Had some good times down there, and still have great friends there, but we wanted to move north to get back to the south.


West Palm is definitely a cool place to live, but it doesn't resemble the south.

you'd wager correctly. the triangle (raleigh, durham, chapel hill) is fricking lovely.
Nice. I just took a shot, North Carolina sounds great. Has mountains, has coastline, and the weather is awesome. If you want some metro hustle, check out Charlotte. If you want to chill, go most other places.

most other cities have some sort of landscape surrounding it, but not Houston, just fricking nothing

i see that as a sort of efficiency

now in terms of natural beauty, no the Houston area is lacking. but there aren't many places where the vast majority of the population ever takes full advantage of those natural assets

well those cities are "in" until they become expensive, then those of that ilk flock to the next "in" city

austin was portland 5 years ago, and denver was austin 15 years ago


austin is still austin. denver is still denver. portland will still be portland.

quote:

well i said it was #1, not the only factor


for people with degrees and accomplished in their field, you can find a job in most cities, even in this economy. getting the job is only a hurdle. while you're living in a city, you're not going. "well i have a job, therefore i like living here."

I can tell you "character" would be pretty low on my list.

i just want to have an operational definition of "character" and "culture" for these discussions

it seems that the "in" cities get lauded with these attributes automatically, while places like houston, which has, for instance, the 2nd biggest theater district in the country (behind only NYC) magically have no culture

You're clearly an expert. Having lived in Seattle for 4 years, I feel like I can confidently say that you're exaggerating. We're currently in the middle of a 70+ day streak with one rainy day, and it rained for about 2 hours.

eta: I just googled. It rained for 14 minutes

Indianapolis is a really underrated city.

If you want to try midwest id say Indy or Chicago. Probably wouldn't enjoy anything much colder than that.

You should consider Portland and Seattle if you feel you would fit well into those crowds in the PNW.

you're having your indian summer right now. but for the most part, me and everyone i talk to can say it's gray/ drizzly 85% of the time. you're a little bit different than portland not being surrounded by mountains.

austin is still austin.

lots of people i know from ATX keep bitching about how different it is now

half seems to be bitching about californian transplants and half seems to be bitching about how it was just better when "nobody knew about it"

quote:

while you're living in a city, you're not going. "well i have a job, therefore i like living here."

unless you can't find jobs, and then it matters

or, unless you are subsidizing your life by (1) living off your rich parents or (2) not paying back your student loans. our generation is a big fan of not paying back what they owe, though, so that makes subsidizing their life easier.

the whole stupid "occupy" movement was a bunch of kids who couldn't get a job to pay back their student loans

there aren't that many young people who are accomplished in their field, esp right outside of college. you can only become accomplished in your field by having a job to gain a rep

Just because you think it sucks, doesn't mean you are anywhere close to being correct.

or maybe you just feel like you have to compensate/rationalize your own life choices.


Funny, considering your posts in here, I pegged you as the insecure one.

The rest of your post is completely irrelevant to anything I've said. We aren't talking about vacation cities. Do you want to live in Gulf Shores? And I never once said Houston was the best, just calling you a moron for calling it the worst. Get it?

right, but after that, you can't really count on it to add quality to your life.

a job is a necessity not an amenity. this question isn't where can i find a job. the OP presupposes being able to find work.

I live just outside of Chattanooga and I absolutely love it. I really enjoyed Houston, TX when I visited as well.

yeah but jobs are a big deal in an America with possibly 15-20% unemployment

the next step would be cost of living

i have nothing to gain/lose bashing houston.

just name me a worse major city. the only ones i might accept are dallas or detroit. or orlando. orlando really sucks. nothing but old people and disneyland.
