I'm probally totally wrong. right?
Back in the day I did my fair share of partying over there, and I wasn't even a student. I don't know how it is now though, since I haven't been on the campus for years.

I've thought about moving to hawaii alot, but my wife switching careers and me making 1/3rd of what I make on mainland prevents me from doing so.

Trapped and used? Nah, more like you get into a comfort zone.

Pros of living in Hawaii:
People are generally nice to each other
Lots of diversity
The food is awesome
Pretty girls
Nice beaches
Great weather
Beautiful scenery
No rabid animals
Quality weed
Excellent medical coverage

Cons of living in Hawaii:
Traffic is bad
Expensive cost of living
Low wages
Lots of people here have xenophobia
Rock fever (similar to cabin fever)
Potholes all over the place
Aging infrastructure
At least half of the state is a ghetto
State is too dependent on tourism industry
The state government heavily taxes its citizens
Public educational system usually rates near the bottom in the U.S.
Too many unionized employees
Crystal Meth capital of the world
Corrupt government officials
Sometimes it's just too damned hot and humid
Hurricanes (rare) and other inclement weather
Did I mention the traffic is bad?


Somebody let me know if I missed anything.

It's sappy, but there's no place like home.
My sympathies to those who work in town and do the daily commute during rush hour from Kapolei and back.
