Okay so I have this dilemma.

Right now, I'm absolutely positive that I want to move away from Iowa. It's not that I don't like it (well, I. I just. I have complex feelings about it, basically.) it's just - I need to be somewhere else for a while. If I don't, and I end up spending the rest of my life here because I didn't get off my ass and go somewhere I'm gonna hate myself.

My problem is, I have no idea where I want to go. My dream place would be London, but uh I am not a MAGICIAN and am in fact a POOR YOUNG PERSON WITH NO HIGHLY SPECIFIC QUALIFICATIONS so that's pretty much a pipe dream, unless I get into a grad school over there or something. Which, LOL yeah let's dream a little bigger.

I know I'd like a somewhat mild climate (Iowan winters, ugh, I'm so done) and lots of culture, and reliable public transit so I hopefully wouldn't have to fuck around with a car, but other than that I've got nothin'. So I'm asking all you fine people, if you're so inclined, to talk at me for a bit about the area where you live.

What would you tell someone who wanted to move there, basically? Pros and cons? Invitations to crash on your couch? (lol I'd be careful with that one I am fairly sure that nobody wants to see my cranky ass in their living room first thing in the morning) Would you tell someone to live where you live? Or do you absolutely loathe it and want to preemptively warn me away? I'm hungry, babies. Feed me.

(If you're uncomfortable talking about where you live in a public post, I'd be more than happy to screen your comments, just let me know.)

Ugh, I almost wish I was one of those Midwestern people that dream about moving to NYC or something. At least then I'd have a goal. All I know right now is that I don't wanna be here. Where I'd like to be is the hard part.
