seattle holds a strong attraction for me too.  my sister-in-law lives there, and she absolutely loves it.  i applied for a job at UW-Seattle, but haven't heard back from them yet, so i'm keeping my fingers crossed... :)

i think moving to seattle sounds like a great plan, and you sounds really thought out... kick ass. :)

If you are any type of liberal, then this is the place to be.  My girlfriend and I movedo ut here because the midwest just didn't have the opportunities we wanted.  Sure, we loved the small communities and the quaint countryside, but you get plenty of that here, with mountains, beaches and forests.

A couple we knew already lived out here, so adjusting wasn't too bad.  As it turns out, a couple of my friends from my hometown came out here as well (one goes to law school at UW--Postfem, UW is a fantastic school if a little crowded and a little preppy from time to time--another is in a band that is starting to break out by getting play on KEXP), so it only added to my friends circle.  The people here are really laid back, and other than being the worst drivers I've ever seen (worse than NC, worse than Ohio, worse than Indiana), I haven't found anything to complain about.

bluewilco, you are a new friend. Feel free to unleash all the good and bad about the city. I'm trying to learn as much as possible beforehand. When I do move out there, I'll buy you a beer!!

As for work, that's good info to know. That's why I'm glad I'm taking nearly a year to move, so I have plenty of time to job-hunt. As for Starbucks, not only will I never step foot in one, I'll beg on the streets and offer hand-jobs for change before I'll ever work at a Starbucks!

You'll be hearing from me often in the future.

THANX!!!

I don't believe it. I can't believe it. I refuse to believe it.
