I want to move to SoCal! I absolutely love it out there- it's so surreal and peaceful (out by the beaches) and there is so much to do! How about you guys?

I lived in Southern California - Hermosa Beach, in fact, from July 1992-March 1994. I loved it, but I was not really a beach person. Also, when I lived out there, I was broken hearted over a girl I knew in upstate NY who dumped me 6 months before I moved out to LA. I always longed to be with her. However, I also missed the seasons and rain. After I lost my job, I returned to upstate NY where I had lived for 11 years (1981-1992) and remained there from 1994-2011.
If I had not been hung-up on my ex-GF and trying to get a PhD back at my old college in upstate NY, I would have remained in LA and might not have lost my job. Of course, even unemployment in LA couldn't even cover my rent, so I had to move no matter what. The cost of living in Los Angeles was just way too high.2
