Why wouldn't we leave. I moved to ohio 4 years ago because my parents had moved her before then for a job. I decided to give it a try having never been here before. The first couple months, I began college. I am now a senior in college and cannot wait until I graduate to get the heck out of this P.O.S. state. It's a cultureless dump with no spectacular traits, sitting on an area of the Erie lake that's polluted the most...and no one here can drive. Everyone that lives here has only been to the OBX and thinks that that must be the best place on earth because they all have OBX stickers and never dare venture anywhere else on their yearly summer vacation. It's just a flat depressing place to be. You have not lived if you have only lived in Ohio and traveled to the OBX. People are starting to realize that while they are young and in college and are taking the opportunity to escape once they graduate...GOOD FOR THEM!!!
