|2 places I want to go||1 place I've been|
so im looking to move here from orlando florida.my best friend lives there in downtown on monroe.he only has good things to say about the place after a year of living there.but i want to make sure that hes not just trying to get me up there.im from dc lived there my whole life and am used to the city environment as well as southern environments.any pro’s and con’s would be great.with jobs, cost of living,music scene,schools,etc.thanks.over 4 years ago
so i moved here from dc about 4-5 years ago.what i expected and what i recieved were 3 different things.all in all if your down for a bunch of frat dudes and mindless conversations then this place is for you.if your expecting parks…gotta drive about an hour(depening on traffic) to get there,pay about 75$ for a tix and then pay for parking and over priced food and drinks.as for downtown orlando,its a nice place to go hangout if your new to the area and are loaded.very seldom will you find a bar with decent drink specials, or youll find an all you can drink bar with horrible music and a horrible scene.
i live right next to ucf,and if i could suggest,ucf is one of the worst schools in the nation.they keep increasing fees on students,they make you take classes completely irrelavent to your major, and the education is the 3rd worst in the country.
food is meh.TONS of fast food places and TONS of tourists.if your here to visit thats cool.if your looking to move here then i warn you.alot of fake people,alot of bs,alot of crime,alot of idiocracy,and cost of living is horrible if you can even find a job.
theres more people then jobs,which leaves people that are going to school with out jobs.here a BA is the new HS diploma.if your ok with the fact that you’ll be broke as hell after you leave or in total if you move here, then go for it.but if your strapped for cash then this place will only suck you into crime and later on major disappointment.if you have any questions let me know ill be more than happy to give you more details.over 4 years ago
