Yeah I lived in Pomona and had to drive to Irwindale and it’s supposed to be a 30 minute drive. With traffic it was an hour and a half. We left at 6:15 to avoid traffic. Traffic is 6:30-9:30 then 11-2 and then again 4-7. It’s nuts. But I love the heat so it’s difficult.

i feel like LA can be the best decision for some ppl but then the worst for others. honestly it depends what area you live in also I've been there several times and believe it or not I met a lot of nice people that worked there. personally i want to move there for my future job but to a nice area with people similar to me, not with all of the stuck up people. you just need to figure out what place is best for you, obviously if you dont know anyone there it probably won't be fun, so try to find some nice friends :)

I am from Vegas and I have lived in 6 states, one thing I can say about living in different cities in the US, in the future you will cherish your memories of California. You have perspective and a right to say why you don't like LA--because you made the leap! Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Life is an adventure and I am excited to hear about your new experiences. If they are positive, AWESOME! If they suck? You just make another decision. Carpe diem.

PLEASE - people of California, people of New York etc. - please stop supporting the Democrat Party. They are running our major cities and states into insolvency. They are not "liberal." They are not "progressive." They increase the cost of living and lower the standard of living. And PLEASE, if you're going to relocate to a Republican-run state (not that I think the Republican Party is the panacea, but at least their states are economically appealing and far more responsibly run), please have the humility enough for self-reflection, to assess the situation in full, and realize that if you continue to support the Democrat Party at your newly adopted (Republican) states, you're just contributing to the eventual downfall of that state too. Put aside ego and consider the situation truthfully with humility. What does this have to do with the video? EVERYTHING.

I went out to LA, I think it was a different city, I had a hard time finding a job there and I went to try working in the film industry, but that didn't work out so I came back to NYC, I am from NY, but i live in NJ now, which I really have found a job here so I did like seeing Rodeo Drive, and Beverly Hills is so like beautiful and I may never see things that expensive again. I like west wood.. so I guess nothing is ever perfect..

If it took you 2 hours to drive 10 miles then you did something wrong. I lived in Los Angeles 8 years. I never had issues finding parking, maybe because I circle around blocks and manifest my lot and I search for side streets and then I walk a bit. Never had issue with parking. During rush hour never go on the highway, dodge by using side streets. Gotta be street smart. Or just move close to work.

I was born & raised in L.A. I'm in my 50s now and moved away in my 40s. I watched the city change wildly over those 40 or so years. L.A is a city of immigrants, trust fund babies and transplants that seek fame & fortune. The most creative, talented & genius mine the city for it's ore of fame etc... The actual born natives are rare, reclusive, usually quite beautiful & actually the nicest people. A lot of transplants to L.A have your experience because they mostly mingle with other transplants and the majority of them are in L.A to gain some fame or fortune so the friendships tend to be faux and fleeting and based on how useful you may be in accomplishing their goals. Most natives are chill and very accepting of whatever you're about as long as it doesn't effect them. I left California with the intentions of returning in 6 months but, it didn't turn out that way. I miss my home but, I don't know if I'll ever be back and this saddens me greatly. It's a beautiful, flawed and expensive place full of creative souls that has changed so much in the 15 years that I've been gone that, I probably wouldn't fit in anyway. Still I miss home. Good luck to ya, where ever you end up and be happy for your experience in L.A. It's a magical place.
