no, don't move to NY. Move somewhere not as hectic like Northern CA or the mountains of North Carolina. Don't move to this area. This area is no better than LA. In fact, it's worse, because it's super crappy cold weather in the winter. You have tropicals all year long. If you want, you can switch places with me, work part-time with my mom cleaning houses, and I'll live in LA and water plants all day.
