Holy shit. For whatever reason a lot of people I'm friends with (including three former girlfriends) are from Jacksonville, like there was some sort of Diaspora from Jacksonville to Portland, Oregon. Seems like the weirdest choice, even more than going some place snowy and colder (but sunny, like Wisconsin.) It's just cloudy and rainy all the time here, which I'm fine with, but I also grew up with it.
Like, I've only been to Florida twice (once as a kid and again in 2007) the first time in Orlando and the second time in Ft. Lauderdale for the Superbowl (my ex randomly won tickets,) and with the stories we heard we were prepared for the worst. First time I didn't care. Nickelodeon Studios was the shit! Sure, there were the Spring Breakers sorts and plenty of elderly people, but the locals and service industry workers were really cool just like anywhere else, and the old people and breakers didn't look at us like we had dicks hanging off of our heads either. But I remember thinking that I couldn't do with that much sunshine all year round, because I was used to the clouds and the rain growing up. Even when I was in Wisconsin it got to me, and I'd stay out of the sun as much as possible. Not everyone in the Pacific Northwest is a vampire or anything, but you'd think there'd be a mutual feeling of "something doesn't feel right here." Who knows?

PEOPLE WHO LOVE TO RUN.
I'd go and visit my grandparents-in-law in this small Wisconsin town and that was the billboard upon approaching the town.. just a person on a jog or on a bike.. "IT'S ALL HAPPENING HERE IN MANOTOWOC!" Damn straight it is.

According to this video the whole town's an Olive Garden.
