Beware of this place. It not like the rest of the country. People here will recoil from you if you express any emotion, or opinion or light any fire of enthusiasm. Conversation here is on the surface, limited to the acceptable topics. You can never rock the boat. All your friends will be transplants (or some who came here from the rural area), as you are not welcome unless you join the cult of Minnesota. This means having no sense of humor, especially self deprecating, constant parroting off this poll or poll, or statistic that about how great Minneapolis is.. The human experience will prove otherwise. Be prepared to feel unconnected, and like an outsider.. And is you do break through be prepared to conform to a humkorless, Scandinavian culture that is resentfully scare dof its own shadow.. I know Minneapolis is politically progressive, but is hand down the most conservative place I've ever lived or been. You soud will wither an die here.. Run! Don't walk away from Minnesota.

Where can I live cheap as an AmeriCorps volunteer?I have an opportunity to spend a year in Minneapolis as a volunteer with Minnesota Reading Corps. I'm wondering how easy it is to find any size apartment in the $600-$1000/ mo. range, as that would be my living stipend. Also has anyone done work with Reading Corps? I'd love to connect.
