nah, I got in to rick, ann d etc but for the most part I ever just bought really normie shit cause the more out there things never appealed to me personally
other than my wardrobe being mostly black I dress pretty normie, which works for me, I don't really wanna be noticed
thought just recently some girl told me I look like a fasion designer, don't know what to make of it really but I take it, most designers dress pretty down to earth and simple

that is a 3 bedroom shack, not an 8 bedroom villa and you can get a lot more than a trailer in a trailer park for ~500k usd in socal. no you wouldnt be living like a king, but be realistic.

>> No.12727123

Thanks anon, this is just one of them, those 8 bedroom villas are about the same price as a 3 bedroom home in a decent area in the Bay. If you look for houses in cheaper areas in Spain and Croatia around the Adriatic it's even better prices

>those 8 bedroom villas are about the same price as a 3 bedroom home in a decent area in the Bay. If you look for houses in cheaper areas in Spain and Croatia around the Adriatic it's even better prices
that is probably very accurate. i just thought the trailer park/8 bed villa was a bit of an exaggeration, but i see your point regardless.
the area i live in is no where near as expensive as socal, so i am fortunate in that regard. that being said an italian villa is a lot more appealing lmao

this is good advice.
i went to school with a guy who went all in and bought a house basically sight unseen (visited the area for about 3 weeks) and ended up having to sell for several reasons - not knowing the language was more frustrating than he though, no proximity to shopping/grocery stores/the women were less appealing than initially perceived/crime rate was sky high/housing properties in the surrounding areas were tanking.

its easy to look at places and fantasize (im guilty of it too) but there is a lot of important shit that is easy to not take into consideration.

To be honest, I have a few backup locations I plan to move to if I burn bridges here
1) Reno. Cost of living is low, low humidity (that's important to me), ~3 hours from the bay, big forest close by for /out/ing
2) suburban Chicago, particularly Schaumburg+ Arlington Heights+ Elk Grove: know the area well, Chicago is fun, it's a nice area
3) either upper peninsula or Green Bay: /out/ shit and not too big

In a decade you'll have met a grill and will be living in America, somewhere in the burbs

Point taken, but I know my mom always wanted to move to Italy too and there's nothing else I want than to have her come and stay with me and enjoy herself here. This is partly my goal so I can invite my family to come stay with me on vacations and take them around everywhere. For you anon I would move to Reno, really beautiful area that's near lake Tahoe too
