Lately, I’ve seen a lot of videos pop up on YouTube with titles like, “Why I’m Leaving California.” Granted, after I watched the first one that came to my attention, YouTube made sure I would see many more. However, until recently, there were none and now there are a plethora. So what’s the reason?
The first one I watched gave insight from the perspective of a 29-year-old Asian female whose handle on YouTube is “Honey & Absinthe.” This young lady grew up and spent her entire life in the Los Angeles area, so her decision to leave wasn’t made easily. In her presentation, she outlined three areas she considered before deciding to pack up and leave: the cost of living, quality of life and opportunity.
