    Just got back home from atlanta I love it there its soo amazing. Ive decided that if I do move to atlanta I want to live in buckhead in a condo. But the only thing I didnt like about atlanta is that theres alot of homeless ppl and they kept asking me for money. I couldnt get into my car without this guy knocking on my window about money..

    But anyways overall ive really had a great time going with my close friends going to the lenox mall going into tiffanys,gucci,versace buying up everything. When I was at the mall Ive recieve a total of 6 numbers from guys/females at the end I threw them away cause not only thete not my type but I dont want to be in a relationship I like being by myself.. Well if u live in atlanta in the buckhead area can u please tell me is it worth moving from miami to atlanta...


    Thanks icon_smile.gif

    I live in the Atlanta area. The homeless people aren't everywhere, it depends where you go. Like any big city, there is a decent amount of crime, but there are some nice areas and some bad areas. Buckhead is cool and I thought about moving there, but I would rather be right in the city. I am moving to midtown in September. In my opinion, midtown around Piedmont park is the nicest and safest area in Atlanta.

    Then again, I haven't lived anywhere else so I can't really compare...

    Don't let that stop you or else there are a lot of large cities in America you will have avoid. In Detroit that is the normal everyday thing. What usually works is to just start your car and pull away if you are leaving or just walk to whatever building you are trying to go to without ever engaging them, even if they are trying to clean your windshield.

    Yeah as bad as this sounds, if you don't make eye contact or talk to them, they won't bother you. I had to learn this because I am used to saying hi to everyone I walk by (southern hospitality I guess), but they will follow you and try to make you buy crack or something if you do that.

    I like how you threw in buying up things at the high end stores. Very subliminal.

    In my experience, there was often a rush after visiting a new city. Actually living there was a whole other thing.

    Like I feel bad cause when they saw me walking to my car well my dads car I was driving his mercedes 2011 e350 coupe he knocked on my window was like do I have loose change I said noo after he said the words do you lol. But after I said no he said since that by judging by the car you drive you can help someone out. And another homeless guy said that spoiled rich young ppl like me make him sick cause were selfish.... icon_sad.gif and this was right after I left the mall at gucci
