Default Why do you live where you live?

I just heard from a TXIC member that gives me crap occasionally and it got me thinking about the 15 months that I lived in Dallas and how I ended up here in Navajoland. I've seen threads that ask for pics of where you live and that's cool stuff, but why do you live where you live? Not the exact house or apartment, but the city, state, region, etc. Do you enjoy it there? Does it match your lifestyle? If this should take off a bit, I'll post later to answer my own questions.

Cool For the S's

I live in San Clemente CA. I live here for the sun, the surf, the sailing and its as close to San Diego as I can get without going past camp Pendelton. I live in Orange county because of work. I live in CA because my perants moved here when I was young (San Diego or Point Loma to be exact or Sunset Cliffs to be even more exact and Granger St to be precise).

I didn't fall too far from the tree.

We bought a little house a few houses down from where I grew up and have always lived within the area.

I actually like the Pittsburgh, SW Pa area...

Because NYC is the C00l35t!!11!!

MY GF wanted to go to grad school here, I got a job, and the best time to live in NYC is when you are young. I would rather be in SanFran. or Seattle though, maybe when I'm like 30.

I live in Boston because I was born in Rhode Island, and grew up in a Boston suburb.

I would move, but

1. The Red Sox and Patriots are here, I don't think I could ever leave them.

2. I would have to find a job elsewhere

3. I love Boston. It's an awesome city. Granted, I've never been to many other places, so I have very little basis of comparison, but I do love it here (less the winter, I hate winter)

My parents moved from Cape Town to Anchorage, Alaska in 1993. I moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan to go to school (University of Michigan). Met my boyfriend, who was originally from NC, but living in Metro-Detroit. We took a trip to the beach one summer and to visit family, and decided it was way better than Detroit. I transferred within my company....and POOF....we live in Tobacco Road.

We love it. It's aethistically pleasing, great weather, great people, recreation nearby, better cost of living. Detroit is, well, Detroit. Alaska is just way too far away to move back there. Cape Town is a great place to visit now, but moving back there just isn't practical.

I live here becuase someone tells me where to live, and they make me move every three years, hence all the red on the map.

Reminds me of a high school friend. We;re from LA, but he lives & works in San Francisco right now. When I asked him if he was going to stay up there permanently, he said no, because "I'm not letting my kids grow up to be 49er fans." Greatest quote evar.

I live in greater Los Angeles because I love congestion, smog, and self absorbed corn-holes who are all convinced that they're better than me.

(Actually I do love it here. Weather, women and activities make all the b.s. worth it.)

I hate it here. My job, my school, and my G/F are the only things keeping me here. Will leave ASAP.

Well my mom and dad moved into this house when I was in the 3rd grade because they wanted to be closer to our church.

Then my mom started sleeping with the preacher, and my mom and dad divorced and I moved into an apartment down the road and my dad stayed in this house.

Then my dad sold the house to my mom so that we could go to good schools, but then a week later the preacher my mom was sleeping with moved in with us.

I still live at home because I'm trying to save money, but thats what I'm here.

I was raised in Santa Barbara, CA, moved to Asheville, NC when I was about 20, lived in Providence, RI for about a year, the bay area for a couple years (Santa Clara and San Francisco). Moved back to NC to the Raleigh area just over two years ago.

The reason we chose Raleigh is simple - the quality of life here is perfect. Everything is cheap here - from housing, to car insurance, utilities, property taxes, etc. We have everything we would like - the Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) has an endless assortment of cultural opportunities including a thriving art and music scene (each city with its own distinct flavors). We get four distinct seasons, the scenery is absolutely stunning. We're four hours from the mountains, two from the sea. Outdoor activities are endless - hunting, fishing, hiking, mountain-biking, kayaking, etc. The people here are extremely friendly and it's really easy to make close real friends. It is easy to be an entrepreneur here - start up costs are lower and there isn't the intense competition you'll see in the big citits like New York, LA and SF. It's easy to be an artist - the cost of living is lower, so being a part-time whatever to support your passion is actually realistic.

We may move again someday simply for a change of scenery, but we absolutely love it right now.

True for me 2.

We moved to Brooklyn from P.R. before I was even 2 yrs old. We lived in NYC for 3 years before moving to NJ. Been living in the same city for the last 23 years. Being married and having two kids in the last 10 years has given me an itch to move somewhere nicer but, I don't think I can leave the major metro area. The city life is what I know: the rush hours, crammed interstates, huge potholes, noisy neighbors, loud music from cars on the street at 3am, and any possible store or shopping center practically minutes away. Within a decent driving distance from amusement parks, beaches, lakes, beautiful state parks, skiing, casinos, mountain trails, race tracks, Devils, Nets, Giants/Jets, and Yankees... all near by. I can't stand the idea of living in a suburb, even though I think it's eventually going to happen by a certain age.

I moved to the Seattle area because of the job I got when I graduated college. I've only been here a couple of years, but I love it. The only thing I dislike is how poorly designed and run all the transportation related stuff is.

i live in jersey.

im here because of a good paying software job, fiance, and mom and dad. i would like to move out to san diego, but i dont like my job enough to dedicate 50-75% on living expenses alone.

im starting a food business, hoping for the best, saving money, and hoping in the future to buy a small property in maui, and spend the winter months there.

I wouldn't say ALL of it. I thought the free underground bus system was pretty cool.

Lots of urbanites here; cool.

I graduated from school in December of '99 and my 'real' job started in June of '00, so I had the spring to kill. My GF at the time, now Wifey, graduated a semester before me and wanted to do some volunteer work overseas. Long story short, she ended up on Navajo and I spent the spring here. Then we moved to Dallas. Traffic. Crowds. Heat. No outdoor scene at all that didn't involve at least 3 hours of driving round trip. Wanted to move back out west and ended up coming back to where we volunteered, but with salaried positions. Great lifestyle, school schedule for both of us, decent money so we can afford to move in 18 mos or so and not be too limited as far as where to go. This can be a challenging place to live since it's so remote, but the majority of what we enjoy doing doesn't rely on anything we'd pay for in a city, so it's been good. Lots of good roads for the car and bike, good dirt roads for the car, good trails for running and riding. Anything from Phoenix and Vegas to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and southern Colorado's mountains are within a 6 hour drive from us. Great part of the world to live in; incredibly varied. Definately 4 seasons, good people. But, we're about ready to leave as many of the folks we've really gotten close to are on their way out.
