Where To Live? How About, Where NOT To Live.

Trying to come up with a possible city for me to live, love, and work in has been a challenge. As I move on with my life and have hopes for my future, I sometimes sit and imagine where a good place would be to call home. At least for a few years, IF I decide to leave Las Vegas.

The other night, I met up with some of my favorite girlfriends. We discussed. This discussion turned into laughter. Uncontrollable laughter.

Why, you ask? Because.

Friend D: How about San Diego?
Friend G: Ewww.
Friend D: Whattt? Why not? It’s so pretty there.
Friend G: There’s a F*&%$#@ Zoo there! It’s known for its Zoo!!!

Friend D: Phoenix is hot, great city, I think you’d like it there.
Friend G: The airport is nice.
Friend M: It does have a great airport.
Friend D: It really does have a great airport.
Me: I should move there because the airport is great?

Friend D: Portland is beautiful.
Friend G: No.
Friend M: I don’t think so.
Friend D: Yeah, I guess, it is really granola there.

Me: I don’t think I’d like San Francisco.
Friend D: It’s high tech there and lots of style. Great culture.
Friend M: I don’t like it.
Friend G & M: Yeah, what are you gonna say, I go visit the seals every day? Great.

Me: Philadelphia, no thanks.
Friend G: They have great food there.
Friend D: Dude, no. They wear blazers on TV there.

Friend D: What about Dallas?
Me: I don’t think I’m a Dallas girl.
Friend M: I don’t see it.
Friend D: Yeah, it’s really southern.

Me: Orlando?
Friend D, M, and G: Make faces. Disney World.

Me: Houston?
All: Noooooo!

Me: Detroit? NO way.
Friend M: My friend owned a beautiful gorgeous home there, and she still couldn’t stomach it.
Friend G: 8 Mile. Eminem.

Friend D: Where else? What markets are in Connecticut?
Me: Hartford.
Friend M: No.
Friend G: “Hi, where do you live? Connecticut.” *makes face*

Friend G: Ohhh, Boston.
All: Ehhhhhh.

So, you get the point. It was a fun conversation. It’s interesting when you think about “where” you’ll fit in. What did we come up with for me?

Phoenix, LA, NYC, Chicago, Miami.  Our top 5 picks. We…  shall… see.  Sometimes where you want to live, and where you end up, don’t always match up.

Where, Oh… where.
