So I am moving back to Tempe... at least until I'm done with College in two years. I figure with me driving out there so much now with school, the fact that I'll be working in that part of town still... the fact that I will be making significantly less money by not working as an instructor, and gas prices are over $4 a gallon, I figured it was in my best interest to move to Tempe and cut down on gas and drive time and get a roommate to cut down on rent. I am nervous about it all, but really see the benefit of it all. At the same time, I have discovered just how blessed I have been over the last 2 years to be working at such a well paid job and over the last year and a half to be living in such an INCREDIBLE apartment. I am seriously having the hardest time finding a suitable apartment in Tempe that won't take my arm and leg and raise my risk of being murdered or raped... crazy. The thing that is really making it all difficult is that I can't sign a lease for longer than 6 months. I am still hoping to be in England in January and so I don't want the complication of getting out of a lease with everything else. I also found such a great roommate :) Emily is a friend of Kendra's and goes to her church. I really do think this'll be a great experience for the next 6 months.
BUT please pray that I find an apartment... and soon!!! 6 months starts July 1st
