help shape my future!!!!
which would be the coolest place to live?
leave your reasons in comments if you feel a need to justify
cabin in NY home in CA 1 summer - NY winter - CA
and spend spring and fall on the road between the 2 that way your not just stuck in 1 place all the time and you can get more out of living and you meet many more friends and see others traveling from coast to coast :)
i'm from georgia. i'm not sure how well harsh winters will work with me.
but most of the good grad schools seem to be in the northeast, so i have little choice.
the opinions i've gotten from people about mass are mixed. it seems to be either you love it or want to bomb it off the face of the earth and nothing in between.
I lived in Georgia for a bit, it was alright...
As far as Mass goes for schools, yeah. They are good. It is EXPENSIVE as hell to live up here though, so consider that too. If you are going to school chances are you aren't going to be able to work full time to cover bills. The place I live in now could easily go, even in its crappy condition, for 1000$ a month plus utilities. It's smaller than every place I had in the southern US, costs more and is in far worse condition.
My mom lives in Texas now, she said after being in the south a few years there was no way in hell she'd go back to Ohio, even though she was born and lived there for over 30 years.
Massachusetts weather is also weird. 3 days ago it was really hot and humid to the point where I was walking around in underwear and then today I have a long jacket on.
i'm strapped for cash right now because living in atlanta is so fucking expensive.
i have a 920 sq foot one bedroom apt and it's running me $700 a month plus utilities.
i'm actually leaning more towards new york, just because of it being a major cultural hub, and i think being in a cultural hub would be the best place to learn my trade, but i figure wherever i move, i'm pretty fucked unless i stumble upon a really good job.
I picked Ohio because I've visited MA, NY, and CA, and they don't seem like great places to live. Either too dirty, expensive, or crowded.
Ohio won't be nearly as expensive, and if you get scholarships and whatnot for grad school, they'll go a LOT farther in Ohio than they will in NY and such. I don't make much in a year, but in the midwest (Indiana specifically), it's amazing how far it goes. I've got friends going to grad school in MA (MIT, Harvard, the Boston area), nad they are always strapped for cash.
Plus, Ohio is within driving distance of Indiana :)
i like dirty and crowded.
the school in ohio seems good. but, it ohio. you never hear about anything happening in ohio. i want to learn in a place where things are happening, so i can graduate completely ready to jump into the field wherever i go. i dunno how long it takes for graphic styles to trickle down to the midwest.
I don't know about the other places but...california is extremely expensive, and lots of people there are...consumer whorish? Just a different mindset that's way different than the way I was raised. But if you want to live like a king (and can afford it), it's a really fun place.
I'm considering moving to vegas. =]
i would totally just be bumming around, because i would be in grad school.
my family is from cali, and i desperately want to mvoe back there, just to see what i've been missing out on since i lived in georgia.
and the weather seems nice and constant. and there's beaches, i dunno if i could survive long without beaches.
Not to be a nitpicking bastard.........
But right now you've got 57.9% + 52.6% + 5.3% + 26.3% + 10.5% = 152.6 %. Quite interesting.
Lemme check something..........
More Interesting! Maybe something isn't refreshing on my computer, because all of the percentatges (as I see them now) are being calculated with a total of 19 votes, when you actually have 29 votes total.
Anyone have any ideas as to what could cause this?
