So I guess it all depends
On Oakland, on Oakland
His future depends on his upcoming confrontation with this girl. If she truly wanted to stay with him, and marry him, and even settle down and have kids with him (as this is paralleled with the protagonist in Childish’s screenplay “because the internet”), she has the ability to make him move to Oakland with her.
Whether or not he changes his life forever depends on Oakland, and the impending meeting he is so anxious to have.
