And it's really Hell. What a boring city. What awful people. I eat so much Haagen Daz just to keep my spirits up that I'm now terminally diabetic.

I'm not kidding: this is really a f.....-up place. And now I'm as f......-up as it is.

Dont believe what you see in the tourist brochures: it's all hype.Stay home. Go to Disneyland or watch afternoon TV on your holidays. If you must travel, go somewhere nice like Calcutta or Bosnia. Don't come here, or you may end up like me, living here for years, trying to teach English to humor-less computer science students.

Thank you for listening to me, but no pity, please.

As you wish, no sympathy. But you said nothing about commiseration! Columbus is a real snore, too. I feel for you, there.

I also just wanted to say I love your user name. You get that from "The Tick"?

to be perfectly honest, i got it from the remnants of my deteriorated mind. i'm not even sure what it means. apocalypse bull would have been more logical, since i'm a male, but it just doesn't rhyme as well.

columbus oh? (or should i say oh, columbus?)

anyway, just tell yourself that it could always be worse.

it's an idiot's rationalization, but it works.

Their language certainly is.

Ah, and to think they made me take French to learn to appreciate other cultures... Now I hate it.

Don't listen to the pooh-poohers. Paris is great. Where else in the world can you find so many hotels that are happy to charge by the hour?

And here's a question to anyone who's been there... (and why it's so great): what do you find so many of down the Rue St. Denis at any time of the day?

Sorry, folks, but you've got to try New York for the place to be. You can do anything and everything you want to here. Truly a wondrous state, and excellant city.
/me prepares to be flogged for his potentially near-sighted views. But this place is great. Where I live is a bit boring, but I'm 1/2 hour from the city (and when a New Yorker says the city - there's only one place he/she means, even from the farthest corner of the world).
The city that never sleeps is like the Internet - if you want to do something at 3:45 in the morning, you can. There will likely be a (nearby) deli open for food of sorts, and all sorts of interesting places.

Tell me about it. I spent last summer in Boulder and inspite of all the white-washed yuppy wannabe hippies I am desperate to go back. Either there or to Seattle.

Never been to Paris, but Strasbourg was quite lovely. As was London. And NYC. And Copenhagen. But not enthralling. I'm not much of a city person. I'm much happier where the mountains are.
Quito, however, was a real pit. An infected pimple on the beautiful face of Ecuador.

The only time I was without mountains was when I spent a year in Dayton one summer, and another year in Indiana during the winter.

I don't think I would want to live someplace where I can't even see a mountain or two. I thought of living on the US east coast, once, but it wouldn't be the same.

I think I could handle Washington state, if it's on/near the seashore, but I couldn't live where I can't see the horizon.

Maybe I'm just spoiled by sunsets?

Sorry to hear about that. I don't live in France, but I do live in Canada. BC, so I'm as far as you can get from Quebec. And man, am I glad about that. Everyone is forced to learn French here in school until Grade 8. Bad language. Baaaaaaad language. I took it to get into a university after high school, and I'm just managing to get by.

I wonder if I should show my French teacher this thread...

Hey, AC, lighten up!

If you're unhappy where you are, you won't be happy somewhere else.

[rant]
Don't give me this "there's nothing to do and nowhere to go" crap! Look around, there's plenty to do ANYWHERE. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and get involved with something outside yourself. Open up to new experiences, new vistas! Open up to LIFE!

I say this, not just to AC. This goes out to everyone who complains about their surroundings/location/situation. If you're bored, do something to occupy yourself. If you're lonely, initiate conversation--who knows, you might find a friend.

Remeber, no matter what the circumstance, you'll remain in the same spot until you get uncomfortable enough to move out of it.

It's called "change."

It's also called "life."

Hey, Lifetime Trekker,

Thanks for the input (no irony intended here) but I'm sure that you understand that one way of staying light is by venting the accumulated darkness (real or perceived injustices, etc., etc.). Even though we're all veritable Buddhas, some of us forget our essential Buddha-nature from time to time.

Sure, Paris is not such a bad place as cities go: it's just that after having spent all of my life in them (Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles and now here) it sometimes simply gets too much. In comparison, there's no way I would go back to New York without basic amenities such as a chauffered limo, helipad, personal oxygen supply and so on. I guess that I've just gotten to the point where I crave chlorophyll, unapocalyptic cows and unstressed people.

If I posted here, it was for multiple reasons - some conscious and some less so.
What's for sure is that I enjoyed reading the responses - and in particular following the amazing series of links in Quantumfluff's "And some people have a really bad attitude" message.

If you like or love where you're living that's just great - and I suppose that that's the way life should be. Unfortunately, life's not always 'the way it should be', and we find ourself out of sych with our jobs, our bosses, our wives or girlfriends, our dogs... whatever. C'est la vie, and like you say, it's life.

As far as change goes, I generally don't have a problem with it. And change never ceases, whether I do or don't have problems with it. In nature, change is frequently preceded by a lack of harmony or balance, and sometimes can be cataclysmic. It's the same in our lives: sometimes we begin growling before we actually get up and do something about the source of irritation. In retrospect, I think that's part of what impelled me to post here, as well as the desire to see the feedback.

