Hi people, My name is Tawanda Tendashe...but people call me TEE.I'm trying to find the most effective and effortless way to make the move from Texas to California as smooth as possible.I sing,write and act....I kno that my current destination is not exactly the "hot-spot" for ambitions such as I have.I am single,23....have two years of college in Communication and Broadcasting, no children and a world of potential.I would greatly appreciate any information on accomodation.(even a single room),Performance spots and on the spot job opportunity in and around the LA, Longbeach area.I am adept to adoptation, well-mannered and open to anything that can eventually lead me into the direction I feel I should be in.....coz Texas aint working for me! Thanx Oh....the cheaper the better because I dont have a lot of money,can house tend as well

Do you have any money saved? Please don't move here unless you do, and I'm talking about several thousand dollars, not just several hundred! Also, it's not possible to recommend where you should live until you actually have a job. Due to the traffic issues common to L.A., you should always live as close as possible to where you work.

You can check out Craig's List for apartments and roommates, but keep these things in mind:

1. If an apartment is cheap, there is usually a reason.
2. One street can be ghetto; the next street can be okay.
3. Make sure you have enough money saved to be able to leave L.A. should it become necessary to escape.

Welcome to City-Data.

you will need at least $10,000 to live here semi-comfortably for around 6 months, and that's if you find an aparment for under $1000.
