Hi- I have been living in New Jersey for nearly 11 years now-yeah, thats alot. I am going to give you everything, because i believe you should really be informed of what this place is about. Before i do so, i think you should know something about me. My life/family is interesting, we travel out alot, ive been to almost every state in the country, and many countries too. I have seen the world alot, more than most average people my age. Not to brag or anything, but its true. Ive been to Asia, Europe, etc.
Now New Jersey as a PLACE doesnt have much to offer. My parents always say that they think the "quality of life" has decreased greatly since they moved to New Jersey. So yes, New Jerseyians are sort of missing out on life. It is true. a good mall is basically out of state (from where i live..which is the central). On top of that, NOTHING is within walking distance. There is nothing to do in New Jersey, except maybe go to Six Flags in the summer, which is not to mention i think the best in America. Thats all we have honestly.
But this is not what really BUGS me about New Jersey. What really truely BUGS me are the people here. A lot of the people havent been anywhere out of state, which means the only thing theyve seen in their life is the garbage that New Jersey has to offer. On top of that, people are really rude. New Jersey is the most "in da hood" state ever! We got Newark, Camden, Jersey City...ect.
I am currently in High School, so i will give you a few examples of Jersey kids IN SCHOOL.
The people in my school really deserve to have a movie. If i wrote a book about them it would probably be a bestseller. You CANNOT find people like this anywhere else. They are very stupid, rude, and immature. They fight over bottle caps, gum, and curse at teachers. And what do the Jersey teachers do? They dont do anything and say "Oh, thats not very nice of you!"
For the most part they actually ENJOY the nonsense. They find it very entertaining...well who wouldnt?
On top of that they act really weird and thats cuz most of them are REALLY missing out on life. You will hear stupid dumbass comments like "that house is REALLY BLUE!!" and people will talk about it for quite a while.
Lunch periods in Jersey school goes like this:
girl: OH MY GOD do you like kuwala bears?
girl 2: OMG YES!!
they talk about it for the longest time.
Random people in lunchrooms make alot of noise, throw milk on the floor and at people, and scream random shit like "BAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!" at random people.
You would think with all the teachers there for "supervision" things would change. Sadly, they havnt. This also represents greatly the politics of New Jersey itself.
This just comes to show the quality of the people that linger in this place. People also have NOOO MANNERS. You'll be walking, and a group of kids who THINK they are ghetto will "accidentally" bump into you becuase they have no presence of space and then instead of saying sorry, they will BURST OUT laughing and continue for 5 minutes. The sadness continues unfortunately...
People dont know how to behave, and are racist as HELL. On a bus there will be one mexican guy, and he will start yelling at the driver for no reason at all. The driver (in this scenario is asian..this is a real experience btw) and he will make ome SMALL driving mistake. So the mexican dude will be screaming "FUCK YOUUU!!! YOU CANT DRIVE!!!! CHING CHANG CHONG go back to china!!!" and will continue on. this is a school bus btw...
The point is people have no respect for one another in New Jersey, and talk REALLY FAST u cant understand a SHIT of what they are saying. it is usually about nonsense...
TO SUM UP: New Jersey has TERRIBLE people, its really ghetto in major cities but has a bunch of fakes in the suburbs, and you will seriously miss out on life. NO JOKE.
* My cousin came here for ONE DAY, met the people, and immediately said she would kill herself if she lived here.
** These are all based on PERSONAL experiences- so maybe North Jersey is a bit different!
New Jersey Conversations
Annoying Jersey Girl: OMG!! the ipod is the GREATEST invention in the world!!!
Outsider whispers to another Outsider: Wow, people here are sooo weird! I hate them!
Annoying Jersey Girl: OH MY GOD IS THAT AN OUTSIDER?? LET ME GO OVER AND CONTAMINATE THEM WITH MY WEIRDNESS!!
Outsiders: LETS GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!!!
NJ is summed up in this quote.
"I am from NJ. I curse... a lot. I say "yo", and I say it often. I never had school on Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur. I sure as hell don't pump my own gas. I know what real pizza tastes like, and I know that a bagel is much more than a fuckin' roll with a hole in the middle. I judge people by what exit they get off the parkway. I can navigate a circle--with attitude. All good nights must end at a diner--preferably with cheese fries. It's a sub, not a hoagie or, worse yet, a hero, and I wash it down with soda, not pop. Two words... "mother fucker." I don't go to the beach, I go down the shore. And boardwalk brawls are just a part of the atmosphere. Yes, I drink cawfee. I know that 65mph really means 80. I've always lived within 10 minutes of a mall. When someone cuts me off, they get the horn AND the finger. And they expect it. I am from New Jersey, and damn proud of it."
The writers of Harold and Kumar go to White Castle were from Randolph, a stereotypical suburban New Jersey town.
home of joe budden, bruce springsteen, jay and silent bob, bon jovi and MAD other people.
aint nobody in jersey says "joisy"...who the hell made that up?
its the only state that drops the "new" in its name.
we got the best damned accent ever.
everybody that dont like jerseys only mad cuz they cant afford it.
Us Jersey Girls keep it real.
The sickest state that I have ever been in. Hot girls, hot cars, hot beaches! What more can you ask for?
New Jersey is KILLER!
The realest place in the world.
I'm from Jersey. I keep it real.
The best state in the nation, where everything is within walking distance, people are friendly and know how to drive, whilst tourists claim that we drive like "maniacs" because they just don't know any better. Home of several national parks and one of the wealthiest counties in the nation, and one of the most respected ivy league schools as well. Many criticize New Jersey because we love our state so much, and they're jealous that ours is one of the most educated and prosperous in the nation. New Jersey is a wonderful place to live with many attractions that are overlooked and the state as a whole is completely underestimated.
Fuckhead: Oh you're from JOISEY,heh heh he he hehehehe, what exit?!?!?!?!
Jerseyian: You're a sad sad person....
east coast state, discriminated against by those who have been only as far as the outskirts of new york city. while new jersey has its fair share of cities, grime, and crime, a large portion consists of expansive suburbs, beautiful land, and farms.
brick, new jersey: second safest town in the nation.
home to bon jovi, bruce springsteen, catch 22, jay and silent bob (and several kevin smith films, including "dogma"), princeton university, the sopranos, and the celebrated "weird nj."
while accents and hairstyles vary, it is extremely rare that one falls into the stereotypical "joisey" caricature.
New Jersey was a long-time home to Walt Whitman.
i'm from jersey, have been all my life.
i'm gonna spend a lot of time writing this entry. i'll give you everything about jersey, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
first.. new jersey people are conceited. it's true. we hate everyone else. and we think we are better than everyone else. and we never stop talking about how great new jersey is. then we tell people to "shut the fuck up" when they tell us all we talk about is jersey. i just recently was in the south .. and i can honestly say, that i do think i am better than them. it's not my fault.. it's cause i'm from jersey. my friends and i were the rudest, most obnoxious people there. everyone just stared at us. then we saw other rude people, and i asked them where they were from. obviously, they said jersey.
why are new jersey people self centered? becasue we have reason to be. first of all, some of the most famous people have come from our state. just to name A FEW.. tom cruise, frank sinatra, bruce springsteen, kevin smith, whitney houston, martha stewart, lauryn hill, catch 22, anne hathaway, queen latifa, my chemical romance, jack nicholson, bruce willis, the four seasons, danny devito .. and the list goes on. not only do we have famous people.. we rank in the top 10 of smartest states every year.
not only are we smart and famous.. we're rich. bergen, somerset, morris, and hunderton counties rank as in the counties top 15 richest counties. and despite the slums of newark and camden which are some of the coun...
