Moving to Seattle/Bellevue - help me move/adjust

I am moving to Seattle/Redmond/Bellevue after being in Los Angeles for quite a long time. Moving from SoCal to WA is quite a change and I interested in getting tips/recommendations/suggestions from the hive mind to help me adjust in the new city.

I am 24, single male, moving to SEA for my work. LA was pretty dry but many times I used to find it cooler than how I liked.
I have a tendency of falling sick when weather changes suddenly and when the temperature dips so I am worried about Seattle. Luckily my workplace is a 10 minute bus ride from my house so not much of a commute but I still would prefer staying dry.
- What sort of clothes would you recommend? Rainy wear?
- Being sane and not getting depressed in the gray cloudy weather? (which i have heard about but am yet to experience as I haven't been in Seattle for long).
- Any tips for my electronic devices?
- Good (not too expensive) places to eat/have some fun/meet people
- Any other suggestions.
I have many past posts related Seattle but they have primarily dealt with housing/localities etc.
