You live within 30 minutes from the beach but never go there in the Summer do to them being overcrowded
The beach is the shore
You either love or hate New York City
You have at least 10 pairs of hats and sun glasses
You defend your state to outsiders but then bash it just as much
You rarely if ever refer to your state as Jersey
You know of people who were affiliated with the mafia
You know what real pizza taste like
You hate the TV Show Jersey shore
You have called New York City NYC before.
You think Trenton is the worst place ever
You know people who hate New York City but still like their sports teams.
You don't eat seafood, despite living so close to the ocean
Cheese Pizza is Plain Pizza and nothing else
You pronounce Mario Mae-Rio
Newark is Ne-wark
You'll go to other states such as Maryland Delaware and Virginia to go to the beach just to avoid the overcrowding of your own.
You live for Summer
I'm from New Jersey
