I MISS NEW JERSEY


I’ve been living in Western Massachusetts permanently since July 10th, 2013. Before my father moved to New Jersey while serving in the military, he grew up in Western Mass. I have most of my extended family on my father’s side living all in New England area. I grew up in New Jersey though, South Jersey to be exact. I’ve always been about 10 miles away from Philadelphia, about 70 minutes from Atlantic City, and only a few minutes away from at least two Wawa. I really miss Ocean City, NJ. It’s my all time favorite beach! I really want to go to OC (Ocean City) over the summer!

By the way, us South Jersey people do like to abbreviate certain places like:

We also have certain slang words/phrases we use that is influenced by Philadelphia:

  • Hoagie = Sub/Sandwich on a long roll
  • Philly = Philadelphia (It’s not often you’ll hear someone in the area saying the full city name)
  • Bangin’ = Something is really good

Now that I’ve said that I will continue to use my Jersey language in future posts! 🙂
