Honestly, I think every writer gets a block when forced to write about themselves or where they’re from.
While Ohio is home, and of course has a place in my heart, I couldn’t be more excited to get the hell out of here! Mostly because if another person asks me if I know a lot of Amish people I’m going punch someone.
Ohio is kind of a weird state in the way that it contains a little bit of everything. Laid back like the west, yet slightly old-fashioned like the south, cold like the north, but super green like the east!

Besides its three major cities, Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati, Ohio mainly consists of cornfields and farms! A.k.a probably the easiest state to “pop a squat” and no one will ever know. (***I AM NOT ADVISING ANYONE TO DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL) And as much as I hate to admit I’m from the “country” it’s sadly true!
90% of people who are from Ohio never leave. Also, 90% of the people in the city aren’t even from Ohio and moved here for some type of employment opportunity. After all, when have you ever heard the excitement in the sentence “I’m moving to Ohio…”
Once on a plane from Ohio -> Arizona, the woman next to me was crying and said to me “I love it here, it’s so green”. Who wants that to be the adjective someone describes your home as? “Isn’t Ohio so great?” “YEAH, It’s green”….
Comparable to the most bipolar person you know. Two weeks ago it was 60 degrees, now there’s a foot of snow on the ground, and it’s also raining….? Making it nearly impossible to downsize your closet. Let me tell ya!
The Night Life
For some reason, drugs are notoriously bad in Ohio. However, alcohol is in no shortage and man, do we love to drink! (More on this topic later!)
Anyway, I could complain for hours. Nothing changes the unique kind of butterflies I get every time my plane lands in the big OH-IO.
See you soon…
