    Does anyone on the forum not really like Atlanta?

    I have been here for about 5 months and I am ready to move. I am looking to move to California or abroad.

    Atlanta is just not all that special as people make it seem to be, I guess I should have come through in the 90's.

    If anyone has the hookup with moving to California let me know!!!! :horse:

    Your experience...

    I've always been interested in ATL, can you tell me more about your experience, why you seem disappointed? What were your expectations when moving there and what have you met with?

    I do not like here because it lacks Beaches Phynx. I like to surf and the black mecca thing is cute and all, but this place is dry.

    Greetings,

    Hey bro just a word of advice stay away from Klanifornia. I visit then I jet like a 757 after a couple of days. Your best move is to go abroad or stay in the Black mecca. Yea Klanifornia has beaches and descent climate but that is all it has to offer. If you can put up with the Hoewood (hollywood) mentality (especially in southern klanifornia) then you would do good in Klanifornia. Keep your family in a Black environment. (note: it is Black for now but will not be for long). Most of our people look at the videos and hear the music (Snoop etc) and think Long Beach, South central, etc is Black no it is now inhabited by the new white sub-groups/ buffer groups / puppets (hispanics and also asians) in this racial pecking order and they are eager to prove their loyalty to white america (WASP and Zionists) who allow them into this country. Stay in the Black mecca. I know it is dry but what would you rather have: a dry stale piece of bread (Atlanta) or a dry turd (Klanifornia)?

    yes, water is a necessity

    Yeah, that was the first concern i had, that kept me from making a major move. A few years ago, I read there was a water shortage, and when I looked at the google map, there didn't seem to be a decent body of water, and even though Alberta's dry it seems to have better rivers and rainfall.

    You're always welcome to come to the coast of Canada! Montreal is an island, with plenty of Caribs and other Black varieties... speaking French will come in time. Or there's British Columbia, not the population of Black folks but lots and lots of water! Oh, wait, too darn cold to surf. :qqb013:

    I like Atlanta...

    when we go thru there we usually stop on MLK BLVD and hang out....

    many people from here (RI) have moved down that way...

    the cost of living is cheaper..... but I understand becasue if your a beach person...... you do miss it!!

    we have beautiful beaches here and there is nothing better then the sunset without all the big ole buildings covering it from the city.....

    I feel you... but there are many opportunities in ATL it, but compared to being able to watch the sunset... and fish.. and swim in the ocean... I can see why there is no comparison...

    not much of a surfer but we be getting our boogie board and water slide on.........

    I liKe California......... LA was faaaaaaaasssssttttttttt everyone wan go to Hollywood.... but the Palm Trees in Riverside were so amazing!!!!!! It was quite beautiful......... wanted to stay out there... it's just HUGE so if you go out there be well prepared... the cost of living is high but they pay more ... everyone down there thinks big and has big dreams and is very superficial.. so if your the type of person that can deal with that there are some beautiful places......

    going abroad I can't offer any opinion on that....... why this option.....?

    I feel your sentiments but I just came from North California a few months ago and it was not that bad.

    I want to move to California because I work in the IT field. They're are better economic hustles for me in California than Atlanta. In addition to the beaches. :qqb011:

    Bro. MANASIAC, I feel your pain about Atlanta...as I sit right in the middle of it.

    Atlanta is not for everyone. In fact, it wasn't right for me either when I first came here. I moved to Atlanta in 1999, stay for 6 months- cursed it out, and then moved back to Fla. I realized there was still something in this place that was calling out to me, I couldn't figure out what it was- so I had to move back to find out. I moved back in 2001, I've been here since. If IT is your field, when I was going to school for IT the instructors were always telling us Atlanta was going to hit a big boom in that field coming up in 2009-10. It appears as more developers/programming companies make Buckhead and downtown their home, other companies would follow suit.

    But that's just hearsay, I don't know. I gave up IT and stuck with graphic arts/web design. Not that the money making potential is much different, for me personally I have more control over my work as a freelancer, but I still do upgrades from time to time. I had some friends who left here and headed over to Silicon Valley-so I understand the feelings towards Atlanta, my Queen shares the same sentiments sometimes.

    What keeps me active here is that I am involved in several different business ventures with very brilliant Black people. I enjoy that element wherever I might find it. I've been fortunate to build a good network of people I can service and vice versa. Mind you I moved here without knowing a soul. But I know our spirit, and usually that's all we need to survive. Follow your instincts, if your inner self is pushing you towards Kali, then go.

    Greetings,

    Oh yea, plenty of computer and technology gigs in cali but like I said if you can put up with all the hoewood (Hollywood) Southern Klanifornia vanity you will be alright. If someone is in to computers, acting, porn, modeling then Southern Klanifornia is the place. Another thing if you already have a Queen that is a plus too. The dating scene is difficult especially if you aint pushing a Benz.
