Moved to Silicon Valley for a job. My salary is 30%
higher! I have stock options! The temperature outside is
65F in winter! California is the best place on earth!!!
Still looking for an apartment. Freeways everywhere to
take you places. Still love California!
Found a 1 bedroom apartment for $1900/mo. California is
more expensive than I thought.
Gas hit $2.29/gal. Somebody stole the gas from my car.
A small earthquake! And this is what my mother was so
worried about? Almost didn't feel it.
A forest fire and a mud slide near LA. Who cares, that is
far away from me!
A big earthquake...Spent 4 hours in my bathtub. Boy, that
was scary. We had no stinking earthquakes where I came
Drought! They turn on the water once a day. This sucks
big time! Somebody stole the water from my car's radiator.
Why did I come to California?
Decided to buy a house. Found a 2-bedroom fixer- upper for
$800K. Borrowed against my stock options for down payment.
Freeway traffic is worse. Today it took nearly two hours.
My startup fired 90% of the work force, including me.
The stock lost 98% of its value. My options are underwater.
Had to sell my house. Couldn't make the payments. Found a
studio apartment for $2300/mo. Traffic unbearable
Problems with electricity. They turn the electricity off
several times a day. It's called "rolling blackouts." Who
stole my car battery, and what do I do now?
I'm typing this, stuck in an elevator, in complete darkness.
The battery of my laptop is dying. Silicon Valley is no more.
Angry hordes of former dot-commers are looting in the dark.
It was fun while it lasted. I'm coming back home.
