re: Leaving Lousiana? - kingbob
I tried to find a job in Denver. I got through three rounds of interviews and didn’t get the job. I’m still kinda heartbroken about it. I’m thinking about signing up for the February bar exam there and getting serious about relocating ...

[quote]He visited his relatives in Katy once and thinks all big cities are like that minus New Orleans and Nashville. [/quote] Once again, I’m sayin the opposite of that. New Orleans has its own unique draws like most large, dense, pre-WWII cities. Chicago has identify, Portland has identity, De...

[quote]New Orleans isn't the only city with things that are unique to the city though which was my point. There are things unique to San Francisco, NYC, Miami, etc that you won't find anywhere else. We don't have to act like New Orleans is the only city with its own unique culture or identity.[/quot...

[quote]with plenty of things for locals to do[/quote] The drawback is that those things that Houston has for locals to do are had by literally every other city of remotely similar size. They’re not unique to Houston, and people don’t have to come to Houston, and only Houston, to experience them. ...

re: Leaving Lousiana? - kingbob
I’ve tried to leave several times, but I really really really really don’t want to live in Houston. I find my biggest hurdle is in trying to find a job out of state that isn’t in Houston. It’s like, hey, there’s a big world out there! Get out of this shithole and experience it! That’s right, there’s...

[quote]Half of this applies to NOLA too. [/quote] Of course it does, but New Orleans also offers tons of music, arts, architecture, and food found literally nowhere else on earth. New Orleans has the same drawbacks as Houston (and then some), but it also has some really big attractive qualities ...

[quote]is there a state that doesn’t have this? [/quote] Very few places offer experiences even remotely resembling the Cajun Rivierra. There’s a few places around Mobile Bay/Orange Beach that sorta come close, and some spots in Florida, but it’s pretty unique. There may be some similar experien...

[quote]How is downtown these days compared with back then? [/quote] It’s almost back to its pre-Katrina level of ghost town status. Mayor Broome ordered BRPD to enforce open-container laws on 3rd Street to get back at John Delgado for attempting to organize a recall initiative against her. It kil...

Plus, it doesn’t have any kind of local unique cuisine, the fishing is pretty garbage, the nearby beaches are garbage, there’s no mountains, no aesthetic building architecture just strip malls and mcmansions, little original music or unique local styles of music being made there, no aesthetic or int...

I also found the city was really trending in the right direction in the first half of the 2010’s but did a complete reversal in trajectory in 2016 and has only continued to slowly destroy all the progress the city made post post Katrina during the latter Kip years....

re: Leaving Lousiana? - kingbob
Yeah, notice I didn’t include BR on my list of great places in the state to live. My issue with Houston is that it’s too much like Baton Rouge :lol: I think BR gets slightly more hate on this site than it deserves, but its reputation as a run-down, crime infested, traffic-snarled, flood-prone, AI...
