    I am sooo missing Philly right now.

    The FI and I just moved to my hometown of Miami in March and boy does it suck. He is living with his dad and I am living with my mom so that we can save some money and get on our feet. We both found jobs pretty quickly, but he works weekends now and I work weekdays 9-5. My job only has 2 other co-workers and they are both married so they don't hang out much. So, basically all i do is go to work and go home. This is coming from a life in Philly where I say my friends everyday (especially my BFF), knew most of the city, had neighborhood hangouts and could pretty much walk into any room and know at least one person (being a promoter and DJ was pretty good for popularity).
    Now, everyone says reach out to old friends, but to tell you the truth... I don't really have any. I was a huge nerd in High school, so when I got out I had very little motivation to K.I.T. with the bullies who taunted me to no end. I went out and made friends some place else. Now I am back, lonely and MISERABLE!! I have gained like 15 pounds in the 2 months because all I do is watch TV, plan the wedding and sleep. I talk to my girls in Philly every night, but they really can't come and visit me down here if they want to go to the wedding, so I just miss them....

    Where the hell do people make friends in this God forsaken city!!!

      miami It sounds like fun in the sun. Can you just have picnics and play on the beach I always feel like it's one of those towns that no one lives in and everyone visits. What kind of work do you do? Any other family (cousins) in the area?

        Cousins.. not really.

        I am a media buyer. Not really a field where there is much partying going on. Networking... Yeah, if I was in NYC. I am just soooooooo bored.
        This is a city that I loved to vist and hated living in. Why on earth did I agree to this?
        It isn't much different than me living in Philly and FI living in Toronto. We don't see each other much more anyways. The only difference is that I am miserable and lonely.

        Put it this way, When I left 10 years ago, I had NO INTENTION of ever looking back. Keeping up with people down here was NOT a priority. They represented old, sad no friends me. Philly represented new and COOL me. now I am back to just being littl old sad, no friends me.

          So sorry to read you are going through this tough time! Can you join any interest groups? Like do you like to paint or scrapbook or something? I bet in the long run it will be all worth the move so you can save the money. Everything happens for a reason! I have been trying to live by that saying so I will say it to you too!
