19 Struggles You'll Only Understand If You Were Born And Raised In The Midlands
No, we're not northern. Nope, not southern either.
First off, you've wasted way too much of your lifetime arguing with southerners that you're not northern...
...and explaining to northerners that you're not southern.
Because at this point, you're not even sure any more.
So you'll continue to tell people that you're a Midlander, and just accept the bemused looks on their faces because apparently no one knows what that means.
And even you don't know where the Midlands ~technically~ ends.
You're frankly sick and tired of answering the question of "What's actually there?"
Because the Midlands is packed with beautiful scenery...
Exciting city life...
And fun days out that you couldn't find anywhere else.
But that's OK, because the reasons to stay in the Midlands are plenty...
For example, there's way too much great food here to ever leave, because if you leave you wouldn't have time to eat it all.
And the area is so rich with culture that you definitely don't have time to take it all in.
Basically, you're completely sick of people dismissing the Midlands as crap...
Because ONLY MIDLANDERS ARE ALLOWED TO SAY THAT.
