Working at Starbucks you might as well be unemployed. Don’t do it. Apply to any other coffee place. Unless you need health insurance, then I guess go ahead and work at Starbucks. And la isn’t so bad…. It’s just… Big.
I’m casting a wide net, applying to anyplace really. And I don’t have a problem with how large LA is (well, I think it is impractical because of water resource issues and I also hate it’s urban, or rather, suburban form), I can see myself doing well in actual cities like Chicago, NYC, and Toronto. At least in those places I wouldn’t need a car.
