Grass is Greener ...

Tuesday, September 07, 2004
I've discovered I'm definitely a grass-is-greener type of guy.

So this week I'm back in NYC, the city I left to go back to California. It will mark the longest time I've been here since I moved out. I have to say that I'm pretty glad to be back.

I still have a lot of friends here that I really like being around but that isn't really it since I haven't seen any of them yet (altough I do have plans to see them all). I guess, like I have always said, New York is a great city to visit but a lousy place to live. I really do like most of the things the city has to offer but I hate the cost of living. I hate that to live by youself and get a tiny studio apartment cost you in the neighborhood of $2,000.

But for now I'm really happy to be back. I really like it here but then again I really wanted to be in California when I was here. Maybe I'm just like John Kerry and I'll have to flip-flop back and forth. (Yes I'm voting for him so don't get on me). Maybe Its just that every 4 or 5 years I need to trade coast until I miss the other one too much.

Yes! Vote Kerry. I love NYC. I agree w/ you and wouldn't want to live there day to day but what a great city to visit. I guess I love big cities. When I can travel I will go to SF, NYC, Chicago, NO, and SD. I'll stay in LV for the tax breaks and spend my time heading out to other places.

OR, you get a job where you make so much money that you have an apartment in BOTH cities. Clearly, this is the best answer to your woes. :)
