do I hear a sense of sarcasm to that *hate* about hawaii.
No. I was very serious. I HATED living there. It was hot and humid ALL the time... no seasons at all, so it got incredibly boring and monotonous. It was a PITB to get anything shipped there (and we are online shoppers) and being an island in the middle of nowhere, it would get incredibly isolating and lonely. :-/
I'm so glad to finally be home. We may not have major seasonal changes here being in the desert... but there are at least SEASONS. There's an actual reason to wear socks now, lol.
LOL...I guess visiting is MUCH different then living there I guess. I loved Hawaii when I was there - for two weeks.
Kansas City, KS for me, BTW.
Yes, it's one of those places that are better to visit instead of living there. Most people I knew who lived there also said they hated it.
When we found out we were getting stationed in Hawaii, we were SUPER thrilled, of course. And loved the first 2 weeks (we were living in a hotel at the time until we could find an apartment). I remember saying "Is it possible that you could get stationed here longer than 3 years? I want to live here forever!" ... then those two weeks were up, and we were ready to go home, lol. I know a couple people who loved living in Hawaii... but most either disliked it or hated it. We definitely hated it. :-/ Plus, there is unfortunately a LOT of racism there. So many people who had kids in school said that their kids would get beat up ALL the time simply because they were "mainlanders". I've also been treated poorly on occasion by some of the locals because I'm a "mainlander". They're fine if you're just a tourist... because then you're giving them money, lol... but if you're a mainlander who moves there, so many of the locals dislike you. :-/ It's very unfortunate.
