The streets I know will never take me anywhere but here

Previously on Adam Riff™:

2005:
I decided to leave Los Angeles and move to either Seattle or Chicago. I chose Chicago. My mother asked a fortune teller to assess my future. "You're best-suited to live in the northwest – Seattle, Oregon, Vancouver."

2013a:
I work in Manhattan, but sleep every night on a couch in someone's living room.

2013b:
—Going forward, where do you want to live, Jon? You've been very accommodating to me, relocating to the east coast and whatnot, and so I will accommodate you wherever you wish to live.


Ever since we converted his apartment into a home office, my boss has been gently trying to kick me out.

—Do you want to live in Brooklyn? I don't know if you want to return to the Bay Area…

I want, more than anything, to live in the Pacific time zone, but I just don't think it's practical.


The median selling price of a house in Detroit right now is $13,556.

I'd like to live in a house, and I wouldn't have to worry about finding a job, and…casinos, but I'm terrified of driving in snow.


Tony: if you want to come check it out, let me know and you can stay at my place

Every few months, I dally with moving to Seattle, and every few months, Tony offers a place to stay.

I turn 31 in two weeks. Maybe it's time. What's that quote from Inception? "Do you want to become an old man, filled with regret?"

Chris: you know it snows every 2 or 3 years here
Chris: and the hills make it terrifying to drive in

[pause]

[looks at houses in Oregon]


Devil Jon: Seattle? Oregon? You turn 31 in two weeks. Do you want to become a cold man, filled with regret?
Jon: Where, then? San Diego? Seal Beach? Back to Los Angeles?

I've dallied with moving back to Los Angeles, but I'm terrified of parking in Southern California.

    Parking is not that bad! You're scarred from Westwood

    Dude – you've been dwelling on this for a decade. a decade! shoot the puck and get on with living life.

    also, get snow tires, if necessary.

    Move to Seattle. You can always move again, right? Just based on my reading of this site over the years.
