NC is pretty far off from the paradise, you know. I really would not say it is soo much better than MA.I just applied for a new job at my company. If I get it, I will need to relocate to NC when sh*t opens again. If it happens, I will probably keep my place in MA and wait to sell it.
I love NH. I love being in the middle of all the tech companies, universities and good hospitals in MA.
But f*** the North East. Taxes are retarded. I could get a 15% paycut, move south and live better.
