Who doesn’t California give a fuck about?
Thats right you!
I wrote before about all the loyalty we show to the state, that it never reciprocates—I’m not sure y’all got the message. You see, I left. I bounced. I kicked rocks. I’m trying to get others to see the light.
My gripe is with the over-priced homes, you may never attain. You thought paying $3200 for an apartment was bad. What about when you want to own?
Lets take a look at
the bullshit what California has to offer:
The cheapest house is in a neighborhood that’s still in the middle of gentrification. Get it while it’s hot, this whole city will soon only be for the rich.
I spent a big chunk of my life here. All my life it was the place the rest of the Bay Area would shit on. Treated it like the worst city in the state. Now all the hipsters are flocking here. Driving up rent. Driving up housing cost. Making it like the rest of the Bay—unaffordable. Paying over half a million dollars for 1200 square feet of house!
Some call it the last affordable city in California. That title will be gone really, really soon.
The main reason most people outside of the state think California is a big vacation. Then they move, and become homeless. L.A. isn’t far from it’s Northern neighbors in price. $300,000 house still sit in bad neighborhoods. But… the California dream, and comfortable thought of laying on beaches keep people in financial jail.
It would be irresponsible of me to show you the problem, and not give you,
All positives here. It’s the very next state over. That kills your, “what about my friends and family” argument. Very, affordable place, with a lot to do. And hell nah, I’m not talking about gambling. If you do it right, you can take your California money and buy a house, out-right. Cash!
We’re getting a little further I know, but you only get one life. Do you want to continue to slowly financially drown? Same thing as Vegas. Very affordable. And you are not far from home base.
This place is arguably more affordable than Texas. Plus live a little. New Orleans is on a upswing, be apart of something.
Oh I know what you think. Exactly what the mainstream media told you to think. And that’s ok. I like that, this place is a big secret. The major comeback is on for this place, and by the time the media
hands you your next opinion tells you it’s ok to be here, it’ll be far too late. You could literally take two or three pay checks and buy a house cash!! Put it this way, Detroit is the reason I’ll never move back to my native state.
And then there’s this:
The problem is, like most Humans, Californians hate change. Most won’t move. They’ll just continue to take the abuse, because, well it’s all they know. People get comfortable. Convenient excuses like, family or friends are thrown at the proverbial wall, in hopes it will stick. But one day it won’t, and it’ll be too late.
This post is dedicated to those who want out. Those who see the bullshit and are tired of it.
If you don’t like the chapter in life you’re in, turn the page and start a new one. If you’re still not feeling where you are, close that book and pick up another!
