Now that my future is wide open again, I am looking to figure out where I want to live again. I spent a lot of time thinking about it in the past, but now I want to take a more systematic approach. I just ordered a large laminated wall map of the US. I'm going to be marking it up based on the following criteria:
Average Summer High Temperature
Average Winter High Temperature
Average Yearly Snowfall
Cities with Universities and Community Colleges
Once I have that, I'll make a list of cities and start doing a bit of research. I'll look at nearby airports, nearby expressways, nearby parks and gardens, average housing cost, average age of the population, social climate, and such.
The map will be in tomorrow, and I look forward to working on this. I hope to move by summer.
