IT IS TIME FOR THE MUFFIN

I finally landed a sweet software engineering job in the area at a company called WorkForce Software, based in Livonia. My scheduled start day is June 18th, so I WILL indeed be moved up there and ready to rock in time for expo. Also I'm taking a few days off of work for expo during my first week like a BOSS. I'm pretty pumped to be living in a kickass area compared to lafayette; I'm thinking southfield or farmington, although I'm open to suggestions. Can't wait to rock out to the best event of the year fellow icrontians!

    Don't move to Southfield. If your choices are between Farmington and Southfield, there's no comparison. Both are suburban wastelands, but Southfield is a filthy former shell of a suburban wasteland. Farmington is much nicer.

    Oh, well then, duly noted. Do you have any other suggestions better than farmington in any case? It seems decent enough, but I was wrong about southfield =P

    Livonia proper isn't bad, either. I grew up there. It's pretty well divided among the 3 major zoning types, and there's TONS of residential there.
  • I don't know that I'd call Farmington a "wasteland". My fiancee's parents live there, I find it to be quite nice for the most part.

    It's a wasteland in the cultural sense. Chain stores and strip malls as far as the eye can see.

    Not everyone thinks that's a bad thing, Mr. Hipster.

    I know. Just laying it out there for disclosure.

    Haha, well I do tend to agree with brian, but I don't really have much of a choice leaving near livonia I don't think. It's fairly close to royal oak, which has some sweet stuff goin on.

    Just live on the moon. Commute sucks, but there's a great view.

    And no chain stores or restaurants.
