Sup faggots. When i graduate university next spring, i'll be looking at packing my bags and moving somewhere far away from home. Have any of you done it before? What's hard about it and what should I, as a good ole Canadian boy, be wary of?

So far i think i've narrowed it down to either Denver or Austin. Can anybody shed some light on these locations or offer any other advice?

Make sure you have enough money so that if you crash and burn in the job market you can still move back home or whatever. Denver and Austin are both great places to live from what I've heard.

Only if I either got offered a really good job in a city I liked, or had like 10k+ saved incase I couldn't find a job for few months.

Austin should be pretty awesome. How can you just go to the US if you feel like it though?

Don't you need a visa for long term stay and work permit?

...modes and scales are still useless.

Austin is the hipster capital of the world. You couldn't pay me to move there.

Denver is really nice. But I know the only reason you want to move there is because pot is legal. Don't think that you will get even a halfway decent job without being drug tested.


I suggest you stay in Canada. We really don't like canuks here and besides you sound like a douche.
#13
Yup I've done that and will be doing it again soon. Refreshing in a weird way but really make an effort to keep in touch with those you'll miss.

Everyone says these things about Austin, but I didn't really see it when I visited there. Maybe I need to be there longer, but it just seemed like a normal college town to me. I also was there during the winter, so that may have something to do with it. Still a cool place though.

You're gonna learn a lot about yourself, and it's gonna feel incredible. Starting over fresh is something that everyone should go through a few times.

A couple of my friends really want to go to Austin for some reason.

Texas that is. Austin, Indiana is a shit hole lol.

I have some strange, inexplicable desire to live in Seattle someday. So I guess I'm in the same boat as you. If for some reason right now someone said I could get a good, steady job in Seattle I'd move immediately.

Pacific northwest is a great area. My family up there refuses to live anywhere else.

It feels like Mt. Rainier is always watching everything you do though.

That's okay by me though, I think.

I just like the idea of having many different types of nature in a close proximity. Mountains, forests, the ocean, Canada.

I wanna pack up my bags and move from Norwich and Essex to a fresh start in Cambridge. That'd be proper nice. Very daunting moving somewhere with zero friends though and I'm only moving somewhere if I can get a job there.

Save a good 2-3k to get on your feet in the new town. You can always skimp on food in terms of ramen, but be sure to have basic living expenses down. If you're always dirty and couch surfing people tend you view you as a parasite and it's harder to be taken seriously. No that's not fair but it's how the world works

I've moved from Chicago to Miami and am about to move again to Seattle. No contacts, no nothing, just picked up and moved.

I like that kind of thing. You have to be honest with yourself about how much effort you're going to put into networking in your new hometown. If you are good at that kind of thing, you can be on your feet relatively quick. The people that take a while to 'adjust' to new cities are usually the ones that have a hard time building bridges or just simply don't put themselves out there enough.

Another thing to consider is not only how big the scene is in the new town, but how many musicians are battling for the 'good' gigs? In Miami the scene is not that great but there are so few musicians that we all make pretty good money.

Check a climate graph before you move anywhere. My parents didnt and i had to grow up in a sweaty ass shithole desert, which as a Canadian, I imagine you would find terrible and want to kill yourself betwix the heat and the a/c bills.

Just saying, think long-term man.

I packed up and moved from Canada to the Caribbean 12 years ago. Went back to Canada last month, just can't understand how people can live there, and it was summer. Traffic, mosquitoes anywhere up north, expensive as hell and nothing to do really, too politically correct and cops everywhere being dicks. For those who live in the UK, that sucks more, but at least you can always get to an ocean.

This is a good day at the seaside in the UK.

I love all the seaside spots in the UK. I lived in the IOW for a while, it's much sunnier there from what I remember, Brighton and Cornwall are cool too
#32
I live 20 miles from Brighton, we get 3 good weeks of sun a year. We just finished up this years batch.

First thing i did. I went looking for places to live in the south because i ****ing hate winter. That's one of the main reasons i want to leave lol, i don't belong in cold weather

I have dual citizenship so im not worried about all the paperwork and stuff. And yes, it's nice that ganj is legal in Colorado but that's a factor that's so far down the list it's negligible

went from a place where i was loved and had shit going for me to a totally new place where i unintentionally burned all of my bridges (outside of my now distant family) and haven't been able to recover mentally or create new ones

i may have worded that in a melodramatic fashion or whatever but yeah, it's been a rough time :-0

I did that a couple years ago, first few weeks just felt odd since I didn't know the area or anyone out here. After finding a job and making new friends it's turned out pretty nice.
#38
I have done it before and the hardest thing is being far away from friends and family. On the other hand I had a great time and met a lot of good people. I also had a place to crash which gave me time to find a job. If I were you I would have a plan before just packing up and leaving.