Communicating with you and others here is already 'doing something' as you put it. I should also add that I didn't indend for my message to exude a sense of feeling sorry for myself, since to be truthful, I'm not. Like most of us here, I belong to the less-than-one-percent of the world's population which in general has nothing more to worry about other than making it through life in the most interesting and amusing way possible - rather than worrying about how to make it through life, period.

I could go on like this for a few pages more, but most anyone here could do the same, so why insist...

Take care, one and all, and as Betty once told Dupree, let's see what tomorrow brings...

Aside from Lifetrekker's comment's their is also another thing to remember, we're not from their. The places that we've never been will always facinate us, and we'll continue to bring back "tales from the road" like the one an old man toldme once about his experience in Paris years back. It was the bastille, and the streets were so clogged no one could drive, so he sat down at the only table left in a small outdoor cafe. When a man in mere rags walked up and began playing the French National Anthum, and it was appearntly the most bueatifull music the man heard... He was about to offer the many some money for the great music, but the waiter caught him, and told him that the violinist was the Concert Master of Paris Philharmonic Orchestra, and that it was a tradition that he play the National Anthum in the street. Had he given the man the money, he'd have severly insulted him.

Yeah, I guess a place with wall-to-wall hookers and where the chief conductor of the French national orchestra turns up in rags playing the violin in the streets can't be all bad...

'Xanathine', I think I might need your input on this, since I haven't been to said place in a while:

Why don't you try Ocean Shores, Trekker? Whenever I went there (the little that I can recall), I always had fun. The sun is absolutely beautiful when it rises there, and DUH...it's by the seashore.

I think Ocean Shores in in Oregon, but the Washington coast is very nice. Wetter than wet, but very nice. He might like living along the Sound too. It's got shores, sunsets, and the Cascades are much more reliably visible than the Olympics (one winter the Olympics were so covered clouds so much I forgot they even existed until one day when the sun came out...very good thin no one else was on the road as I hit the brakes and started gawking).

The Oregon coast is great. As is the coast in Northern California. Got some great rocks to screw around on too.

Ocean Shores is in Washington and easily reached from the state's major metropolitan area in a few short hours. It's right on Pacific Ocean at the entrance to a large bay called Gray's Harbor.

Friends of my parents have a place at Ocean Shores and they love it.

I agree with Xanthine's assessment of her home state and the coasts of Oregon and Northern California. If I was to move south it would definitely be to a coastal location. I currently live 4 blocks from the water

I'd love to move out of this city, I like the state, but I don't like this city, but saying that you'll remain in the same place untill you get uncomfortable there isn't exactly true, some of us don't have much of a choice where we have to live. as for 'finding something to occupy yourself' well, for me, the kinds of things I would go out and do either can't be done here because there's no place to do them, or my parents won't allow(such as table-top RPG's). As for just initiating conversations, with the people in this area, it's not exactly that easy. I start conversations sometimes, but it leads to one of two things 9 times out of 10. The first thing is the person get's pissed off for any number of various reasons, second is that I find that I couldn't stand to talk to the person for more than 5 minutes without attempting to beat either them or myself unconcious with whatever blunt object I can find.....just me 2 cents

I did one of those semester abroad things in college in Paris. I too found it a difficult city to relax and hang out in. Of course I've never really figured out how to meet people when you don't know anyone in a big city. Parisians are just about the same as New Yorkers. They don't like people who can't speak their language/culture.

In the biology classes I took at the university I ended up trading editing of lab reports for editing English assignments. That was a great deal for all of us.

On the other hand, I'd still give a lot to be able to return there for a couple of weeks. There are so many things that I miss.

Hey Apocalypse, if you don't like where you are, why don't you just mooooOOOOOoooove?

(HA! I crack me up.)
:slaps knee:

Seriously, I live in Houston, and it's a great metropolitan city with much to do. It's just too dang hot to really enjoy this place much. I'm eager to get out just because I want to see other places.

I was in Japan for 10 days last year, and I didn't want to leave, although I didn't know much Japanese. That is the ultimate geek haven -- high technology, great food, and high intelligence as the norm. It should be considered as a Mecca for every geek. Every geek should venture to Japan at least once in his/her lifetime.

(I'm tempted to go teach English there when I get my bachelor's degree.)

Wow, I'm sorry. Paris really is a wretched hive of scum and villany. And it's dirty. And everyone speaks french. I hate french. And /THE/ french. But on the bright side, there's nothing like an authentic ham and cheese crepe. If you haven't tried one, you should. Really man, very sorry.

i'm amazed that so many people hate the place they are in. i have lived in lots of different places, and i have loved all of them. there's always something special about anywhere you are, you just have to find it.

i don't know if being from europe gives me a different outlook, but a lot of americans seem to get distressed because [I] not everywhere is like the usa[I]

relax, open your minds, and you'll find excitement and wonder everywhere you look. just remember, the world is beautiful place
