Starting over
« on: September 10, 2014, 04:56:38 PM »
Hello! I am a 28 year old male currently living in New York. I've lived here on and off since 2008 and I greatly desire on moving as the cost of living is soaring and quality of life is diminishing. I have been unemployed for the past year as I've found it hard to obtain work. I was in the process of obtaining work with TSA, but lost the opportunity due to a poor credit score. I barely have savings and I am surviving from public assistance and housing.
I would like to move to a city with a decent job market and cost of living. I am a very hard working person and have huge goals ahead of me. I just want to get in the position where I am able to live somewhat comfortably and save money. I am not concerned about weather and I do not have any type of criminal record. Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated! :)

I mean if you could get a job you like in an otherwise somewhat rust-belty city, cost of living might be reasonable.
