You need to be careful about the nursing plans. It is difficult to get into nursing school here in CO, apparently because of a shortage of faculty. I have a lot of co-workers and acquaintances who are/have been wait-listed for various schools here in metro Denver. I would imagine it's even harder in a small community with fewer programs.

I have lived in Pueblo West for almost a year. I have a really nice home that I purchased in the $140's, but the bad thing is my yard is sad looking. I couldn't afford to add landscaping at the time which was about $4,000, and can't afford it now, either. I can't find someone to do it. Guys, (Hispanics both times) come by, place cards in my mailbox, stop if they see me in the yard, look, measure, talk, but you never see them again. They don't answer their phones either. Oh well, I'd do it myself, if I could, but there again, I have a part-time job that doesn't pay very well. Why, I have a BS degree in Education, have been a secretary, use to be a mail carrier, but I can't find a decent job and believe me, I have looked and applied many times and many places. I like Pueblo, but it seems it doesn't like me.

Pueblo is all that bad (?? Pueblo is bad? Pueblo isn't all that bad? Bad=Pueblo? Come on now. Aren't you in like the 10 and a half grade now?) WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

I mean maybe I'm just used to it by now, but we're planning on moving to Springs.

[I may not have the perfect grammar and all anymore, but I like to insert a paragraph once in a while for readability.]

I think I know what you're saying. Springs is a pretty good town. It's about 5 times bigger than this town, so a lot more excitement for sure. Things are a bit more expensive so you'll have to make do with what you can for now, you know. Look out for your mom and yourself and just kind of be a bit street smart and you should be ok. You get to chose your friends. Pick people who are going to be a positive influence for you. Make school a priority. You can practice your typing skills here. Sorry to be such a smart alleck (sp??) and welcome to City-Data. I mispell words quite a bit just on accident, but I google stuff when I'm not sure. As far as punctuation, you should be well versed on that by now. Try to practice it here.

What in the world compelled you to dig up this old thread? This is the very thread that brought me to City-Data.

I think a better way is to come out and visit us.

I think it's about high time for a Pueblo Pic thread. HaHa! Pueblo was once the #2 city in the state and it will probably never have it's own sub category. And unless I get some neighbors in here, nor should it.

I wish all of SouthEastern Colorado would come in here and represent.

I'd love to. Thanks for lookin'. My computer keeps crashing! I just failed twice to get a bunch of pics up. Adobe 9 just crashed my computer a minute ago and I lost my post!

What childrens theater do you speak of? Comparision of Pueblo to P-dub; an old well established city with character, scars, trees, and beauty vs a high plains desert with a res and wind and prairie rats and a rabbit infestation, and dust, and -did I mention wind, and no trees! Just kidding.

Neiborhoods, the zoo, and downtown coming up! I was just thinking how I've never taken any from the River Walk. Tomorrow I go to lunch at Patti's, so we'll se what I can come up with.
