I may be moving to Seattle from Ireland. I'm 23, and don't plan on raising a family for at least another 600 years. Which part should I move to?
Honestly, that depends on quite a bit: what are you into, do you plan to have a car, do you think you’re likely to get a job/go to school in a central, public transit-accessible area, are you willing to have roommates/can you afford a pricey rent by yourself?
That said, there are a couple of neighborhoods I’d recommend, all of which are fairly convenient to live in car-free. Capitol Hill is a pretty vibrant part of town, is very queer-friendly, and actually has some restaurants and social activities that are open past 9pm. Belltown is a little older and a little more run-down, but is amazingly charming. And the University District isn’t quite as hopping as Capitol Hill, but has a lot more roommate options (including some large shared houses) and a younger social scene, plus, if you live near The Ave (aka University Avenue), has more walkable (often cheap) restaurant and bar options.
When/if you are ready to start looking for a place to live, you could do much worse than to check out Craigslist for apartment/roommate listings. Your best bet for getting a feel for the scene in the neighborhoods I mention is to start reading The Stranger online.
Good luck! If you haven’t been to Seattle yet, you’ll probably find the climate pretty familiar. I don’t know if you’re an American living abroad or an Irishman seeking to move here, so I don’t know what advice to give you. There isn’t exactly a distinct Irish community here, but there are a lot of Irish expatriates in the area and (if you are Irish) you may be able to find someone who can help you make the transition.

1. That’s the title of the photo as written by the photographer, not us. See how this is in italics? That’s us. We’ve covered this before.
2. This isn’t a blog, it’s a Tumblr. Blogs are for long-form writing. Tumblr is for sharing media. You are apparently unfamiliar with both the Fuck Yeah trope and with using the Share on Tumblr feature.
3. You are a bigot and a racist. Is there a Fuck Yeah! Los Angeles? Go there.
4. Spelling like an illiterate asshole on the Internet is from about a decade ago. Get your shit together.
5. I don’t see your name on the signature line of the big checks Tumblr isn’t sending us to run Fuck Yeah! Seattle, so we’ll take your friendly suggestions under advisement.
Have a great Seattle day! Enjoy the sunshine! When you get back home to LA we do hope you’ll remember us fondly, Anonymous.
