I’ve lived in New Jersey my entire life. Yes, there have been stints on cruise ships, sublets in Manhattan, sit downs in faraway lands of Ohio, Florida, etc, and then all the glamorous tour destinations from Texas to Oklahoma to Arkansas to Pennsylvania. I’ve been all over the place. I liked it that way when I was younger. What stories I have about some of my dwelling spaces: tiles falling from the ceiling, food stealing, cockroaches aka water bugs, you name it! I will always call New Jersey home even if I’m considering leaving it someday. I do love it here. With the suburban atmosphere on this side of the river and the hustle and bustle on the other side as my backyard, I really get the best of both worlds.
