    Aaaargh!!!! Sorry, once a teacher, always a teacher... you know.
    And unfortunately, when "threw" and "through" are both legitimate words, spell check is of little use. Sorry to be nit-picky about spelling. Darn homonyms!

    Radio or Disneyland both pay next to nothing. Stay home my boy. The cost of living is extremely high. You'll need a cosigner for a glass of water!

    Re: Should I move?

    Like everyone else is saying, i say do it only if your parents are going to help out.

    i'm a full time college kid in long beach and i need a job. i'm considering dl, in fact, considering i am so close. BUT, the only reason that i can do that is because CalGrant is covering my tuition and my parents are paying the rent (I'm not a spoiled little brat, i sware!!). i'm sharing a two bedroom apartment for $1500 with one roomie. now i know there are other apartments out there, but trust me, THEY ARE NOT THAT CHEAP!! i researched for a long time before moving and your average one bedroom around long beach is around $700. if you can find a place that's cheap and doesn't have body outlines and mysterious stains on the floor, power to you!!

    so yeah...move here, go to school, make sure you have parental help, get an AP, and get a job somewhere else. better allover plan.

    I'll take you at your word, but I'll tell you that you would be hard-pressed to get such a townhome in any of Ventura County's coastal communities, and I'm sure that prices are higher in the OC...

    Thumbs up Re: Should I move?

    I'd say go for it.

    12 years ago, I quit a well paying job in the mid-west, sold my car and furniture, and moved to the first/second highest rent market in the United States(San Francisco) with only 7 boxes, a small black cat and NO job.

    I DID have 2 roommates and my share of the rent was $400. I found I could make it on Temp and other min. wage jobs, until I found something more stable

    12 yrs later, I have a creative WELL paying job in an interesting field. It was VERY VERY rough for while, but...I stuck it out and am now very happy.

    Life is a gamble, you can ALWAYS move home if it doesn't work out.

    Re: Should I move?

    Thanks, for all the feedback. This should help me make my decision. I am fully aware of the risks involved in moving 1000 miles away to get a job in a place I have only known in times of leaser. I also know the only thing riskier is a career in radio. Thanks very much for all your advice.

    Re: Should I move?

    As an alternative, I would suggest enrolling in your local community college and applying for the Disney College Program at WDW. Before you disgregard the idea...

    - Yes, it's likely you'll end up selling turkey legs all day, but consider this: WDW interns *get a place to live*.

    - Yes, they take money from your meager paycheck for housing, but it sure beats paying close to a thousand per month for a place with bars on the windows and grafitti on the walls.

    - Yes, you'll have room mates, but as already mentioned quite often, this would be a necessity if you went to live in OC.

    In my book, the housing Disney offers their interns is the best thing going. No matter how crazy the environment might be, no matter how much you might hate your room mates, no matter how remote and confining it might feel, in these days of outrageous housing costs, it's still much, much better than paying high rent to live in an apartment complex where criminals live or want to make you a victim.

    My son is a college senior and he's so tired of his room mates bailing without paying rent, he is considering applying for the Disney College program mostly because it's a job that comes with a place to live. He also needs some resume fodder and working for the Walt Disney Company isn't bad, even if you did sell turkey legs.

    Re: Should I move?

    If you're going to make a jump like this, it's easier when you're young. My boyfriend and I left Montana with our last paychecks, one car, and one U-Haul trailer, California-bound. We had a place to stay (his sister's place) for a while, and we have had roommates for a lot of the time.

    We're here, and it's wonderful, but I doubt I could do it now. If this is a jump you want to make, there's no time like the present.

    Forget being a cast member. Get a job as one of the office workers behind Disneyland. You'll make money, won't have to deal with tourists and still get in free to the park whenever you want. Best of all you can work your way up in the company and have an actual career.
