Re: Moving to a New City

50 miles is a pretty loose definition of near.

    Lee's posts here are not a good look for either California or Texas.

    EDIT: And the first 50 miles of states that border California and Texas.

    Thank you for trolling. We all can't be from the meccas of the Dakotas.

    Haha...you calling out someone for trolling.

    Youve been shot down numerous times in this thread Lee.

    Time for you to put your tail between your legs and move along.

    I've joined some job groups on FB and been in contact with some companies down there about informational interviews over the phone. Worst case I can always use a recruiter. Hopefully something comes through!

    gotcha. Just wondering if maybe I know people or jobs in your area of expertise, but no dice, sorry.

    Haha yeah I'm more in the logistics/forecasting/budgeting side of things than slinging sneakers. But I appreciate the thought man!

    Close! I moved to Dallas.

    I'm not much help though, as work is what brought me down here. So I can't help with the job hunt stuff.

    I can tell you though - as someone moving from a climate similar to yours - do NOT underestimate how fucking hot it gets down here. I mean...it's unreal. For like 3 months straight you open your door and feel like you just shoved your face in the oven. It gets really, really old really, really fast.

    i have a friend that did a boston to austin move as well. she's been there for over a year with her boyfriend. when you make the move, make sure you and your gf both get your own social network and branch out to other people. it can be easy to rely on each other to meet people, but i think thats kinda dangerous. i visited my friend after she had been settled there for a year and she doesn't have one girl friend, she only hangs out with her bf and his friends. she appears very dependent, which i never chalked her up to be

    yeah i always wonder which is worse- getting through the brutal northern winters or getting through the brutal southern summers. trying to run in single digit temperatures sucks in the winter but it's usually somewhat manageable. on the otherhand, i once tried to go for a run in august when i was in memphis, the sun wasn't even up yet but the humidity killed me. buckets of sweat in minutes. it wasn't even 7am yet

    Amen to this. Friends of mine down here just split (they were dating for 5+ years), and now the girl is realizing she doesn't have her own friends, and how lonely that is. She's been trying to get me to come out, but I haven't yet because it's sooooo awkward.

    IMO, the southern summers are more brutal, and I've always enjoyed hot weather. I just can't handle it being every. single. fucking. day. For MONTHS.

    And the worst part? When the sun goes down? It's still fucking hot! Oh yeah, during the day it's only 103, but at night it gets down to a chilly 99!

    Having moved to TN from Wisconsin, I agree with this completely. The key difference is that it's extraordinarily more difficult to be able to sleep in brutally hot weather than it is to do so in frigid winters.
