I've only been here for ~10 years, but I definitely get a sense that people from the city prejudge you based on whether or not you are from the city.

As somebody who has lived here 42 years, most people aren't from here. There's no good reason to hold that against anybody.

yeah the amount of native SF people is very low

I mean, think of when the last time you've ever seen kids around in SF. it isn't a place to have a family, at least as of now

Yeah, now it is not a place to have a family. My parents were about to move into a huge house in SF near Sunset when I was born, but they decided not to. I kind of wish they did. Oh well.

I remember reading about this random news about how actress Eva Longoria sold her 5 bedroom estate in the Hollywood Hills for $1.4 mil late last year. Today I'm reading about these new 2 bed, 2 bath, 1200 sqft condos overlooking the GG bridge that sold for $2 mil a pop. Crazy

My family friend sold his Redwood Shores house for 1.5m back in 2009.

Want to know the thing that sucks. He was single and was getting up there in age and the house became a bit too much for him to handle. My dad recently told me that he was going to allow for my brother and I to move in and live there as long as we helped take care of it. Could be living there right now.

About the housing talk, I'm currently hanging with some relatives but I'm not looking forward to finding my own place in a few (hopefully) months time. Looks like I'll have to be looking near Campbell ish to find some half decent rent.

I'm here for a 2 or 3 year contract and then we'll probably move back up to the pacific northwest.

I want to move upwards, but I'm not sure how many design based jobs they'll have up there.

Campbell can get pretty expensive too. Pretty desirable in most areas of Campbell.

There's a place called Blossom Bee in Dublin about 10 minutes off of 680. You can order a green curry crepe there. Haunts my dreams.

I still enjoy parts of SF, but man it is so dependent on who you're with. I haven't been a fan of the city overall in years.

I've been there twice for breakfast crepes. Looks like next time I'm in the area I'll have to try that green curry crepe.

I was in SF yesterday in traffic and I missed LA so much. 😢

I hate SJ. I know that I would have to move in a year, because I just can't live in suburbia. 😩
