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...
