It was only when I arrived in Vegas did I appreciate just how stressful California actually is, contrary to the brochures. You can only be relaxed if you have the wherewithal to cloister in a safe neighborhood, otherwise...

I spent 7 years in California. I thought because of the poverty, it was stressful. I didnt appreciate that the place itself is extremely stressful. By the time I left, I was an angry mess - not trustful of anyone, feeling out of place. Even when I was doing ok financially - I was still stressed. Before I got to LA, I would wonder why the place was so prone to riots, historically speaking. After living there for several long months, I can attest to a bubbling, seething level of ... hatred... caused by class divisions, racial tensions and historical grudges. No wonder the place goes up in flames periodically.

No wonder I had to get out of there.
