Harbortown, I have two words for you: PALM TREES! I love you
Blah!

I don't even like palm trees! They look pretty in the pictures but up front they're ugly!

Haha, I know you hate them, that's why I had to throw that in. Razz I do love palm trees though and we don't really have many of them in VA. They are in no way ugly! Evil or Very Mad
I wish you could make a quick visit through Santa Barbara while I'm there, that would be so cool.

Hey, enjoy your evergreens and oak trees! They're beautiful!

That would be so awesome! I'm hoping to make it out to CA next summer, but it's doubtful that I'll have the time or the money. Grr!

I'll enjoy the trees here and you can hug a palm tree for me when you get back to Santa Barbara. Wink

This is where I go to school and where I live most of the year:

Oakland, California!





(Not my photos because ... I don't have many, if any at all, photos that I took of the town.)

this thread would be better if we all posted personal pictures instead of just posting pics from google.

just sayin'

If this is the case, I feel that most people might not be able to do their hometown/city justice.

Damn, dude.

I mean I could stay another year but I don't really know what education I want to get myself (This was more like a year off to take random classes and have fun) and I don't want to stack up on too many student loans. That's a real shame.

If I show one of the streets I live by, it's not so pretty. Razz

Haha, the same goes for my neighborhood in Santa Barbara. It's kinda shabby.

Yeah. I'm over in East Oakland -- not the greatest place in the world, but it works out.

Yup, same here. My roommate had his bike stolen a few months ago, one that he built himself and was very fond of. Shit happens in those parts for sure.

Yeah, definitely. It's unfortunate, but what can you do but be cautious?

Indeed.

Still, I love living there because my roommates are fucking awesome, and the busstops going downtown and to school are literally right outside the house. I could also walk in either direction in 10 minutes if I wanted to. Great location!

Yeah, that's one thing I like about Oakland -- it's just a bus ride/BART train away from San Francisco and a quick bus ride to a lot of museums, libraries, book stores, record shops, music venues. It's nice to live in a place with all that after living in a farm town for 18 years.

Bay Area Rapid Tranist. It's like a subway in San Francisco and Oakland.

I'll have to check rasputin out, ever since borders closed it's been hard to come by cd stores round the hood, other than amoeba.

Rasputin has a good collection of cheap used CDs...and they are all good quality.

I haven't. I usually go to the one in Berkeley since it's closer.
