    then you roll a bit of it up and smoke it anyways

    If you're heading into a city this gets replaced with the lovely sounds of police sirens, homeless people shouting, and your neighbors having sex.

    Enjoy.

    I do have some real concerns about making a jump to the big city but god there's nothing here but bars and farms and stupid little antique shops that sell more doilies and lace than actual antiques.

    you just have to jump in and give it a go
    be open minded
    because one of the best thing about the city is the diversity of people
    the old trannies that don't come even close to passing
    the hipsters
    different nationalities, and just as importantly their cuisine
    all the different types of music you can go see live (as opposed to pretty much just country and classic rock cover bands)

    but if that doesn't appeal to you
    if differences freak you out
    then the city probably isn't for you

    but you don't really know till you take the plunge and give it an honest go

    Brothers and I had show pigs once

    It was pretty miserable

    We told my little brother we sent his piggy Rupert off to a happy farm somewhere

    While we were eating him for breakfast

    edit: Well I could have worded that better, but ah well

    If I hear the Eagles or the Dixie Chicks one more time.

    I am going to live in the city one day, that's not up for debate. I don't really have a backbone and I hesitate a lot but I really hope living in the city is as fun as I imagine it to be. I just need to slap myself in the face and do it.
    Also, tired of power outages. It should be a law in any area with a lot of trees that the lines are put below ground. Anytime the wind is forecasted to gust to 30+ I get the candles out.
    As soon as I can get a job and earn a little more money I'm getting the hell out of dodge.

    If people aren't killing raccoons with shotguns at midnight, something is probably going on. Maybe they aren't home?

    There was a pretty scary incident a number of years ago. There's a meth lab around here, supposedly. I live across the street from a retired security guard who used to work at the lumber mills around Everett. He's kind of a huge asshole, loves to gossip, often refers to people by their nationalities than their names. Anyways he figured out where the meth lab was I guess, I don't remember if he reported it or was threatening to but around midnight near Christmas time someone in a tiny little car fires off a semi-automatic at my neighbor's side gate.
    I was under my desk so fast.

    I got to ask. How is it you people just up and move. I really need to know this because I am the type of person who if I don't have the money to support myself and no job props to where I plan to move I freak out. I have to have these things.

    Anyone have any stories of moving far away from your parents house with no job in mind, minimal cash, and actually making out okay? How does that work.

    I don't even know how you could get an apartment with deposits being so high and stuff =\


    I ask because in December. This may be me.

    Step 1: get yourself a bottle of whiskey.
    Step 2: put on some old country and rock, specifically songs about ramblin' men.

    When I first moved to Edmonton I had zero jobs lined up, about 2k in cash, and a (super shitty) place lined up with some friends.

    i just up and moved on a whim because I wasn't doing shit where I was, and I knew that in Edmonton there were crazy jobs available.

    Having about $2,000 available to me made it a lot easier, but realistically i could have done it with a lot less.

    We moved from Kansas to Alabama when I was 4. I didn't live anywhere else until I went to college in Atlanta. The I moved here, and switched apartments once.

    I don't like moving. I don't anticipate I'll do it again excepting for a move back to the east coast at some point.

    I kinda hate moving

    hate it a lot

    but I spent part of the weekend driving around in fall city and carnation and snoqualmie

    I could live out there in a farmhouse, no fuckin' problem

    big yard, house for cheap, get a place with an old barn, have a nice garden, turn the barn into a game room slash studio and shit

    god I want that so fuckin bad

    less then half an hour from redmond, so I get a job at a studio over here and I'm all good

    metro transit has busses that run out there all the time

    real estate still crazy cheap out there compared to everywhere else around the fucking eastside

    nice library and high speed internet available in fall city, in a town with less then 7,000 people, within a half hour drive of the city

    that's good living

    I quit my job in Japan due to my employers being bullying assholes, moved back to my mom's place in Spokane to find work. That lasted about 3 weeks because her husband is an asshole.
    Moved up to my dad's place outside of Sandpoint, Idaho. It's beautiful, but his place is a converted barn with wood heat and the well busted, so all the water is from the creek and not safe for consumption. This sucks, but the car I was using (I sold mine before leaving for Japan) totally died and I was screwed living 30 minutes from town without a car.
    So, I moved over to Lynnwood and I'm staying with a friend, but I have to find a better job very soon because I have about a month and a half until we agreed I'd leave. In hindsight, I should have sucked it up more in Japan and saved up more money. But at the time I was so extremely stressed at the job that it was making me sick.

    If you've got a non-government job teaching English, they pretty much only have one job in Japan. Any problem you have at one place, you are likely to have at all places

    Very few are Animes themselves, but nearly everyone has friends or family who are or know at least one Anime.

    Funny story, I hooked up with this girl who was a manga writer, published in some weekly serial and everything. And she refused to tell me how old she was, and she had like thousands of dollars in Canadian traveler's checks just laying around, with no plans to go to Canada any time soon. Her sister had a pet chicken, and she got phone pics of the chicken every day doing stupid stuff. Her mom would call her and start singing traditional Japanese songs without even saying hello.

    That was definitely an Anime family.

    more because the way Japanese-born-and-raised individuals approach life is so, so different from my own that I can't even imagine what is going on with them
