(orbitingio @ Feb. 18 2005,09:28) Plus y'all don't even got that Freaknik no more.
Where's that at now?
I think Freaknik was laid to rest by local authorities due to the level of public difficulty experienced.

My concern with San Francisco is obvious -- friends have told me crackhouses will run you half a mil.
Not much worse than NYC, San Jose, or Boston.

I live in Charlotte, NC and the single life here is terrible.  I would strongly discourage anyone that is young and single from moving to Charlotte.   You might want to keep your eye on the annual ranking of the best cities for singles by Forbes

I love music, art, and local culture.  I dislike big box chain stores.  I like modern areas.  I'm an atheist.  I don't like winter and would prefer never to see snow again.  In fact, I prefer weather that you never have to think about.  Above all else, I like being able to pick up and go do something at any given moment.  I like areas that are alive and kicking 24 hours a day.  I don't like rednecks.  I'm indifferent to nature.  I speak English.  I speak "I graduated from an American public school" Spanish.  Socially speaking, I am extremely liberal.  Fiscally, I am a bit more moderate-conservative.  I have no real political affiliations.  I place great value on friends and socialization.
Actually, Midtown Atlanta isn't bad at all; it's young and vibrant, and a lot of clubs are pretty damn good. And if you don't go to the obviously fratty bars, you generally won't bump into "rednecks". And having lived there for four years, I can say that you'll bump into many, many people of your political stripe there. Not trying to sell you on the place--I moved back to NYC, after all--but it's not a giant trailer park, as you seem to think. But really, you're only about to enter college. You have four years to figure out where you want to live, and things change a lot during that time.

I was in college two and a half years ago and dropped out. I'm returning to college, not attending for the first time. Not that I don't anticipate some changes, but I'm not exactly some malleable child at this point.

I live in Columbus as well and plan on moving to Miami or Los Angeles in the next few years.

What are you looking for in your place of living? Is weather most important, if so, you've just eliminated about every state minus CA and FL.

Do you actually live in Columbus? Everyone on here who says they live in Columbus lives out in the country/cow-town in towns that aren't Columbus i.e. Westerville, Dublin, Gahanna, etc. Hence why life sucks. If you lived in Short North/Victorian Village/Italian Village, the neighborhood is a little slice of heaven. Tons of young kids, varying degrees "of hipsterness", tons of local galleries and shops to support. I can buy a pair of APC New Standards a block away from where I live..... tons of great locally owned restaurants, great happy hours, gallery hops. All for very low $$, and you can even get away with out having a car here. P.S. I grew up in Chicago and a lot of people living in the Short North are from Chicago originally. Lot's of advantage to living here IMO (granted Chicago is a beautiful city). Good luck trying to find a pair of APC jeans down the street in Chicago btw

I was born in columbus ohio. Raised in cleveland hieghts.. Dont remember much , I moved to atlanta around age 10. Cleveland was pretty industrial though, roads are shit.

Im thinking about moving too, when I get my degree finished. Though I probably have more to experience in atlanta, I have been here 20+ years and I want something different.

They closed down a lot of the clubs at buckhead. And it just seems , like someone else said, a bit dull these days. Im not really trying to say that atlanta is a dull place though..

I was thinking either LA california to pursue a career in the arts, or NYC.

People have told me that atlanta should be sufficient for pursuing a career in the arts, but Im just not seeing it now. But like I said, maybe I have more to experience here.

I havent been to buckhead since they closed down many of those bars. That was a few years ago I believe. And I havent had a girlfriend in a while. What Im basically saying is that I have yet to really really explore atlanta socially and culturally and artistically.

I still think all the action is in a state like LA or NYC though.

Atlanta isn't boring if you are hanging out in the right places. EAV is great. The Highlands can be fun. Crescent Ave in Midtown has some fun bar/clubs.
