Eh Im doing better now. Just going to have to grind it out. Yeah Im in a bit of a tough situation right now but it's not the first time and i've pulled through.

Just found out something that has been causing people not to reply as much on craigslist, solving the problem will probably help a lot.

My strategy is to hold my job down in orlando while looking for rooms downtown (some show up, hopefully its just a matter of time) and taking a couple days a week down in south florida to look around and apply for work. If I get a job down there I can take that job from my place down there. If I get the better job in orlando first I can take that one. Whatever is meant to be will be.

As for school Im not for sure on going for a graduate degree in business. If I find a job I like well enough in that field they often pay for that stuff. Id rather put a focus on my degree or go for something totally different.

If fort lauderdale is spotty Im wondering if it's spottier or more dangerous than Orlando? Seems like it's probably being made out to be worse than it is but the places I can afford are not east or west, they are in the middle outside the los olas general area, a bit more to the southwest. That's where I see stuff for 500. Other than that it's hollywood. It seems easier to find an affordable place down there somewhat close to stuff, at least easier than Orlando. I guess the catch is that it's real bad area's?? Im just wondering how bad. Is it like little patches as bad as a place like west orlando? I hope not.
