Now don't get me wrong.
My heart belongs to California. In my opinion, you'll be hard pressed to find a more beautfiul state. Between the coast line, the mountains, the redwoods, and the wine country, it's just a really picturesque place to be. But i've been here my entire life (except for the 2 years spent in Atlanta) and i'm ready to move on. I've done the south. Don't care to do the mid-west. So there's no other place for me to go in the U.S besides NYC and I want to go NOW.
I visited last spring and instantly fell in love. The culture, the people, the vibe, Canal st knockoff purses (lol)...i love it. The food I could leave or take. I did love the egg rolls. Omg i've never in my life had a better egg roll. But other than that, I wasn't too terribly impressed with the cuisine. But that makes no difference to me, I wanna go. If I could drop everything and move now and not be homeless/jobless, i would be there tonight. Unfortunately life doesn't work like that so i'll be patient and wait for my gf and I to finish school, get all the degrees I need to get and make my way out there properly. Patience is a virtue.
