Is the traffic as bad as they say? I always read 'Carmageddon', 'Carmapocalypse' and what not...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25071856


It's worse. Funny thing is "Carmageddon" there was no traffic. The freeways in that area were clear.

I visited up there several times and found it to be too crowed, superficial and too hilly.

I only time I force myself to go there is to take the kids to Disneyland or Universal Studios.

The traffic is horrendous.

Re: I fucking hate Los Angeles
I moved here from the south to LA about a while back. I live about 10 minutes away from Hollywood. Why do people like living in a polluted, expensive shithole? Never find parking, food is expensive crap. The people here think the world revolves around them yet they've never even left LA. It's like people live here and put up with all of this stuff just so they can say "I live in LA' and act like hotshots.

Side note, On my trip out here, I enjoyed Dallas the most. Dallas was pretty awesome.

Re: I fucking hate Los Angeles
Peter Gabriel is playing the Hollywood Bowl again tonight. I'm sure it's gonna be spectacular. They got a slightly overpriced open air restaurant where you can get a drink & some good chow during the opening acts. then grab a bottle of wine & watch some fantastic musicianship under the stars.

LA definitely has it's moments. But you should really plan your visits, schedule your road time for non peak hours & have an exit strategy.

Personally I like having it nearby to catch all the shows & clubbing out there was a blast when i was young & single. But I've never been interested in living in LA proper, too hectic.

You're exactly right. It does have its moments. Great for single life and partying (if you have the money). Long term, hell no. All it really consists of is driving.

Re: I fucking hate Los Angeles
Ever since I was a little girl, I watched music videos and "baywatch". I thought L.A. was like it would be like living in "paradise" so to speak! I started to constantly dream about living there one day, on the beach of course, and pursuing another life long goal I had of being a celebrity hairstylist!

The right time had finally came, so I left my job at a local salon (whom was like my 2nd family), I requested a 6 months "leave of absence", withdrew the 5,000 I had in savings, got the car tuned and headed out west. I was beyond excited to start the next chapterin my life which I had worked so hard toward accomplishing most of my 21 years of age at the time. I spent 8 years in that city and boy did I learn ALOT! Come to think I did ALOT of "CRAZY" things and had many unbelievable "good and bad" experiences.

I had NEVER been to California nor did I have any connections there. I also had no job or place to live lined up on purpose. I wanted to challenge my self and live "free" from ANYTHING that I felt was tying me down. I had never been outside of my "comfort zone" of support. One of the hardest things at first was not knowing "anyone" or where to go! I had barley even researched before I left!

I partied hard with the people from the shows I watched over the years and moved to Manhattan/Hermosa Beach. If only someone would have told me how awesome this little beach community would be sooner! I loved it! At first i didnt know where to go so I ended up in Hollyweird for a year and lived up on Sunset Blvd. LA was a huge dissapointment at first! The people in general were so different then what I was used to back home!

Most all... the guys I met were a bunch of DIRTBAG, COMPULSIVE LIERS who preyed on fresh new faces of naive, young women, aspiring to be a model/actresses. No one told me about "THE CASTING COUCH" and I barley avoided many "STICKY" situations at times not knowing who or what was to come "Next"! I made the mistake at getting a job serving drinks at one of the main strip clubs known in town, in hopes it would help me financially to stay afloat because "EVERYTHING" was so darn "EXPENSIVE"!!! I needed something to do while working toward my Cosmetology paperwork, state board exams and business licence to be complete, (which was required to legally cut hair in a different state).Plus, I knew at the rate things were going with the "scene" I fell into, that waitressing wasnt going to cut it! I was beginning to get requests for lap dances at the club and knew I could easily make 5 to 10 x's more money if I could just put my morals on hold for a bit! Not only 3 months later, I was working for THE BIGGEST and most popular Club in LAS VEgas making more money (every other weekend I would fly out there from LA) then I made in a whole month of working on my feet, ALL WEEK in the salon! I developed a gambling addiction on top of all the other crap that was going into my body! I couldnt dance without being in another place "mentally". I have NO IDEA how I even made it work since 90% of the time I was a "train wreak"!

Anyhow, finally after hitting what I thought was my "bottom" numerous times and coming face to face with death more then once, I met a good guy from back East. after I moved in with, seemed to be a good influence and Things started to straighen out for the better, just in time to get back on track and landed my "dream job" at a salon in Bevery Hills 1 block over from RODEO DRIVE!! This was my prime! While living at the beach! The commute SUCKED and the drivers were "CRAZY"! But IMO, I was goin to have to have some kind of "crap" to deal with for all the good I was experiencing too! After a couple years I decided the "clients" I was catering, were not very pleasent and pretty rude to deal with any longer. They think cuz they have unless money that their hair can do ANYTHING they want! This is just not the truth. Hair Texture and Color play important roles in the final outcome of design. I would explain to them in detail why it wouldnt work and that it would look horrible and they would not be happy with me or their hair and they would not take NO for an answer! At this point I knew better and would just refuse the service! They would then think I either didnt know how to DO the "style" they wanted, Ha, Or that I was just being lazy! Sometimes the consultations would run thru 3/4 of the appointment and then you got the clients waiting next complaining, and it creates a domino effect! I will tell you I am AMAZING and TALENTED at my profession and have been trained by "the best in the business"! (These women and some men) were the biggest SPOILED BRATS I had ever met! Expecting things and not appreaciating the little things in life! Cheapasses too! The whole learning experience taught me alot about people, and communication as well as about myself and who I am in reality. Many of them couldnt pay me enough to listen to all their "shit" AND do their hair at the same time! LOL Alot of entitlement and people wanting "freebies" cuz they think they ARE SOMEBODY WITH A NAME! Ridiculious!!!

Soon after turning 30, I was homesick and didnt feel challenged anymore! It is hard to explain but I felt as though I had "mastered" my ALL MAIN GOALS and DESIERS I had ever dreamt and I thought,... "Well, NOW WHAT? To be honest, in the past, I never thought about children and marraige before that time, because my carreer was my top priority! Therefore, I got pregnat and moved back closer to family and roots which was most important to me. Sorry for rambling but I just wanted to share! :) Thank You!

P.S. GO VISIT THE "SOUTH BAY" area in L.A. These are the cities of Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach! It is a fun area and different (more clean and up-scale) then Santa Monica or Venice! It's like a hidden little treasure with lots of nightlife and shops with great food! So much to do that it is hard to "Work" if you live there!
