I'm a southern California native who just moved to upstate NY. I'm still in the process of getting acclimated to this thing they call "seasons". And from what I've seen and felt...it's overrated. I've recently experienced snow falling from the sky for the first time. And I know that might sound somewhat uneventful, it was actually a monumental moment for me. [and i never knew that rain and snow could fall from the sky at the same time].
Overall I guess this place isn't too bad, i.e. no lines at the DMV [and they're open on Saturdays] rent is mad cheap, and I get time to spend with the fambam. But there's a downside as well: there's absolutley nothing to do out here but kick rocks or go to little social gatherings like pumpkin fest [wtf] or whatever other fests they have to promote unity...but i'm going to give this place a chance [well I'm really trying to][really really trying to].
Well this is where it starts. Me trying to write down a few experiences, a few thoughts...maybe bring a little westcoast to the east.
