Not uh

Attention Los Angelinos: It’s time to move. I would NEVER make that much and still be considered working poor. You people are so crazy!! But I guess that’s what it costs to get to see “Brad and Jen” at the local Starbucks or whatever.

    I’m glad I left California for this very reason. My condo is huge and fabulous. Out here, it goes for about $30k. In San Diego (where I used to live), it would go for an easy $250k. Fucking ridiculous.

    And LA? LA sucks. Most native CA kids hate LA. It’s the bane of California’s existance, as everyone thinks LA when they hear California. And LA is overrun with fucking idiot waitresses and waiters who are hoping they’ll be serving up a kosher sammich to the guy who is gonna give them their next big break.

    We’re open to suggestions on where to go, albeit not from my wife’s mother who wants us on their block in a godforsaken suburb.

    Entropy keeps us in a large rent-controlled apartment in West LA. In the ten years we’re in it, we’ve accumulated a ton of crap, a big dog, and two kids. Simultaneously, the local elementary school got quite good just in time for our kids t matriculate.

    We’re prisoners. Our kids will say “dude.” We’ve never seen Brad and Jen, anywhere, but we’ve played with some celeb offspring at the local playground.

    I am shocked at the lower costs of living (and higher also) elsewhere. In places like LA, San Diego, New York City…it seems to make sense to have housing and such cost more. More people want to live there.

    Can someone explain to me why I can’t get a 4 bedroom home with 2.5 bathrooms in a decent neighborhood for less than $350,000 in MICHIGAN for the love of Christ?

    What is here? I do not get it. We’re all tied to the automotive industry but it appears if you are in the design and advertising branch of the industry you get shit all over.

    Add to that a wife who put her career on hold to raise children….we’re living pretty darn similarly to the Basurto family…except with Massive Debt to smooth out the edges and make it easier on us.

    I’m totally depressed now. And it snows and it’s cold and I live near Detroit and it’s about to get hot and humid and nasty. I must leave the internet now…I’m dragging it down into my black hole of depression.

    ***And yes, I am thankful we do have a job and I am thankful for what we have. Blah blah blah***

    Science is no longer the quintessence of knowledge and of what is worth knowing, but a way. It is a way of addressing and penetrating into unexplored and unmasked realms. by
