    Depends on what you do for a living I suppose. Yeah for $800 its a really nice neighborhood and plenty of sq footage. I'm pretty pissed about losing it but the one thing I don't like is that it takes like thirty minutes to get home on the bus and an hour on the streetcar.

    Plus $1,000 is really really cheap for the Quarter. A tiny studio on Decatur is $800 generally.

    Mods I just got off the phone with @Bane's

    He said hes very sorry about what he did and regrets it deeply. He wants to come back to post some good lulz with his good buds. I think we should give him another shot, I trust him.

    How does SD cost of living stack up to Chicago?

    Speaking for myself, 18 months is a long time when it comes to putting up with commuting.
    Funny, my wife and I were just talking about rent prices in the area. We live in a small city, 35K pop. give or take. A room in a 4-bedroom downtown is $600-700 for nothing special. It's crazy. Rentals are really hard to come by around here, now. Note this 6-700 is this small place is in comparison to a major US city. (This is not for our accommodation, but for some of her employees, just to be clear).

    We pay far more than you for a 2 bedroom 2-story condo in downtown (well duh I hear you saying), but again, wee little city in a wee little province in Canuckistan. The west coast is far far worse, but I think everyone knows that. I thought our area wasn't as bad.

    What about cane toads? Aren't they the worse scourge of them all?

    Man, people sure know how to fuck up a good thing.

    If you're comparing rentals good neighborhoods in the city of Chicago with the average in San Diego... it's about the same. Chicago suburbs are cheaper rent wise overall. One bedroom in a good area in Chicago is $1300-1600 a month... which is about what it is in SD unless you get close to the beach, then it gets well over $2000.

    The price of housing is actually fairly similar here... the catch is, the house you spend a half a million dollars on here is half the size. The plus side though, is that property taxes are lot less than the Chicago area.

    Seattle is actually more expensive than San Diego at this point.

    Me and the gf have a great deal for a single-family one bedroom house (900 sq ft) we rent in central SD... $1640 a month. We're going to be buying a house in 1-1.5 years. Chances are we're going to be spending $475,000 to $500,000 on a single family home that is several miles away from the beach.

    It's like $1200-$1300 for anything that's been built in the last 15 years. And even then it's like 250 sq ft at best.

    I'm half tempted to find an extended stay hotel/motel to stay at for the first 2-3 months and wait for all the college kids to start leaving and take over those leases.

    I'll probably hate my neighbors and the noise they make but it probably will be less expensive.

    Also, hopefully I get interviewed for one of the other 2 jobs of the 3 I applied for.

    1 I am being interviewed for pays like 24.84 an hour to be a Muni Court Clerk. I applied to be the supervisor/administrator for King County District Court which pays like $70k a year starting (hail mary application essentially) and then a Pierce County clerk job that pays like $25.78 but for $1100 a month I could get a 650sq ft studio with in unit W/D and only be like 2-3 block walk from work.

    Yeah, they are - litrully - my favorite urban animal. I used to feed them at my old apartment. They'd just waddle right up and take their snacks.

    Ah, the animal whisperer back at it again. I don't believe you, I bet the possums would arch their backs at you and snarl.
