I've developed a "love hate" relationship with South Carolina, some things are slowly growing on me but other things aren't.
I hate....that I haven't really made any friends here. (one from work & maybe two Milispouse's on post)
I love.....the Historical / Victorian style homes.
I hate.....that you can be in a really nice area then all of a sudden it goes ghetto.
I love.....that there is more of a variety of stores vs. what we had in Hawaii.
I hate.....that people freaking just step out in the middle of the street to cross when there's no crosswalk.
I love.....the old historical feel of Five Point shopping area & what it has to offer.
I hate....the cold weather that comes along with living here.
I love....that I've found some awesome gym classes to attend on post.
I hate....that I'm the only one my age those goes to those classes.
I love....that things are so much cheaper here....amen to the lower gas prices.
I hate....that the time changes & it gets dark earlier now.
I love....the open forest feel & being able to be outside in it right by our house while the pups enjoy running through the trees.
I hate.....that there isn't alot to do right here in the Columbia area.
I love....that there's a shooting range on post so the hubbs can easily go shooting.
I hate.....standing out.
I love....being able to drive to another state at a moments notice if we wanted to.
I hate.....that people here can be so rude.
I love....how some can be really nice.
I hate.....the time difference between here and Hawaii it totally sucks.
I love....that I have a full time job now & that the school schedule follows the public school system.
I hate....that I don't work with any Milispouse (I really enjoyed that in Hawaii)
I love....that its close to home only about 6 miles from the house.
I hate....that its not on post, I got use to a 3 minute drive to work.
I love....that the hubbs and I are getting so much time together.
I hate....that he doesn't like the unit he is assigned to and there's not much we can do about it.
I love.....that there are running courses on post with mapped out routes for you.
I hate....that the beach is a hour & half away plus its not even that pretty :(
I love....that we are so close to NYC <3 .
I hate.....that because of the time difference my tv shows come on much later.
I love.....the beauty that is around the surrounding area.
I hate...being away from my Army Hawaii Family.
I love....our beautiful home & the memories we are making here in it.
I could go on and on about what I love & hate here in South Carolina but I will spare you the pain. I keep telling myself April 2014 April 2014 we can do this we can do this, we will PCS to a fabulous place after here!!!!!!!!!!
