Mood: happy


so i'm no longer homeless!

found a room in a gated community in the greyhawk area of scottsdale-



for the kids back home, this is pretty much the walnut creek of arizona; which is good (low crime) and bad (lots of SUVs, some neighbors aren't the friendliest) simultaneously.

the place itself is pretty swank, and i like the hard-edged architecture; my building:



our patio overlooks a courtyard with a communal bbq-



and the view from my room is the icing on the cake *smirk*



oh, and can't forget the already-resident kitty zim! he's cute.



needless to say i feel like i lucked out- even in this place, i'm paying almost two bills less a month than i was in SJ. my roomie has a lj too, she's divamatrix :)

school's about to start, finally... federal aid is going to pay for all but $6k of it and the rest is a pretty cheap student loan. orientation is next wednesday.

now all i need is a job... school has an interim placement program at local shops, and a friend pat has an opportunity at a catering gig... we'll see which i like the idea of more when unemployment runs out.

but yeah, wow, a positive entry about the state of my life... been a while...

Re:

so get your ass out here then- we're talking about finding somewhere bigger after the summer- at least you can throw your stuff in a plane instead of a car :)

Working on it. How might I find an IT job? (I need a year's salary to afford further flight hours)

That is awesome, Jason! It looks beautiful there. My favourite second cousin (the other non-Mormon black sheep of my family) lives in Scottsdale.

Also, that picture of Zim is hilarious to me, because of the hair tie sitting next to him. Jeffy is OBSESSED with hair ties. If I give him a hair tie, he goes INSANE. It is all he needs to be happy. I guess it's not just him! :P

First of all, welcome to AZ. Secondly, I'm jealous of the awesome places available in Scottsdale compared to the rentals here in Tucson. Good luck with everything! =)

wow, honey!! your place is awesome--can't wait to see it. (and yes, you have to share the window seat overlooking the pool in the summer time *evil grin* no hogging all the eye candy--tee hee!).

i've said it before, and i'll say it again...i'm so fucking proud of you :)
