1. Thou shalt understand that cost of living is high.
And it is for a reason. Rent is steadily rising and the population is growing significantly higher every single day. More people equates to more demand. You better have a chunk of change ready to drop or your California dreams will indeed flop.
2. Thou shalt love the outdoors.
House parties, pools, beaches and brunches. Everything happens outdoors. Along with being a nature lover’s dream, we have the greatest year-round weather in the country, and we have a ton of fun soaking up the sun.
