Where To Move - Suggestions

I was born in the South and I've lived all my life in the South.  I've traveled to different states and different counties.  One thing that this all has shown me is that I want to leave the South.  I moved to Houston for a job and through various professional and personal reasons I've been here for about 10 years.

And now I'm tired of it.

Be it the politics, the redneck idiocy or the heat...yeah mostly the heat (summers are almost triple digit temperatures) but I'm ready to leave.

I have always looked towards the Pacific Northwest as a place to move, but I know that it is a fairly expensive place to live (though I know that the pay usually will reflect that).  Seattle was where I always thought about going, but I know that there are other places around there, as well as other places throughout the country that could be good places to move to.

With that, I'm turning to the followers of my sites, I'm looking for suggestions for places that would be good to move to.  I'm looking into possibly moving next year, though a personal or a professional change might keep me from moving, I'd like to start looking into the possibilities.  There are a few requirements though.

1. Temperature - Summers here in the South can be 100+ for an entire month, I am looking for a place that actually has seasons and a summer that doesn't burn you to a crisp.  I much prefer cooler weather than heat.  Also, I've never driven in snow, and I don't want to have to deal with feet upon feet of snow.

2. Job - My day job is as a project manager at an IT company.  I would like to stay somewhere in the IT field, though something creative would be good too.  I would need a place that has businesses or regional offices that would need IT.

3. Costs - One of the things that the South has been known for and is a good thing is that the cost of living here is very low.  So you get more for most things that don't have costs set by a main office.  Property values are low as well and your dollar goes further.  I'm looking for an apartment to start off with a home possibly later, but I don't want to spend most of my income just on rent.

4. Infrastructure - I am always online and I'd definitely need some place that has consistent internet.  I had dial-up until 2005, so believe me I am not looking for fiber or anything like that, but some place that I'm not having my connection constantly dropped.

5. Social Amenities - I'm an anti-social introvert, so I am not looking for a place that is filled with bars and clubs.  But I love to go see a movie and I am a bit of a foodie, I’d like there to be good places to try.

I hope that I haven't been too picky in my requirements.  I would like to see what suggestions you all have.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Pipe - Collab

Pipe

Continuing my on going work with Kazario, this is his OC, Pipe. I really liked the contrast from the thin twink and the massive cock. It was a fun break from some other commissions that I am working on.

I hope that you all enjoy.

Axiem - Pokemon Trainer

Axiem
 Since I've been working with Kazario on a few different drawings I was interested in making my own Pokemon trainer. I have never played any of the Pokemon games, so I was going into this drawing with just the bare knowledge that I had gleaned from video game websites over the years and one viewing of the Pokemon movie back in 2000.

Using that movie I based some of his armor on the armor that MewTwo wore at one part in the movie. I wanted to make a more mature trainer than the anime and games portray. Think of this as my gritty reboot of Pokemon.

I hope that you all enjoy.

Feeding Time - Collab Comic

Feeding Time

 The always inventive and prolific Kazario came up with a comic idea that he wanted me to color. Seeing as how I love his style I was honored and quickly got to work on it.

Please excuse the colors, some of them might seem a bit washed out. I recently updated to Windows 10 and I've been trying to get my color settings back to where they were before, but it's taking a while.

I hope that you enjoy.
