Moving to Seattle!
« on: June 27, 2014, 11:38:30 PM »
I'm going to be moving from LA to Seattle next week. Curious if anyone lives there or has any recommendations on stuff to do? :)

^ Thank you Lady Ry'en ^_^

I know a few people that live there, one being my step sister. I've been there once but I know there's a good farmer's market. What's making you move from LA to Seattle? too ghetto for you in LA? haha...

There's a possibility that I may move there after I get my degree in electrical engineering. I'm contemplating Montana, Utah, and someplace in Oregon, as well, though.

Be careful. Seattle is notorious for drug related crime.

My brother is moving from MT to Seattle next year. He's probably going to live with my boyfriend and I for a year first to save up money and such.

I don't know about any of the sites other than the obvious, so noooo idea about stuff to do. My advice is to buy an umbrella if you don't have one!

Rowan, if you end up coming up here, we should meet up!

Boyfriend got into grad school in U-Washington - I'm moving so we can stay together, transferring offices within my firm. I didn't like LA that much at first, but it has really grown on me over time. I'm actually going to miss it :(

Oregon is driving distance :) Would be great to meet up should we end up nearby each other! I'll watch out for crime - I can't imagine it's worse than LA though. ;)

Haha, I've actually heard all the locals don't have umbrellas, and just kind of tough it out :p

I thought he had one already, given the few pics I've seen. I don't bother with umbrellas here in Georgia, either. I enjoy the sensations that rain can give me.

Has anyone seen Portlandia?
I like the episode where they see the cover of Portland weekly, "Seattle!"

I heard that it is cloudy but when it rains it only sprinkles.

Thanks guys! I loved Seattle, actually - I moved back to LA to take a really good job offer at a start-up that is located near LA.

A good job is all you need to motivate a move, haha. I currently have a job I love but the pay is basically minimum wage.

Going where the job opportunities are, that makes sense. That was part of the reason why I moved from NY to SC and I don't regret it at all. :)
