I got an email saying this had a new reply and it's funny, since then, I have been to North Carolina. I stayed in Chapel Hill and go to visit Durham and Winston-Salem as well. I LOVED the Chapel Hill/Durham area. I didn't get to see Raleigh outside of the airport lol, so I can't comment on that.

I would love to live in that area though, but the job market seems pretty dismal.

I'm thinking about relocating as well. My options are, Pittsburgh, Boston, or St. Louis.
Austin would be perfect for me, except I want to establish my own place away from family, like my older cousins before me had done.

The job market in the Southwest isn't too bad. The film industry in Albuquerque is expanding, I don't know about other media though. Or if film is even classified as "media" However, an admin job at a college or university in this state will pay enough for you to pay rent, have a car, have a social life, etc. A friend of mine who's an admin at our university just bought a house (though it's far from what you'd call a dream house! Cute little place though).

I moved to new Mexico after I graduated from college, eager to start a new life in the sun. I sure got one. Now I own a home and have a good quality of life.

^^ That city is absolutely beautiful. It's certainly a place you should visit.
