For me, there particularly isn’t too much difficulty choosing to live in the south over the north.
This is often seen as forever puzzling to members of our family.
They are all from the good white north just as I am. However, I chose to live in the land of the Heating as well as A/C heat pump right out of university. It’s been decades however I still get grief from family members over our option to live in the south. Their fight has mostly to do with local culture plus proximity to family. That is an fight that has plenty of merit. However, our fight is that I just couldn’t take the winter. My life growing up, I just dreaded the winter. I hated having to be cooped up in the Heating as well as A/C all winter. I didn’t much care for Winter outdoor sports so there particularly wasn’t much more to do than stay inside plus be warmed by the Heating as well as A/C heating system. Once I got a scholarship to a southern university, I jumped at the opening to leave all that Winter plus Heating as well as A/C heating behind me. I graduated from that southern university plus simply never left. And who can blame me? I live in an area where the sun shines all Winter plus the heat pump hardly even kicks on. That is the sort of Winter I’m interested in. The Summer is a scorcher however I have a good Heating as well as A/C heat pump to get me through that with relative ease. So to me, choosing this sort of life over what I grew up with is not a difficult option at all. And if our family were able to live where I do, they might see it the same way.
