I'm from Nashville, TN and I moved to Jacksonville, FL in 2014 after I graduated high school. I came to Jacksonville because I wanted to change my environment. I found out is harder to find a job here than it is to find one in Nashville. The atmosphere and the temperature is tolerable, but I have to keep in mind the I spent 18 years in the mountains and now I'm living in the "Sun Shine State". On a scale 1-10 I rate Jacksonville a 5. In my Future I see me opening up a business in Jacksonville . This is the main reason I want to go to college and study business.

I've lived in the area for all of my life, and therefore, I feel 'used' to it. However, there is a multitude of glaring problems which plague us all. Crime has always been very high and there does not appear to be a reversal in the trend for the better coming anytime soon. Law enforcement patrolling the area is noticeably apathetic toward prioritizing safety. Job creation is moving in a positive direction, but wages and opportunity are rather sluggish. These factors have established sort of a pessimistic atmosphere and many residents feel cynical and trapped.
Jacksonville is a rather large yet wonderfully knit city. Not everybody is friendly but its certainly safe to say that the area has an immense amount of southern hospitality. As a person, I feel there is always room for improvement and that he city could always use a helping hand in staying beautiful and strong. If I had the choice to go abck in past and choose a different city I wouldn't want to experience any other life. a strong 8 out 10.
