So either way I think I need to find a new place to live and besides 1-2 leads that aren’t calling me back i cannot afford to live alone in the Portland area and I don’t think I can live with strangers. This leaves either a significant raise at work or relocating to a new place.
My brother lives in Houston, Texas I looked and found apartment after apartment that would allow me to live comfortably, pay off debt and still have a life, my brother also said that there are jobs a plenty and Craigslist supports this.
My other idea is Indiana near the Kentucky boarder one of my best friends just moved there in November. Craigslist shows jobs a plenty in the Louisville area and there are more apartments than I can count that I could again live comfortably in, pay off debts and still have a life.
Obviously I could go back to Reno and I have wonderful friends there but I feel like if I move I want to go somewhere new.
Both Texas and Indiana would be huge leaps of faith for me but at least this time I would have friends/family there. Also I want a farm and a husband who wants to farm and to have kids and both those places seem like they might have some men options for that hahahahaha!!!!
On the other hand I have been doing meetup.com and my training and I am finally feeling like socially I am starting to get my sh*t together. I love the women in my book club, though I could use meetup.com in both those new places and true bonds haven’t been formed with these women yet so yea.
Anyone want to give me their advice/thoughts/opinions?
