Today was my last day at nVidia… We had a combined welcome-goodbye dinner last night for a couple of us for various occasions of comig/going/relocating.

I’ll miss the tons of next gen technical discussion on the internal mailing lists, it’s quite the experience to read so much stuff, half of which is non-public NDA material :3

Now I can enjoy whatever free time I have left

Also started looking for a new place to move to, I love my room but it has its problems and I’d like to step it up a level sometime next year. My minimum requirements would be a separate bedroom and living room (how absolutely fucking luxurious, ahaha č‹ĶįŽ‘), so 1LDK or 2K/2DK

The minimum requirement for the location is that it needs to be 1 direct train ride from Shibuya, reasonably quiet, no more than 5-6 minutes from the station, (but farther than 1-2 mins, otherwise it’s bound to be too busy and noisy) and the ekimae has to come with a good selection of restaurants/shops/whatever.

(Also world peace and a pony)

Some candidates:

  • Meguro
    Pros: on the Yamanote line, so I can stay out late almost anywhere. Reasonably close. Busy ekimae.
    Cons: probably expensive, might be loud
  • ShimoK
    Pros: it’s ShimoK! One-shot access to Shibuya and Shinjuku, indie music scene, good shopping.
    Cons: might be the victim of an aggressive urban redevelopment project in the near future. Also, too many gaijins.
  • Jiyuugaoka
    Pros: recently popular place, not too far. Has a busy looking ekimae and the only reasonable Hungarian restaurant in Tokyo.
    Cons: might be expensive. The two lines aren’t that useful (Toyoko to Yokohama, maybe, sure, but Ooimachi-sen is useless for me)
  • Kichijoji
    Pros: awesome ekimae, also it’s right next to Inokashira park. Might be cheaper as it’s further away.
    Cons: it’s really fucking far away, the inokashira-sen express covers it in 20 minutes, but that train is a crowded nightmare during rush hour. No chance to take a taxi home, it’d run me upwards of 7-8000 yen at least
  • Omotesando (comedy option)
    Pros: so central, but a few streets off of the main drag and it’s actually really quiet. Good (real frickin expensive) shopping. The only place in Tokyo with hotter women than Shibuya. Also, I could almost walk to work.
    Cons: can’t afford to live there, especially given the above requirements

Need to think about this moar (such as what percentage of my would-be salary will be sunk into not living in a goddamn hole in the wall)
