10 Ways Living In Philadelphia Ruins You For Life

I had a plan while growing up in South Philadelphia. I would join the Navy at 17, travel around the world, become a writer, live in a high-rise apartment in New York City and continue to travel around the world.

I did join the Navy at 17 and I did travel to Southeast Asia, Europe and other places. I became a writer and I still travel as often as I can. (Most recently to San Antonio, Texas, where I saw the Alamo). 

But rather than moving to New York as planned, I settled back in South Philly after leaving the Navy. I own an historic, nearly 100-year home, only four city blocks from where I grew up. I’m a die-hard South Philadelphian, and for all its faults, I love Philadelphia.

So it was interesting to discover a piece at onlyinyourstate.com about how Philadelphia ruins one for life.        

Living in Philadelphia is something everyone should experience in their lives, but be warned – some things about this city stick around no matter where life leads you. Whether you grew up here or have moved here recently, you should be aware that there are a few ways that living in Philly will ruin you for life.
