My (Whole) Life In North Valley, San Jose

I have been living in North Valley San Jose CA area since 4 years. I needed to plan the next phase of my job. From my mentor in Hartford CT, I was directed to got to this place. I decided to choose this part of silicon valley because it was much more affordable than the nearby tech cities like Sunnyvale, Mountain View and Cupertino. I chose to stay in hotel for a while. Then I found a couple of cheap but safe neighborhood nearby. My job in San Jose is to assemble microchips. The place I have stayed all these years is about three miles from my workplace, but close to the train station. I was pretty lucky so far to escape the raising rent, but I feel that this isn't the height of tenants seasons yet. North Valley has a great weather compared to the rest of California. Everyday in this city there is something exciting. Here is the thing about trying to find something in San Jose. If you are sure you are going in the right direction, what you are looking for will be there. This is true because, every street has plenty of stores, restaurants and places to relax or spend the night. I really don't mind wandering around in the evenings if I am not going too far to the east or west neighborhoods that are notorious for gang activities. There are really good cuisines in North Valley - Thai, Chinese, Mediterranean, Indian, American, and of course, fast-food joints in between. The food is excellent but the service might stink if you are not really careful about reading the reviews online. My place is about two miles south of a famous community college. A public park is right on the road's edge and I can hear the sound of birds as I write my review. In front of my place is an outdoor gym. It is a sunny day and there is a breeze coming off the public park. Words can't describe how wonderful. San Jose is a surprising city. It is much older and more popular than most cities around. There are some unique architectural elements, like San Jose conventional center, museums and churches. Then there is an amusement park nearby and if you are a single, plenty of things to do in the downtown area.
