Berkeley, CA


I Really Liked It While I Was There
- 5/29/2007
Hi, I've lived in Berkeley for 14 years, attended the University there but never graduated. I worked as a waiter there. What can I say about it? Well it's very liberal, intellectual, and international place. Plenty of things to do, if not in Berkeley then within 8 miles away in San Francisco, and neighboring Oakland (3 miles away). The weather is very good (not humid at all) but the only downside is the winds at night which tend to be brisk. Berkeley itself is also much more laid back then San Francisco. What I didn't like about it, and why I would not go back, is the cost of living. It is VERY EXPENSIVE, especially for me as a waiter. If you're not a professional making at least $60,000 a year, or if you're not a student attending UC Berkeley, do not move there, or Oakland, or San Francisco. There are less expensive places to move to in the U.S.
