The cheapest one bedroom apartment in my neighborhood is $1550 and the square footage is smaller than most hotel rooms
California has one of the largest LGBTQ populations in the entire country, with San Francisco consistently ranking near the top of the list. Pride is on the rise in California and that can be seen all over San Francisco. The streets are lined with pride symbols, rainbow flags, and LGBT friendly signs and shops. Diversity is celebrated in San Francisco and that is one of the things that I love most about the region and the city. I moved to San Francisco ten years ago for two important reasons. I didn’t think the midwest was a great place to explore my sexuality and I knew I was gay. I was a daily marijuana smoker and recreational weed was 100% legal in CA at the time. Recreational marijauna is easily less than half the price I was paying before I moved. It is more abundant and the varieties are endless. The supply never runs out and each dispensary has different products, sales, and specials. I found a job working in a dispensary close to my apartment. The job pays the bills, but I have to work part time at a clothing store in downtown San Francisco near Chinatown. There is no way for one person to survive in San Francisco unless you make good money or you work two jobs. It’s a great place to live and work,but it surely isn’t cheap at all. The cheapest one bedroom apartment in my neighborhood is $1550 and the square footage is smaller than most hotel rooms. I have to pay for a parking pass and I don’t even have central AC.
