It’s been one week today since I made the 24-hour drive from Florida to Chicago. It was a really long drive but thankfully I was able to stop and see a few friends. Which really helped. Especially during a time like this. It’s true what they say, “.”
Anywho a few of you have asked me and I’m here today to answer. So why did I leave Florida?
There’s too much going on in Florida for me to stay there right now. First of all, it’s too hot. All the time. I know you’re probably thinking “yeah. Duh Jennica, it’s Florida.” But seriously, I’m a Michigan girl. I only like a change in my seasons. Also, it wasn’t really good for my hair and my skin. It was always dry and cracked. No matter what I did, the humidity didn’t agree with me.
Second, there wasn’t anything to do (not that there’s anything to do anywhere in the world at the moment) but you know what I’m saying. I was alone without my friends who are all up here and it was getting kind of miserable. I wasn’t just in Florida, I was in . On a small little island. And for my own sanity, I needed to get off of it. I’m a wanderer at heart.
And third, the state of Florida sucks right now. I said it before and I’ll say it again. Florida sucks. I’ve now been for two months going on three. It’s probably not coming. I think they’re just going to keep giving us the runaround until we get tired of filing for it. But I will never come.
So where am I now? I’m in .
I’ve never been happier to be hanging out in cooler weather. All my friends think I’m crazy, but living in 90-degree heat with 80% humidity will really make a girl miss where she came from. And who am I kidding, if I want to live in Scandinavia I have to be able to deal with cold weather. That’s just a given.
