    Like Brent, I associate 2 places with home.

    Leicester:
    Like: Big city, lots to do, lots of people my age
    Dislike: Lots of idiots

    Gloucester:
    Like: Chilled out atmosphere, good people, reasonably large city nearby
    Dislike: Less to do
    So you like the fact that there are a lot of people but dont like the fact that some of those people may be idiots? Idiots come with the territory of there being lots of people.

    Houston:
    Like: I was born and raised here so its the place I call home. Houston Texans, Rockets, Astros, Dynamo, and Aeros are all here so we have a lot of pro sports teams.

    Dislike: There are 6 million people here and none of them want on their reputation that they take public transportation so they all have to drive their own car. When they all try to get some place at the same time it tends to take a little while.

    New Mexico:
    Like: Besides the school there is nothing to like.

    Dislike: Elevation is 3000 ft and there are never clowds around so if you walk outside for more than 15 minutes without sunscreen then you are guaranteed a sunburn. The town is 1/3 college kids and 2/3 retirement homes. I have come to realize that the speed limit is actually 15mph under what the sign says and to this day it drives me crazy.

        Buffalo, NY

        Likes: It's home and they call it the city of good neighbors for a reason. If you like a healthy combination of small town ambience and city lifestyle, Buffalo is a fantastic place for that.

        Dislikes: Weather, maybe, but you get used to it.

        NY, NY

        Likes: So much to do

        Dislikes: People. Traffic. Jets. Yankees

          For some odd reason I enjoy my visits to Utah.

            Milwaukee, WI (Current kinda hometown and College)

            Love: Being just minutes from two professional teams (and yes the Bucks do count, some people don't). I may not be a Brewer fan, but Miller Park is a kick ass place to go see a baseball game, if I had money and more time, I'd prolly go to every one of their home game of theirs when school is in session. And everyone for the most part are very nice, and don't give me too much **** for being a Cardinal fan.

            Hate: Prolly all the buses, even though thats how I kinda get around.

            Winona, MN: Birthplace and Summer home

            Love: Ummmmmmm, this was hard. Well, its Minnesota, we have nice lakes here, a rivertown, nice bluffs. Also, we are only 2 hours away from the Cities, an hour and a half from water park capital of the world: Wisconsin Dells, an hour to Treasure Island (a casino), and 18 year olds can gamble in Minny. A hour from Rochester, MN and half hour from LaCrosse, WI, they have some nice places to go. And it is a cool place cuz it is a pretty good split of Packer and Viking fans.

            Dislike: There is not a whole lot to do in Winona, really kinda have to go elsewhere, or the movies.

            AND IN BOTH: I hate the weather in the winter. Too cold. Although I like the weather in spring, summer, and fall. Its really quite pleasent.

              I'd definitely live in Minnesota if the winters were not so horrible.

                Salinas, Ca (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salinas,_California)

                Love: Great mexican food, close to the ocean, never too hot and never too cold, just feels like home to me, ~5.5hrs to snow or LA

                Hate: Gangs and crime in some areas, lots of farming, not really a ton of stuff to do in town, we make a lot of lettuce (over 80% of the US lettuce and I hate lettuce)

                          Bloomington:

                          Love - The cornfields? I mean it is a pretty nice and quiet area, no violence and not much gang activity, great place to raise a family.

                          Hate - Boring, boring, boring. It's a college town but there is absolutely nothing to do around here.

                              Panama:
                              Love: You can do anything, any time, any moment. You can be 14 and go and buy alcohol at the store, or go to a night club, or get a prostitute.

                              Hate: Everyone knows everything. Its such a small city... its very hard to keep a secret or prevent anyone from knowing anything

                                they get smoked.
