I'll be graduating college in a couple years, and I'm wondering what its actually like to say goodbye to this state. I've done my fair share of bashing about Iowa, but I imagine its gonna be sad. I was born in Philly but my dad is from Nevada, IA and my mom is from Ames and we have lived in Mason City for 17 years. Any thoughts?
Well, I only went to college in Iowa for four years, but that was enough time to get to know the state decently well. I don't miss Iowa one bit except for things that most big colleges have anyway.
A lot of "sizable" areas of Iowa have low unemployment because there are a lot of small colleges spread throughout the state. The metro areas/cities with the lowest unemployments in the US are either heavy on government jobs (i.e. DC) or they have major universities there...or heavy on big research/medical institutions.
I always thought it would be cool to live in Colorado but I think that it would actually ruin the state for me. When you're around it all the time I don't think you appreciate it as much. The same can probably be said for Vegas.
My uncle moved out 40 years ago to loveland, co and told me it never gets old, haha.
I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.
Iowa is great in terms of raising kids, simple/quiet life. If you're young and don't have to stay for some reason, get out now, you can always go back. I've lived in Des Moines, Lansing, Chicago, Tampa and now Cleveland. I wouldn't go back to Iowa over any of them but Lansing.
Exactly. Really depends on who you are, though.
When you move out of state you'll notice a significant drop off in work ethic, and over a few years it will likely translate into you making a lot more money. Then you get promoted a few times into management and you can spend your mornings typing on Cyclone Fanatic.
I don't agree with the drop off in work ethic, but the rest is funny.
