I can see that New York is not going to give me the life I want and I don't have time to force the issue. Before it turns into another London, I have decided to look at places with a lower cost of living and a different lifestyle.
All the jobs that suit my mind are concentrated there. Some of you may know that I've been wanting to go since college, and others may remember that before I left London, it was very high on my list. I wish I'd gone waaaay before the elections though.
DC is not New York and it doesn't want to be, which really annoys the expat New Yorkers. It's more conservative in style and habit. I have never needed hipness or a vibe, whatever they mean.
It has the feel of a smaller town and is in fact more compact, less populous, a bit slower. A happy medium between Northeastern grit and Southern gentility, with the added bonus of colonial charm. There is a different energy, too. The energy of a population on a mission: highly educated people from every state in the union and every country in the world with national and international interests.
