It's good to hear that people are friendly! I will revel in the fact that there will actually be people to socialize with. Going from college campus to rural life is a drag.
And yeah, I tell myself all of the time that a large metropolitan area will yield many job opportunities. But until I get there and start seriously job hunting I will be perpetually anxious about this.
What would you say night life is like in Seattle? I would really like to see a lot of live music.
