That's because they're illiterate ,like the poster here, who "defiantly" seeks a better climate. Perhaps he/she meant "definitely?" Perhaps they should develop some salable skills before moving to another state?

This forum shows how old people who post here are, if you ever talk to younger California residents they say "Cali" all the time. Some of you sound like angry geezers.

Are people in Philadelphia who say "Philly" illiterate?

Cali sounds moronic, like a wannabe hipster.

If Cali is fine, then why not Fornia?

As in, "Suggestions for 21 y/o movin to FORNIA!"

Exactly. Real questions.

The OP is 21 so they probably think 5K is quite a bit of money, it isn't.

Some younger Californians, the key is some. The ones who do are typically those who follow in an Alpha's shadow and or are desperate to be cool, especially younger white Californians who are often a tad bid jealous of their minority friends when it comes to the cool dept and are always desperately trying to keep up.
Tragically, they just look pathetic and sad.

Im looking to move out to cali early summer. I would like to get input of which area would best fit me (ive never been out west)

I wish to find an apartment to share with some college kids, where i could bike most places! I also defiantly desire beauty such as hiking trails, nice parks, amazing landscapes and CLOSE TO THE BEACH Nice nitelife a plus as well

An area with descent jobs is also on my list. I have quite a bit of money saved and so on so im not to worried about finding a job as soon as i get there. I will be completing my associates degree in liberal arts (dont hate)
(I am also looking into park ranger internships/careers)

ive read countless threads about the type of areas, and san diego sounds like a nice place and expensive. However for some reason, San Luis Obispo calls my name. Seems like a nice place to start off.

appreciate it guys
What you say you want would easily require you to have a pretty good job, I'd guesstimate somewhere in the neighborhood of 35k to 45k annually. I've never been to California, but I can tell you that beach front property or even rentals near any beach tend to be significantly higher in most places. You would also need to figure out moving costs. It's not just throwing all your things in a car and driving out there. Can you afford to fly? Do you have money for a security deposit and first and last months rent? What about utilities like gas and electric. Transportation is also quite important. A car is a pretty necessary thing in most places you could live in, in the U.S. From your post it doesn't sound like you have a job lined up. You do realize California has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country (12.7%). Do you have any skills? Will you be attending school?

If I were you I'd check out a few real estate sites to see what the rentals are like. I'd also check out sites like craigslist to see who may be looking for room-mates.

How much money do you have saved? You would be surprised how quickly you could burn through 20,000.

Is it really that serious? Hipsters tend to be the people who get upset over things like this. "Hey man it's San Francisco not frisco" "Hey man, it's CaliFORNIA, Cali is on Colombia". Hipsters think their opinions mean more than they really do and that somehow they are the REAL people. They disgust me.

Quite judgmental considering you're pre judging a large demographic based on your own personal issues with the name. There is nothing more annoying than holier than thou elitists that feel the need to be a language nazi. Is something else going on in your life where something so trivial bothers you this much.

Young people do stupid things all the time. I know, because I was one of those young people doing stupid things.

You must not be young because I notice you didn't use the spelling geezer's for the plural. That's the newer hip way of making plurals, by adding an apostrophe-s. And here's the new hip math: (Q) What's the sum of 24 and 32? (A) How should I know? I don't have my calculator with me. Just a second, I'll tweet it.

Only morons call California Cali. Educated people know that Cali is a city in the South American nation of Colombia. Old people can even spell Colombia correctly.
