10 Reasons You Should Move Far Far Away From Pennsylvania
Pondering moving far away from Pennsylvania? You’re certainly not alone. After all, we have so many reasons for getting out there and exploring other states that just might make the perfect home. Today, let’s take a tongue-in-cheek peek at 10 reasons that might compel us to move far, far, far away from PA.
1. Pennsylvanians are just so subdued and…
Can you handle how subdued and quiet Pennsylvanians are? If passionate people excite you, you probably want to find a new state to call home.
2. You’ll probably want to live in a state where the people are more creative and…
After all, we just stick with the mainstream instead of doing really wild things, like watching wiener dog races and outhouse races.
To be fair, it’s really
tough to be a daredevil in a place where we can’t really take off in a hot air balloon, go paragliding, or embark on a challenging hike. (Photo above of Hyner View State Park)
4. PA’s just so void of tradition and...
We really should focus a little more on tradition in PA, don’t you think? Maybe as we’re eating our pork dinner on New Year’s Day, watching the mushroom or Hershey kiss drop on New Year’s Eve, or wave our Terrible Towels, we can brainstorm some ideas together.
5. The food is just so
PA really doesn’t have much to offer food-wise. Unless, of course, you consider it’s the Snack Capital of the United States and scrapple, shoofly pie, and pierogis are some of our favorite foods.
6. We have nothing to do on Sunday afternoons in the fall and…
While the rest of the country watches football, we’re stuck here in PA, just twiddling our thumbs on Sunday afternoons.
7. Summer evenings during the summer.
Summers are just
so boring in PA. Wouldn’t it be nice to have baseball teams to cheer on and stadiums, where we can sink our teeth into juicy hot dogs as we nurse a cold drink?
8. We just can’t make up our minds…
Living in PA means making a lot of decisions. Hard decisions, even. How do you choose between Wawa and Sheetz? Just how can you decide who has
your your loyalty – the Phillies or the Pirates? The Steelers or the Eagles? The Flyers or the Pens? We really don't need that kind of stress.
9. Once you live here, you’ll never leave…
Yep. Some say we’re stuck here when we live here. But, truth be told? Pennsylvanians travel the world and the United States, but nothing can compare to our home in PA.
10. Homesickness is good for you…isn’t it?
Move far far away from Pennsylvania and expect vicious bouts of homesickness, especially when you see, eat, or experience something that reminds you of home. But, it’s okay, that homesickness will eventually grow weaker. It just might take years.
