    Ideal cities and Holiday depression.

    So where is it..Does it exsist? That city with pretty nice climate..funky old brick buildings..A large body of water near by...It can be a nice river running through or just a lake..or hopefully near the ocean..Im looking for a city with a pretty nice scene for steel yet has a nice variety of style at the same time..Where is rent actually semi affordable yet has that city "feel " to it? Im staring to doubt its out there really..
    You ever need to move but cant put your finger on the real reason..and if you do cant figure out where the fuck to go..So many cities seem to have it made besides details..
    It funny..I put pressure on the city I live in because of writing issues..when Most of the "average" people in this country move for basic climate or job availability..

    Most of the people that know me on this board dont even come here any more..haha..So I dont blame you for thinking this is a weird one..

    Three years ago I would have killed for what I have now..And I worked really hard to be where im at..So whats with my obsession for this ideal city?
    whats your ideal city..and if you know of any that fit mine..thats cool also..:D

    i live in my ideal metropolitan area. which is why i live here. its ideal.

    i do got holiday deppression though. i hate that shit. it sucks. no fun. lame. wack. played out. annoying. frustrating. pointless. not my fault cause im manic-wait no it was the bipolar test i aced.

    to feel better i walk alone in the streets and smoke blunts while looking at graffiti. and painting graffiti helps to.

    fuck prozac.

    hi rent and and expensive weed habit.

    fuck buying gifts for people.

    what you got on my blunt homey.

    oh and by the way silloette,

    sounds like sacremental when i lived there in 96 was your ideal city.....
    HUGE STEEL YARD. we paid 500 for a 3 bedroom flat and the scene was chill..

    however since then rent went way up and the yards got burned.

    Where I live is fucking cool as hell when I think about it. Its about 60 degrees out right now, the beach is a 10 minute bike ride (and CLEAN), I have a great local dive, awesome restaurants, it's clean and safe and people are generally nice and down to earth. There's shows every night, but you have to have a car to get around outside of my small town. I live in a suburb, but its really it's own little scene, which is how a lot of southern cali is.

    I have no freights and can't think of one person here who can relate to any part of the "graffiti scene" here apart from my best friend who is moving up north for snowboarding season in 3 days..... I'm insanly unhappy. Wow --graffiti runs my life, I won't deny that. Itt sucks. I think I'm gonna find what I want soon, but not on this coast... I guess I better go buy a jacket, eh?

    p.s. I love you siloette.

    HAWAII......where Christmas doesnt exist.

    if you came out here by the summer time..i could train you into becoming a full-on beach girl, you paint with "the mac", you catch waves with me.life out here is straight relax...there is no time out here..life slows down.a lot of people like it when they come out here..cause the rest of the world is bullshit..we have our bullshit, but the power is still with the people.besides, its so much more different than any other place you will ever go to.
    i know arizona is kinda shitty and im glad i moved outa there.thats all i can say...the "bay area" is good(thats my other home)..i didnt like LA..i didnt really like the east coast, but i do love san francisco and hawaii.san diego is ok...but there are good reasons to be out here in hawaii.i can say that this place changes you into a whole other you..i changed bigtime once i came here.its all good though.a lot of people from other places are moving here..from other staes to other countries..this is the melting pot of the world and there is excellent food.
  7. that city sounds like Boston, except that the climate gets cold, and the rent is high... its got that old city feel with all the buildings though.

    just move out of the fuckin states. it sucks! i've found the spot your dreaming about. it's a small town that's only 40 km away from a huge city that you can jump on a bus to get to every half hour for two bucks to take care of your graff needs and if you get busted most of the time you can pay the cops off. but then again when your in paradise who cares about graff. rent is pretty close to free compared to the states and if i wasn't visiting my family for the holidays i'ld be wearing shorts during the day. there's alot of ideal places that i've found and none are in the states.
  9. San Juan, PR

    Old style? You got it. A lot of the buildings are almost 500 years old. Spanish colonial style standing right next to the metropolitan area.

    Climate? 80° all year-round.

    Next to water? It's practically IN the water. Hundreds of world class beaches less than 20 minutes away.

    Steel? That's a hard one. No freights in PR... but San Juan has a gigantic port, and there's thousands and thousands of cargo holds to hit, not to mention boats and barges. Perfect for insanely large rollers like that TIE boat.

    This is a tough nut to crack. I'm tired...not enough sleep. This will all be garbled mess.

    nice climate: Well considering where you're from, I'd say you need somewhere green. The northwest is always obvious, but that could be regression depending on how you think about it. You know how I feel about the bay area, but I suppose that's out for other reasons. It's a wonderful place though...it can be green, the people can be nice, don't know much about the scene...East coast has a different feel. It's colder...in more ways than one. I grew up here so I don't analyze it as much. It has it's wonderful moments, and sometimes I hate it. The south? I've always wanted to see Montana in the spring. The brick buildings...you can find in most towns that are holding on to their historical past I guess. Have you looked into canada? VC and whatnot. Still the same area sort of...and you know about it.

    tough nut to crack indeed

    Love boston. my fav city so far. but it's too damn cold, way too damn cold. it's been hovering in the teens every morning in December. and the rent/real estate is crazy expensive.

    i wanna move to brazil or miami. so hot.
