I hear the cost of living is miserable out there. Plus, it's way too sunny. I was there for a weekend and got quite depressed by it.
Sort of weird. My productivity goes through the roof (work, school, home - it doesn't mater) when it's overcast, raining, or snowing. I must be kin to Gollum. I'd do just fine in Washington state.
Yeah, Washington's fantastic that way.
If I ever moved to another state, it'd be Washington, for that very reason.
I'm just like simple, that sort of weather energizes me.
As for the topic, I can't say much about Colorado that you don't already know really. Its comparable to anywhere else in the country.
If you look hard enough, you will find a job, for sure, there's always retail and labor stuff available. (Its harder if you're a teenager, and in that sense I sympathize with Ryan. I had the same problems at that age that he's having now, and that was 7 or 8 years ago.) But will you nail a job that pays what you need and utilizes your skills? That's a tougher question.
I know that's really broad, but its the truth.
In any case, there's a lot to love about Colorado besides work related stuff, so I'd hope to see you come here anyway.
Hell, we're pretty close to maybe being able to organize a Denver Racketboy Meetup!
That's right, only Sega had the skill to make a proper Nintendo game.
