I finally got my login nonsense straightened out and I'm looking forward to the new site and forums. Everything looks excellent.

I knew there was at least one other Tallahassee Lakers fan floating around besides me and my peeps.

I like the city, but I'm ready to leave. My girlfriend has lived here almost her whole life. When she finishes her Master's degree, we'll probably move back to the Orlando area, where my family is.

She hates the cold, so I doubt I'll ever convince her to move back to my home state of Jersey.

I've been here for a year. Not a huge fan of it (way pricey compared to where I've lived and way too hot), but I can handle it till I finish my PhD. I'm in Philosophy. What program is your GF in? Interestingly enough, I'm from your neck of the woods. I grew up near Allentown, PA.

The heat here is ridiculous. Almost no breeze. We recently were named the 3rd sweatiest city in the country. And it gets damn cold for a Florida city.

My girlfriend is studying clinical social work. I have my BA in Creative Writing.

Tri-state area, represent!

Nice, man. My younger brother just finished his MA work in Social Work and my father in law has been a licensed social worker in TX for a decade or two.

I don't mind the cold here. I do mind the energy bills. I have dogs so I have to keep the temp reasonable even when I'm not in the house.

Maybe we'll run into one another at some point when the Lakers are crushing someone. I sometimes go to Buffalo Wild Wings and watch games while I do homework.

Yeah, her family is filled with social workers too (her Dad was one and currently works a desk job at a branch of DCF - one of the non-screwed-up parts, while her stepdad just retired as the chief of adult mental health in the state). I've heard Texas is one of the better places for Social workers to go.

Energy bills have been brutal.

I'm sure we'll run into each other at BW3s eventually. I rather like that place, but I'm usually at home when the games are on national TV or over my friend's place (our game-watching routine sometimes involves illicit substances). We try to hit a sports bar every now and then, plus I've been meaning to check out more games at bars instead of relying on illegal web feeds. I'd love to get into it with other team's fans.
