I went to California for DECA nationals last year and it seemed like a pretty chill place. Now it's time for me to decide what college I want to go to and I'd kind of like to go to UCLA. I live on the east coast so I'd be pretty far from home and everything but it won't cost me anything more cause the military will be paying for my college anyways. I could stay here and close to my friends and go to WVU, but I heard high school friends pretty much grow apart in college. But the positive aspect of this is i'd only be an hour and a half away from home. So anyone who lives in Cali, does it get old after a while? I just want to make sure the only reason I liked it is from getting such a small taste of it. It really seemed like it had a good music scene too. Sunset strip was pretty cool when I went.

SHORTENED VERSION: Would it be worth it to go to UCLA even though it's far away for me?

California has some nice girls but a proper education is much more important. Move to mongolia.

That was actually my second option.

Every place has it's pros and cons, Cali included.

Pros: idk
Cons: lots of douchebags, too much sun, high cost of living, smog, wildfires, famine and pestilence


Sounds like a good deal.

Yeah I like living here, I've been to other states, but I like Cali the best.

California's hot, bankrupt, and full of Mexicans.

Come to Florida! It's hot, not bankrupt, and full of Cubans!

California will be taken over by the pacific ocean eventually, so good luck!

Oh f*ck it,
I'm gonna have a party.
I had the blankest year,
I watched life turn into a TV show.
It was totally weird.

It's definitely not as impressive as people make it out to be. But I only visited.
Move to Germany instead, and go to Heidelberg University!

No, it sucks.

But, yeah, probably the best state in America. Simply for how diverse it is, any part of the state (minus Bakersfield, Redding, Fresno) is gonna be a relatively nice area.

You have the deserts, the beaches, the metropolitan cities, the forests, the mountains, the lakes and rivers, the different climates, different people.....

Just wondering...How many animals did your dad get killed by?
First a spitting cobra...now a mongolian eagle?

If everything goes as planned I'll be stationed in Germany when I go active. That will more than likely not happen though. I'm just hoping for somewhere in Europe. I want to travel as much as possible before I get old.

it's okay.

get's way too hot in the summer too, and it's kind of overrated.

it's cool, kinda. just like any other state, the weather along the coast is really nice, but if you don't have millions of $$$ like the rest of us, the weather inland blows. it's basically the desert.

but overall, California has a lot to do, and you'll never get bored if you know what you're looking for, and compared to the rest of the US, we get the best concerts.

Watch out for the famine right.


Yes California is a great state. You honestly can go surfing and snowboarding is the same day. The community college OCC is the number one rated school in the country for hottest women. You won't get bored here with the right people.

I lived in Los Angeles for awhile.

I definately hated it growing up there, but I realize if you're just visiting, it's top five coolest cities in the country.
#37
btw instead of UCLA, you should go to UC Santa Cruz. Probably the best city in California.

except you're doing the military thing, and UCSC doesn't have an rotc program, so it'll be really expensive.
