    this might be an option in the east coast and, to a lesser extent, the midwest, but in the west and southwest everything is so spread apart that you either live in a shitfuck asshole off the interstate or a maj-metpol'n city

    Meh, I don't think so. I lived in Athens before moving to this island. Yes, I was younger but I loved it. I can't stand this place.

    what did you do?
    I have a mechanical engineering degree, and this job required one, but it wasn't really engineering work. Mostly dealing with bureaucracy, pencil pushing and record-keeping. A lot of responsibility for not a lot of money or recognition.

    It's always fun seeing who your replacement is, I found out who mine was at my old job. I'm not sure she'd fit into the team and the vibe is from my old boss that he finds it hard to get on with her
    I don't know who the guy is, he started the same day I was fired. I'm assuming that the work will grind him down quickly enough - if not, then he is a better candidate than me. I don't get any extra compensation but was given a 2-week notice and told to fuck off. Once my employment is "actually" over I'll be looking at unemployment benefits if I'm eligible. Just gonna drink through this week and then start making finding another job my job. Will have to ditch the apartment probably and move in with my parents again, unless some opportunity comes up quickly.

    There is something about New York that would make me consider putting up with living there. Not sure what, maybe the way it's been portrayed in pop culture. I'm not in finance or an "aspiring entertainer", so there are no real benefits to living there besides saying you live there.

    "How to make it in america" the TV show really put me onto NYC as a potential destination

    I've always loved SF but it's just getting absurdly expensive now

    I agree with cheese. It may be expensive as fuck but I dunno, if I had the chance I'd definitely move there despite the difficulties and shit. It's complicated as fuck to immigrate to the US tho, so that's that.
