Well, this certainly makes me feel like a dick. It's like all of my posts defending you have pretty much blown up in my face. Sure, you never asked for me to stick up for you nor do you really give a shit if I do one way or the other, but to sit here and rag on the only person in the COR that has ever tried to make you seem like a decent person? Eat shit, dude.
Not once, in the last four or five months that I've been planning this move, have you ever said, "Good luck!" or "I'm happy for you!". All you've ever done is criticize the location and tried to tell me that it's a stupid decision, that I'll end up stuck there and hating it. Do you even know why I'm moving?
First and foremost, love. I don't expect you to even come close to comprehending this concept, as the closest you've ever come to being in a romantic relationship with a girl was when you were eight years-old and playing a game of doctor with your friend. Second, is music. I'm bored beyond tears with the scene here. Sure, Atlanta isn't as burgeoning as Los Angeles or New York, but there's a market for it and I fully intend to take advantage of it by throwing my own shows and pushing something new there that seems like it will take off. Third, is money. I have the potential to make a tremendous amount of money with this new position, and living in Atlanta is dirt fucking cheap. We're looking at very, very nice lofts that are double the size of the apartment I was living in here and they're half the price of what I was paying when I was living downtown. Why wouldn't I want to live somewhere where I can make a fuckload of money, start throwing successful shows and be with the person I love? Hell, it's even a temporary move; a couple of years there and then it's off to either Brooklyn or Los Angeles.
In addition, the PNW isn't the be-all, end-all of beauty. Sure, I have a lot of local pride; I love this place and I'll probably end up settling back here. But I think it's a whole load of bullshit for you to write off most places for living, especially when you have pretty much kept yourself sheltered in this state. Yeah, you've been to Vancouver and San Francisco, but your knowledge of everywhere else is pretty much, well... nonexistant, since you've never really been anywhere. But, this is just par for the course for you; like our conversation about music the other night, you're just making assumptions without having the experience to back it up. Have you been to Atlanta? No. Have I? Yes, and I can safely say that there are tremendously beautiful wooded areas surrounding the city. No mountains or any of that, but plenty of beauty to go around.
I don't give a shit if you don't understand that, but could you at least be a decent fucking friend and respect my choice instead of giving me shit for it? You do the same fucking thing to Adam all of the damn time. I know that I'm on the same page as you regarding many of his choices, but at least I'm not an asshole to his face about it to the extent that you are. I try to be as polite and as supportive as possible of everything he has chosen to do, because I know that it makes him happy. Sure, I might think that Danielle is a cunt and that he's fucking crazy for having a kid, but I know that at the end of the day, he's happy, and I'm going to be a good friend and support him. I guarantee you that Adam feels the same way about this as I do.
Point is, dude, you can either respect the fact that your friends do stuff to make themselves happier, or you can just shut the fuck up.
