New Beginning

I am a recent college grad. I am from Maine, and I have lived here all my life. I have always wanted to move to CA even though I have never been. I just need something new, and I think now is the perfect time. I just don't know where to begin!

Britt...have you moved to CA yet? I also hope to move to CA, probably somewhere around L.A but never been farther west than New Mexico. I love the dry environment. I'm a young 61, but ready to start my life over...again. :/ Friend me and keep in touch if you'd like to exchange notes. At this point i'm investigating Irvine, supposedly a master-planned city.

I can understand your feelings of wanderlust and excitement...... but unless you have a great job (and no student loans to pay off), it is so hyper-expensive to live in SF or LA. Northern S.D. Country isn't bad, but if you have to drive in to San Diego or Orange County to work, the gas prices and highway congestion are horrible on the best days.

That said, do your research on the internet...see if you can do some job interviews via Skype or online, and keep reaching out for your dream. Good luck!!!
