im from texas and love my state but i think it's time i split. i need to leave my house. i've been going to school full time and working part time. im almost done w an associates degree but i really don't want to be here (at the parents house). im sick of the same old routines. i've heard so many stories about how hard and expensive the living is over there. are all the horror stories really that true? i think the pay is somewhat proportional to living here in texas. im 22 and ready to make a change in my life. any advice would be great.

it might not happen me moving but it's a dream that i don't see why it couldn't happen. just don't want it to end up a nightmare. i have no family out there and no friends. but im willing to start all over with that. thanks again guys!

i thought you were joining the military, maybe i am confusing you with someone else :hmmm:

i left that state many years ago...cost of living, taxes, laws/regulations, crime and over population...no way in hell would i move there intentionally :headshake

edit...not all of Calif is like that, just most of it.

It's way awesome here. I would suggest only moving if you're confident in securing a job though. Rent is indeed steep. I moved down here from Minnesota about 6 months ago and haven't looked back. I was under the impression that everyone here would be superficial....not so. In fact, people are much cooler here than up north. As far as trouble goes, it's like everywhere else - you have to be looking for it to find it. There are some great areas around here. Only specific spots around LA you wanna stay out of.
Plus lane-splitting is legal :cool: and lots of fun.

one thing i do miss is you can pretty much go 2 hours in any direction and hit the beach , mountains , desert and valley. you should like it if you like earth quakes, mudslides , fires and anything else mother nature throws at it. lol where abouts are you thinking? that would make a difference as well

well you'll never know unless you try......your young and it dont sound like you have any kids, so why not. If you can't make it your parents can't be that bad to not let you back in.....can they?

Do you want to be old somewhere saying " damn, i shoulda....." Live life to the fulliest, my pops passed at 57 and thats young, he had so many things he wanted to get done and never did.....I look at life completely different now and if I wasnt settled down i dont know where I would be...:) But i did get a bike, something I have always wanted....

Well the way i look at it is you can always move out, you can't always live with your parents, without being a loser..

Stay home til 22 or 23 , til you have a degree, then move out.

Why not use ever up in life you have during education?

The less time your spending on earning rent the more time you have for education , and being young.

Well just thought I say my experience. I was actually on the other way around in the situation (moving to Tx from L.A.). I mean its kinda koo to visit n all but I didnt really like that Tx is to calm compared to the City of Angels. I dont know if its just me that im used to all the different things you can do here that i cant over there but i just didnt like it.

My parents have property in Tx n NM n i didnt wanna go cuz its just not home. I mean here in Cali (L.A.) we got everything, we got the girls, we got the weather, and we got beaches all over the damn place...lol

n like 350gt said u wont know till u try. bottom life is u dont wanna be with the "wat if...." for the rest of your life. so just try it n go from there. you know?
