I keep seeing all these wonderful jobs on this list, and yes I'd love to come to China for an adventure but I don't think my family would. Doesn't anybody have these kinds of great jobs in Washington, DC? It would be a pleasure to apply for positions that actually require more than 1 or 2 years of real experience in UI/UX development, that appreciate the significance of our calling, and that actually pay more than a ridiculous hourly wage.

Something that surprised me about moving to PGH is my newfound awareness of:

- elder-care issues, from transportation and safe driving to in-home
services/care.

- ADA in general. omfg, stairs are *everywhere*. I cannot imagine being
in a chair or even on crutches in this town. Many of the elevators I've
been in were hopeless even with the ability to see clearly and move easily.

- signs and wayfinding. Welcome to a city where people give directions
based on business locations that closed or changed names years ago.
You'll spend your first year going "I'm WHERE? All I did was miss one
exit. I think. Or maybe that was the exit and I was in the wrong lane.
I thought I was supposed to turn left where the Isley's used to be."

Personally, I'm looking forward to moving around and experiencing new
things -- good and bad -- than spending the rest of my life in the bay
area or NYC.

New places can reveal new (or old) problems. But that doesn't mean there are any organizations or resources there to solve them.
