What I’ve Learned About Living In The South, Written By The Least Southern Person Ever

I’m quite the anomaly.

I’ve lived in the south pretty much all my life, yet I still feel like an outsider.

I LEGIT spent the first 6-7 years of my life living in a very rural part of Georgia. So rural, that the nearest grocery store was 25 minutes away.

Even though I was deep in the good ‘ol south, I still remain my little German-born baby self.

Maybe it is because of my first year-and-a-half spent in Europe.

I don’t know, but I do know that I need to stop ranting and get on with this post.


Being an introvert is almost impossible.

• Everyone (but me, of course) drinks sweet tea.

• Next to sweet tea, everyone drinks lemonade for some reason.

• People are biscuit obsessed.

• There’s a Chick-Fil-A everywhere you turn.

• Some people actually prefer Zaxby’s over Chick-Fil-A, and I can’t blame them.

• (almost) everyone wears camouflage.

• People think it’s fun to hunt innocent deers or something. Freaking weirdos.

• The humidity is unbearable at times.

• Speaking of weather, it’s weird. Cold and dry one day, and then hot and sticky the next.

• The old folks are nice. Do something nice for them, and they give you homemade fried chicken or something.

This list is long enough, and I’m tired.


This coming Friday is QTC’s one year birthday! I’ve got SO MANY special things planned, so stay tuned. 😝

Update on AWAE:

We are still waiting for Anne With An E to be approved for a third season. Here are some ways you can help:

• Spread the word! Get your friends to watch the show.

• Share on social media! Include the hashtags #wakeupandwatchannE and #renewannewithane

• Talk to Netflix! They listen, so drop a comment, DM them, or call them directly.

• Watch the show with other Netflix accounts!

The world needs this show. Let’s do this, Anne Clan! 😀

I hope you enjoyed this post! I’ll see you all on Friday for QTC’s one year birthday! 🎉

    1. You’re allowed to have your own opinion, but just know Anne With An E is WAY more relevant to the history of that time than Anne Of Green Gables. Please have an open mind, and watch it knowing it will be different than the original. Don’t want you to miss out on a good thing.

      1. Yeah, that’s what I said. Anne Of Green Gables never brought up important topics like racial prejudice, homosexuality, and mental illness. I’m not saying AWAE is better or anything like that, I’m just simply encouraging you to not be so close-minded about it.

  1. Okay, no offence buttttt, hunting deer is way fine. and why don’t you sweet tea?? And zaxbys is weird. And we don’t need em down here. And old folks are nice. But trust me, they give you money…. So that is all I have to say.

  2. Lol I feel ya… I’ve always lived in the south but I’m not very southern. I do like sweet tea and Chick-fil-a though. And sometimes an accent comes out. But I hate camouflage and monograms.

  4. This is so true!! I live in the South but I grew up for the first 10 yrs of my life in Illinois. I’m a true northerner. I can’t stand sweet tea either but I do love lemonade and Chick-Fil-A. 😉 Can’t wait to see what you have planned for Friday. Also I just started a new blog and I was wondering if you have any tips, you’ve seemed to be so successful over the past year. 😀

  5. Hi Bekah! 👋🏻 This is Ashley from Jazzercise class! I ran across your blog after your mom told me about it. How awesome! I can totally relate to you on this on some level. I was born here but my grandmother was Italian and that half of my family lives in New York! I always loved (and still do) the New York life from the big city buildings all the way to the extroverted people who live there. Any song talking about NY can bring me to tears and don’t get me started on Frank Sinatra and anything Italian related. Lol! However, I’ve only visited NY one time and we live out in the country 20 something minutes from e v e r y t h i n g. I know that if I ever lived in NY it would be too much for this extroverted introvert. Meaning I can be extroverted but only if an extroverted person (aka people like your mom!) pulls it out of me. Being in social situations physically drains me as well! I love being alone! So, I’m glad I have another blog to read when I’m doing that! See you in the dance floor!! 💃🏼
