Are You From Columbus?

OK, so that last post was a little boring...but I'm keeping it all Columbus today, so here's a list my girl, fellow journalist Tiffany Collins sent me about the CO. I remember most of this stuff, how about you...

You know you're from the CO if...

2)You remember when 106.3 use to be the station
3) And you remember Hot 105.7
4) You think the only important sides of town are North and East
5) When a Nextel Chirps, EVERYONE checks their phone!
6) You continue to go to every single festival, the Rib Fest, the Latino fest, the Boom and the block party, no matter how many times you swear you too old for that shit.
7) You remember the Krome when it was HOT!
8) And you remember the Krome when it was Enigma, and thought you was doing something by being there on teen nights
9) You remember teen nights, period.
10) The name “DJ Dru” means something to you
11) Whenever you ain’t got shit else to do, you hit up the spot... Applebees!
12) You say “send,” as in “you tryna send me?” LOL, NO ONE ELSE SAYS THAT SHIT!
13) And you say Bro, like it’s normal
14) After you say O-H, you know someone, anyone, will respond I-O
15) You’re the only one on facebook that knows what CSCC stands for

26) Lil Hollywood, lol
27) You know all the words to Sean Anthony’s theme song from like 2002, “Sean Anthony, is on the mic..”
28) You were geeked when you saw Rashad on Midnight Love
29) “Dipset in the building” means nothing to you, cuz them niggas is ALWAYS in the building
30) You still tryna figure out why Cam’ron claims Columbus like he was born and raised there. Ain’t he from New York?
31) You were riding down the street this summer, and every car was blastin Jeezy

WELCOME TO BUCKEYE CITY...My big cuz D. Goins was involved in that track...RIP. I miss you!

Skating from 8-11 on Friday nights was the bomb. I bet the lock-ins were hot too, although my mom never let me go.

Thanks for taking me down memory lane!

I wasn't ever able to go to those skating lock-ins either...but I couldn't skate anyway, I just liked to look at boys!

Shout outs to all the people that could for real dance on their 8th grade prom was at United Skates! (No skating though)

Shout outs to Buckeye City! Thanks for the love...

Ha, I worked in Gahanna when that lion was loose! So yeah, I guess I'm not from Columbus. Well, there's some other ones in there that I can't get down with, but you'll have that.
