The opposite list is here.

Stuff I prefer here ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ than at home:

  • Jujy Fruits
  • Milk Duds
  • DOTS
  • Ben & Jerry’s
  • Automatic Cars – I know they exist at home, but no one drives them. Everyone back home is a stick-shift snob. I was too. Screw that. Automatics are so much easier.
  • Basements
  • Central Air Conditioning
  • Diversity
  • Beautiful summers
  • Ability to handle snow storms – admittedly we get a lot of practice
  • Thanksgiving – Christmas without the hassle of pressies
  • Brunch
  • Snow Boots
  • Lemonade – it’s made with lemons (ish). Irish lemonade is lemon-flavored (ish) pop.
  • Healthcare – tough one here. Great health insurance = amazing care. No health insurance = shite care
  • Cost of living – most things are cheaper
  • July 4th ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐ŸŽ‡ – way more fun and wholesome than Paddy’s Day. Also nicer weather = BBQ
  • Big refrigerators
  • Watermelon- all the time
  • Hot sauce
  • Pizza options
  • Great public transport
  • Target
  • Walgreens – a pharmacy chain with stores on every corner means I can get my meds anywhere
  • Sports teams – go Cubs
  • Skyscrapers – amazing views
  • The skyline – there is one + it’s beautiful – shame about The Trump Tower (it is beautiful though)
  • Starbucks on every corner – great place to work (write)
  • Such a huge country. So much to see. Such different landscapes
  • Being allowed turn right on red lights
  • The Spanish language
  • Beaches. Americans don’t go to the beach when it’s freezing out, or eat sand-filled sandwiches while there. We have hot weather. That’s when we go.
