Even if you live close to the Alabama or Georgia line the culture is different, and shockingly even more deranged.

Once you see that sunshine state sign you’re in some sort of weirdness. People here do say they’re going to Florida when they’re heading farther south though so I know what you mean. But I also know Florida is weird and ****ed every inch of it.
right I've never lived in Jacksonville so I'm just talking **** but I've been there and to me it's a different state.

We've gotten side tracked anyway my only point is it's definitely easier to live here than down there. Transport is only 1 variable. I don't have hard data either but anecdotally I meet tons of transplants here from up north or other states and most of them say the same thing. Cost of living is driving people here. There's no other reason to live here other than maybe the weather.

not compared to not making enough money to live on even if you did have transportation

Like I said I'm going on experience and anecdotes... But the south seems to be growing and getting tons of transplants from other states as opposed to vice versa.. So that clearly outlines the trend. People are moving where it's affordable and they can more easily have a comfortable standard of living.

You could see the same sort of thing in south Florida back in the 80s and 90s. But as it grew, housing prices went up and the cost of living with it. Until eventually it became costly to live there and growth slowed and now you even see people leaving. The same thing will happen here eventually. But right now it's still in the growth spurt stage.

Box factory is eating my life away

Gotta work 12 hours tomorrow. After 5 days of regular 8 hour shifts. And apparently this is the slow season. In the summer they work 6 days of 12 hr shifts. 72 hours. **** that. Imma milk this pay for as long as I can. The pay is decent. Imma milk it till I can't manage or till I find another job. But I'm starting to remember what real work is. **** real work. **** I miss taking a dog for a walk while listening to podcasts.

Might start growing mushrooms again or something. I dunno how to invest. But I need to put my money to work.

It’s maddening. It’s a toss up between suicide and six 12 hour days a week. It will never be comprehensible to me how people can possibly find this reasonable or a life worth living. Even if it paid a $1000 an hour what good would the money be (assuming you couldn’t just quit - you know what I mean). I’d definitely risk the shrooms because so what if you get caught. That’s not even a life to lose. Sorry for being so negative but I just don’t get how they get away with basically saying here’s how it is, you don’t get to have a life, without people responding with violence. I just really don’t get it. I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s no less ridiculous than them saying we need everyone to get castrated.

I also recommend simply working 40 hours or maybe 50 if you want some OT and just going home and see if they fire you. Like what’s the difference if they do?

If you’re good at growing shrooms in jars - go for it. Maybe I could help you with distribution up here.

You’re up in NC now? Mescaline would have a way bigger novelty on this side of the country.

I definitely need distribution. That's the main thing I need

And I hear you but at the same time I was making nothing at the dog pound and getting nowhere. With this job I'll have my license and a car in no time. I don't plan on still being here come summer... But if I was... **** I don't even know how much that is exactly but your talking like maybe a grand a week.

It's low key af. Damn near impossible to detect.

Mushrooms are a hard enough market to crack... Wouldn't know where the **** to find people to buy mescaline.

Would grow weed but between the smell and the light bill that **** is hot as ****
