    Oakland is a lot cheaper than NYC or SF, but there isn't a whole lot to do. Well, I find ways to pass the time....It ain't Manhattan, though. Don't let Broadway fool you.

    Hell, I like it here. It's the only place I've ever felt at home.

    i had a blast in oakland, i wandered the city everyday, lived in a suburban, racked food 3xdaily from safeway, got free alcohol at longs, and drank/chilled at an abandoned resaraunt. i also went to parties in sf a lot. got in a fight one night with some friends against some skate nerds and we were at a pirate party so we were all dressed like pirates in the middle of the street

    I work in a printlab for 8$/hour, and waitress (though I could be now fired, which blows,) and sometimes mooch off the parents (hey, I admit it.)
    You could live off waiting tables easy in NY, if you do it a lot. Also, TS blows during NYE, only tourists go. I RARELY step foot in ts... well, anything above 15th Street doesnt really exist for me.

    i'll say it again, move to vegas!

    higher pay
    cheaper living
    free drinking (if you like to gamble)
    it NEVER closes
    booming economy
    much better weather


    i am giving some thought to this for myself.

    yeah i agree. that is my real issue with vegas, no substance, no culture. that and the fact that is isn't near the ocean. i like the fact i live 20min. away from the ocean (and if i'm lucky in a few months i'll be living 2 blocks away).
