long Island, New York!
Great thing is it's the suburban island where an hour long train ride takes you to the city that never sleeps!

I honestly thought that was just a fun witty saying until I went to visit NY. I was there for a total of 5 days and I think I slept around 2-4 hours a night. It was a lot of fun though!
