Nobody actually likes San Francisco. It is never more than a pricey stand-in for some other place preferred.
I woke up some minutes ago and found myself feverishly rethinking this. It feels like a cruel and unfair thing to say, now, albeit not an untrue one. There is something almost aristocratic about the particular unhappiness that pervades here. All this splendor and what do you do? You sigh.
One year into living here I realized that only a person from Ohio could think it’s cool to live here. Still into living here but only in the same way that I am into finishing an overly large meal at a steakhouse that all my friends say I can’t finish.
Look, the city is not for everyone. There are a lot of downsides. But I am so fucking tired of hearing yuppies whine about how they just can’t make it here any more. Go. Please. Quit whining and just go. God, stop talking about it and move. Jesus. You are boring the fuck out of me.
Try living in central Florida for 21 years and then tell me how much you hate San Francisco.
