You are from Massachusetts! You’re a die hard Red Sox fan, love nothing more than grabbing an iced-coffee from Dunkin Donuts. You know all about highways with two names (93 North is also Route 1 South.)
You’re from Connecticut! You opted not to travel too far for school, and rightfully so. CT is a beautiful and quiet state, filled the natural scenery and awesome schools. Oh, and some of the best pizza in the country!
You are from New York! The Empire State is known for its big lights and big city, and you are certainly accustomed to those big city amenities. New York is all about being flashy and in your face- and you’re no exception.
You’re from New Jersey! If there’s anything that’s certain in this world, it’s that NJ has the best bagels, best beaches and best diners. And you’re sure to let out-of-staters know that. All. The. Time.
