Things Will Change
So, I'm going crazy in my current living situation. I love my family but it's not easy being here and seeing so clearly that I am the third wheel. So soon things will change. I don't know exactly how right now, but there are a few different options.
1) I applied to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in southern Utah. It's about a 6 hour drive from home, so having family visit or coming back for visits wouldn't be TOO difficult. Hoping to hear back from them soon, but the hiring process can take a while. After a phone interview, you could be offered a 2 week working interview. I have a lot of experience for the job I applied to, so I'm hoping my chances are high!
2) If I don't get the job in Best Friends I have 2 back up living situations here. I may move in with a friend (my last post is about the offer she made). In a nutshell if her husband gets a job in another city I will move in with her in exchange for help with the house and pets. If her husband doesn't get the job there won't be room for me, and in that case I will be renting out my friend's mom's condo. It's about 1,000 sq ft, she'll allow me to have pets (and finally be able to foster for my rescue), and it'll only be about $400 a month + $50 to $100 for electric (depending on time of the year and how much I use the air/heat).
I'm still interested in moving out of state, I want to experience something different like living somewhere with seasons. If I don't get the Best Friends job I'll at least wait until the new year to look for jobs in Colorado. In the mean time I will change my living situation into one of the options in 2 .
I can't wait to see what the future brings!!!
