I moved here because of the art community, and I loved everything else about Seattle anyway.

You know, I do think it's odd to answer "somewhat unhappy" and yet at the same time more or less unequivocally say that I'd do it again if I had the opportunity. I can't say it's untrue, though. I mean, in more than a few ways this place has been pretty good to me and I can't deny it.
