Quote from: Chocofreak13 on September 22, 2022, 11:41:43 PMthis is EXTREMELY late to the party, but parts of New England are decent, despite the cold. we have a fairly high cost of living compared to the rest of the country, but some of the smaller cities are doable, though our crime rate has gone up a smidge. but we're a fairly diverse population up here (especially Massachusetts, helps that it's the most populated), and overall lean liberal, which can help with adjusting since people tend to be a tiny bit more accepting. i have no experience with that, but my dad does (he immigrated from Europe in the 80's). someone in the south literally said after he said where he was from "That's wher all dem kangaroos er from, riiight?". he just kinda smiled and nodded.as indicated by that, i'm from the Northeast US, where the cost of living is high and my state's wages are low! historic houses, beautiful scenery, rising drug problem, lack of affordable housing....tbh i still love it here, despite itself. it's also nice that we don't have very much in the way of natural disasters here (blizzards, but otherwise the worst things in the region lately have been a drought due to climate change and an out-of-left-field tornado in Mass a few years ago). it can be a bit cold for people, though, so it's not for everyone. :0
