Looks great, right? No! I hate it and I SO want to be anywhere else at the moment... Ok, so maybe not "anywhere" but you get the point. Don't get me wrong... It's a great place to come visit. But living here is driving me crazy. It's been 3 years now so I think I've got a pretty good feel for this place.
1. WAY too many illegal aliens.
2. It's at least 2 hours from any other decent size town... so you're stuck here.
3. There's a stabbing pretty much every day... and no, I'm not joking.
4. It's too far away from home (for me). [It's 7 1/2 hours from Dallas]
I could go on... but I think you get the idea.
There are a few places that I would love to live for at most a year... (Who knows? I might LOVE it and want to stay! lol It would be hard to be that far away from my family though... I'm very close with my family)
Los Angeles, CA
This seems like a place where people go to chase their dreams... I'd like to hear the stories of where people came from and about their goals. It would be an interesting place I believe.
New York City, NY
Now this place, I could only stay for a bit I'm sure. Number 1, it'd probably be too cold for me. lol I hate the cold! I'm a Texas girl for goodness sakes! But I would love to stay for a bit... I'd love just to TRY to work for my favorite magazine or catch a broadway show.
San Francisco, CA
I've been here one time and I completely fell in love with it! It is such a beautiful place with lots of different kinds of people. I remember that everyone seemed so friendly... It's such a healthy place and very dog friendly! *sigh*
Realistically, this is where I'm headed...
