Yeah, so I moved from Seattle to Omaha, Nebraska, which most people probably think qualifies me as criminally insane. Nevermind that I make a better salary doing the same job I did in Seattle, and that Seattle has one of the most ridiculous costs of living in the US, when one takes into account what people are paid to live there.
