It sounds like it. I hope the trips are at least somewhat entertaining for you.

As long as my seams stay stitched, I'll consider it a blessing. :D

It's good training for the future, if it involves frequent travel.

Hancock Park.

My friend Jim is going to USC to finish his undergrad, and we need a safe place close to the school.

See the return trip post . . .

Basically, it's right on top of Koreatown. They wanted 1st month's rent of 1595/mo plus a security deposit that was around a total of 2700 or so. However, you won't find all the jazz we got, plus 12x12 bedrooms, like this, most other places. It's a perfect starter place, secure to boot.

You're really moving to LA??? What's in LA (besides sun, beaches, and leather people)?

Holy hell, goodbye, snow belt.

Best of luck with that. Don't let all the traveling and stress wear you out. A hot Chai at the Detroit airport Starbucks is always nice (then, when you're really sleep-deprived, you can ride through the disco tunnel).

Hahaha!

I love Chai.

I was told that Chai is just another language's word for 'tea,' if I'm not mistaken.

Work and school and another best friend of ours is in LA.

Heidi will try to follow after more of her debts are paid.

Whee!

It's a calculated risk.

I will move there with a good friend of many years. We've known each other and have been friends since grade school. We have another close friend of ours who lives there, and so we will not be completely without any other support for the first few weeks and months.

Also, we are devout cannibals. We only eat vegans and pork-product gluttons of over 400 lbs. We like the mix of delicacies. :D

well, the pickin's are pretty good in Frisco for the vegans, but i dont think anyone there weighs more than 140 lbs... you might have to drive to Vegas every once and a while.

The Fat of the Land!

The Fat of the Land!

We will live off the Fat of the Land!

Roll them dice, blow on them twice!

We will settle for vegans!

Good luck on your move man. By the way, why so many back-and-forths?

One to LA and back to secure the apartment (done now), the Syracuse one is in debate with Heidi, another to LA and back (receive movers, unpack and setup), and then the final one to LA to begin.

The 2nd return trip is due only because my mom wishes me here for my birthday in mid-January, but I wouldn't mind a combo Xmas-Bday 'see-ya' party if that's the case.

Do it with people you know.

It's almost impossible, unless your family or you are rizzich beyond belief, to start in a big city all by yourself.

The number of things I learned with the help of Jim's parents in the apartment process was very benefitial to Jim and I.

The amount of money to move somewhere . . . deposits, 1st months' rent, is not to do when you're broke, like me.

If it wasn't for Jim, I wouldn't be able to do this. Hats off to Jim and his parents for helping me.

Good luck out there. Detroit is alright but I hate the cold. Hope the move goes well. Do you have a job lined up yet?

Not yet.

It's hard to tell them where you live when that doesn't become official until Jan 1st.

Once we begin setup in LA when the movers get there, we'll hook up the cable connection and do a router for our cable internet. This will allow for the mad apps as well as an angle with Heidi's uncle, who has good words about one of his stores in Hancock Park.
