New Jersey born and raised, but the South Jersey/Philadelphia experiment is still a learning experience for me. I've now been living in this region for about 5 years, however, I originally hail from about an hour and a half north on the Turnpike, and my family has its roots in Brooklyn, NY. Unsurprisingly, my alliances lie with NY teams (Mets and Jets), and I remain a passionate fan, despite how frustrating it can be to always be rooting for underdogs.
My family and friends are extremely important to me, and I prefer to surround myself with those who are close to me rather than spend time alone. That being said, moving into my own place for the first time has been a nice change of pace for me, thus far.
