IF YOU WERE A STATE, WHAT STATE WOULD YOU BE?

And why? {don't just default to your home state!}
  1. I'm Vermont I think, because I like the outdoors; small, close-knit communities; and social justice! AND pancakes/maple syrup! AND Middlebury's a small liberal arts college!
    I'm from Arizona!
  2. Kansas! Ok yes I'm from Kansas, but, I'd like to think Kansas is that shy little state everyone forgets about, but is actually pretty great.
    Everyone jumps to conclusions about it, but they don't really know what it's like till they spend time there. I feel like people always expect one thing from me, and then find out I'm way more awesome when they get to know me.
