For some definition of "good job", that's true everywhere. But I can see your actual point, which is that there aren't enough good jobs in / near #Buffalo, NY. (Nor my #SoCal hometown, either.)

Every state is a red state"

True story: some employees of the agency are staying in #Sacramento and commuting two hours each way to and from work because they claim the town where they work is hostile to darker-skinned people.

@lnxw48a1 when I look at jobs in Los Angeles, it seems there is a huge diversity of work available. Maybe it's closed off from people without specialized skills, though.

Seems like everyone in Buffalo has worked at either a bank or collection agency.

And I do want to live in a more culturally diverse area as well.

@kai I think you should move to #SoCal. You've been really unhappy in #Buffalo, #NY, for several years. You'll never know whether a move to the #Los_Angeles area will improve your life unless you follow Uncle Jed to California.
Give it a decade. If you decide it isn't for you, you can move back to NYState with some different experiences and hopefully better financial resources.

@lnxw48a1 a decade!? If I can even afford to stay that long! πŸ˜…

I do think it's probably my best option. I made a big chart of pros and cons and the worst possible outcome I could come up with was "stabbed at a metro station" πŸ˜‚

@kai @lnxw48a1 Convince @sean to move to LA. Roommates against the city in solidarity. 😎

@sikkdays @lnxw48a1 @sean would be a great roommate! We could have a server room and a music room πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

@kai @lnxw48a1 @sikkdays I'm more than okay with this idea.

Been considering LA for a while, actually.

@sean @lnxw48a1 @sikkdays really!?

I definitely don't want to move without a job lined up so that is a major contingency

but uh, hello roomie πŸ‘‹πŸΌ
