    PRO: you'll get to explore new places and try new things, beautiful weather, beaches, nice/friendly people, clean air

    CON: hassle of moving, inflated cost of living, isolated, lack of live music, you'll be far away from friends/family

    DOOO IT

    It's actually a little liberating living thousands of miles from the Lower 48. Once you get over the fact that there are never any good shows, ever. That said, it's almost certainly better in Hawaii than here, concert-wise. Not to mention the weather.

    Yeah, listen to her.

    Honolulu is awesome. It looks like a paradise to me (even McDonalds is heavenly cool there. I would only eat at McDonald's again if I come back to Hawaii lol naaaah, I'm serious).

    GO!

    Seriously, what are the cons here? It's really really expensive to move to/live in Hawaii, isn't it? If you have an opportunity that they'd pay for the move I'd say do it! How old are you? Where do you live now? What is the job?

    i have a friend who moved out there and landed a teaching job within a few weeks of being out there. She's been absolutely loving it and the few times she has come back to visit, she has had nothing but great things to say about it. She also came back with a new outlook on life and discovered a ton of new things she probably would've never been exposed to here in New York. It's been a few years already and I think she is starting to get the bug to come back to NY though...more so because I think she misses her family. I dont think it hurts that she landed an incredible 2 bedroom apartment a block from the beach that was subletted for very cheap.
    I am going to get so blown to Cypress Hill while they play.

    If you love high gas and utility prices and angry white-hating Hawaiians, go for it.

    If they're willing to give you a salary differential to offset the higher cost of living, you'd be crazy to not go. Not many people get the opportunity to live in Hawaii, even if it is temporary.

    Seriously, beautiful weather, clear serene water, clean beaches, friendly people, clear sweet smelling air, fresh pineapples....I'd do it in a nano second.

    It depends on what kind of a person you are. I could never live there because of the following reasons...

    1) I am not much of an island person from the weather to the people.
    2) There is absolutely nothing to do, which I don't mind while on VACATION.
    3) If you thought gas and utility costs were high in California, brace yourself.
    4) I would be too close to my grilfriend's family. (see island people on #1)

    That sounds like Bishop, where I grew up. In the middle of the mountains, and a tourist town to boot, so it's extremely expensive. When we go to Hawaii, the groceries are cheaper than at home. It's a marvel.

    Just beware of temporary moves that become permanent. When I moved to California from Ohio, I was only going to stay here for a year. That was in 1995.

    i have family over there that complain about the traffic... but that's usually all. one of my friends was forced to move back to the mainland due to the cost of living, so if you have a good paying job then it should be ok.

    I lived on the island of Oahu for 4 years and I would recommend it if you are willing to change your current lifestyle. You will have to learn to love the island life. Meaning, love beaches, snorkeling, fishing, and surfing. Take advantage of all that Hawaii has to offer while you are there. Otherwise, you will get homesick and dread your time there. The locals are cool, as long as you don't act like a fish out of water. Recognize that it is their island and you are just visiting.

    That's true. Get used to driving about 20 mph slower on the freeways than out here. Plus, for some reason there is an abundance of shitty drivers out there.

    That's true about the traffic. If you move here, for god's sake don't live west of town. And for that matter, if you can afford it, don't live east of town either -- just live in town itself.

    I can't speak to the quality, but there's definitely a higher visibility level than on the mainland.

    It's ok. You're on island time. There's no rush. You're not going very far.

    Also bonus: you won't get a heart attack at age 35.

    That's funny. I think I spent the first six months there reprogramming my road rage. It took me a while before I learned to say fuck it, and cruise.

    I <3 Honolulu drivers. They always let you in if you're trying to merge, they eat saimin with chopsticks while driving, and will pull over and ask if you need help putting on your spare tire. And no one ever honks. I even caught myself giving someone a shaka the other day for letting me change lanes in front of them.
