To more or not to move to Hawaii?
    #3783691 - 02/15/05 03:43 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

That is the question!

I know I asked about island life before, but now the possibility of moving to Hawaii (from the midwest) is more of a reality for me. I still don't have to make the decision until I'm actually offered the job, but that day is getting closer! I've heard that the mosquitoes over there are huge! I've also heard that the food and housing is really expensive, but you can get around the food by going to the farmer's markets and buying fresh things. Any advice that anyone has about any aspect of Maui will be greatly appreciated when making my decision... pros, cons, I want to hear it all!

Have a happy sunny Tuesday  :sun:

:peace: Peace :peace:

The whole place is green isnt it?

Life moves slow. The way of life revolves around friends.

You get friends and thats what you do you chill and become family.

She's from the midwest though.....Yellowstone Park is a super volcano.....one that could kill off all humanity if it erupts so....  Anyway, I'd love to live in Hawaii, the place looks so beautiful.  :shrug: Maybe I watched Magnum PI too much.  :lol:

I lived on Oahu for several years.
beautiful.

expensive as fuck.
crazy insects
roaches own the islands
we kept our toothbrushes in the fridge because of this fact.

I would go back in a heartbeat
but cant afford it.

you will be a haole
many do not like white people/mainlanders.
haole
haole
you will be called this often.

I say move there if you have means.
enjoy!

Yeah, there was a special on the National Geographic Channel about it, they said that the last time a super volcano blew it almost wiped out the human race. They also said they go off at certain intervals, and that it's almost time for this one to go. However, this is based on a long term ratio, one that includes the whole history of the planet, so the time is about ripe.....but still probably won't happen for at least another 100,000 years. Ya never know though....watching that show gave me the chills.

I say go to Maui. Oahu sucks ass compared to the other islands. You'll think you're in China when you're in Oahu. Lahaina is a cool little town in Maui where the people are very friendly for hawaiian locals. Cant beat island life especially for a few years or so.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Yes, I am here in the cold midwest, and it looks like Hawaii is about the same temp year round! (I really want to go to yellowstone by the way!). I've heard that Yellowstone can blow at any time, that's why I need to go see it soon!

That's what I'm thinking. Even if I only live there for a few years, I think it would be worth the experience! I would be living near Kihei, which is on the non-touristy side of Maui. I've heard it's beautiful there!

You will be more than welcome to come visit me if I get to move there. You'll have a place to stay in Maui, all you need to pay for is the ticket over there :wink:

Is it true that there are gigantic mosquitoes all over the islands? I've been to rainforests before, but as large as the bugs seem, they don't really bother the people too much. Roaches, ewwww! No Oahu for me!

I've heard that housing and food are super expensive. I'll just have to deal with housing, but I think I'll adopt a native diet and eat fresh food from the local farmer's market. I've heard you can save a bundle of money this way!

How on earth do you pronounce "haole"? I want to know how to properly pronounce what I am :wink: Is it considered derogatory, or just descriptive? I don't want to offend anyone! I've also heard that if you chill and relax, the locals will adapt to you more readily than if you come over with an inner-city attitude.

Chill I can do!

And speaking of chilling, anyone know what the  :mushroom2: and :stash: scene is like over there? Should I bring :bong2: :bong: with me, and is that even safe?

yes. just like every other tropical rainforest in the world.

roaches are everywhere - not just oahu. just like every other tropical rainforest in the world. if you cannot handle giant roaches everywhere, then you should not move to hawaii.

I guess. I dont think there is so much a price difference.

how-lee

It is the equivalent of being called a nigger or a fag or a wetback. you will be a minority - and many locals do not like mainlanders or white people.

adapt to you? these arent baboons on your personal safari you know...just like anywhere, dont be a dick or arrogant and you'll be fine.

dont bring drugs with you on an airplane - thats retarded.

Haole means "one who's skin burns easily" and as stated above it is derogatory but it is also used in a friendly tone as when blacks call each other 'nigga'. I've had many local friends who still to this day call me haole but it's all good. And the roaches are affectionately called palmetto(sp?) bugs and they fly. I lived in Hilo on the big island and I didn't think that the mosquitos were that bad as compared to say the southern US or the NE in summer.
