My own, personal advice: DON’T come to Massachusetts.
I’d leave if I had someplace to go where there were friends and family and, just as important, a significant ratio of conservatives.
I’m old enough now that I have one foot in the grave, but this is no place for someone starting out, or even in middle age.
I enjoy Texas except for the hot summers. I don’t foresee us ever actually moving to MA since owning a house is a requirement. Even in NH the housing costs are ridiculous. While I may go back to the Midwest (like 4 full seasons we don’t get in TX), Texas has been very good to us. Live in one of the only ‘boom’ areas in the country right now.
