[FONT=Verdana]Hey everyone,[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Hey everyone,[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]I'm a young, single female currently living in northern, nj. I'll be graduating from college in the spring and am looking to move out of state. I haven't experienced much of anything besides New Jersey and am looking for new experiences and to grow as a person. Does anyone have any suggestions on a great place to start over? Here are some things to take into consideration.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]-In terms of weather I’m not too picky, anything too extreme would be nice. My favorite kind of weather would have to be September-October temperatures in New Jersey.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]-I don't want to live in a city, but I don't want to live in the middle of nowhere either. Hopefully, in a few years I'll be starting a family so I'd like a place that is safe and good to raise kids in.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]-I will be graduating with my Masters in Education so good schools for both professional and personal reasons are important. What is a good area where I will be able to find a job? I will be teaching high school social studies if that helps. I know social studies isn't an area in need of teachers, but it's what I like.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]-In terms of things to do I'm not that picky. An area with fresh air and a good place to go running would be great for me. I like sports more than art and music, but I'm open to different kinds of cultures.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]I'm open to moving anywhere in the U.S. Any suggestions and details about a place are greatly appreciated. Thank you.[/FONT]

What you've described here could apply to a lot of places. Maybe if you provided some info about the ways in which you'd like the new place to be different from NJ, this would help to narrow the possibilities. Also, are there only certain states where your teacher certification will transfer, or are all states open?

At this point, find a place that you can actually get a job. You should be happy if you accomplish that.

Hey everyone,
I have a problem. I have a husband but I do not want to be with him. He has put me through alot of pain and I want to leave. But I do not know how. I thought of a few things I could do but they all seem bad. The frist thought was to stay with my parents but I'm old school and the thought of them knowing my problems, well, it's not me. If I where to do that then I could save money, go to collage, and get a divorce. But I don't want to be around for the divorce. Then I thought I could stay here in my home and just be romates with him untill I could leave SC. But he makes alot more than me and he would be able to leave then I would have to find some other place cause I can't aford to stay by myself. Then I thought about selling what was mine and mine alone and hope that gave me enough to leave this place. Everything I have is paid for and it's mine. I could sell my truck but then I'd have to trade in my car and get something bigger like a jeep. My truck that I have is to big for just me so I could get a smaller truck instead of a jeep. I thought about leaveing and just going untill I was where I wanted to be. I could camp out untill I found a job and a house. Any of this would be okay, I guess, but I'm to scared of being alone. I have always hated to be alone and I guess it hasn't changed but I have to get over it someway or another. I'm confused and scared. I don't want to be here for the divorce but how can you get one if your not there? I have always wanted to live on a ranch or somewhere like that where people knew you and hepled you. I have always been attracted to cowboys but I know hardly anything about being a cowgirl. I think I know hard work or at least I think I can do it but well I don't even feel comfortable on a horse. I want to know that I am where I want to be but I can't do it if I am to scared to take the journy. This all sounds dumb to me but I need some edvice so I'm asking for it from one of you. What should I do about all of this that I'm feeling. This is realy stupid but I realy do not know very much about myself. If you would like to know alittle then I'll tell you. I use to live in the country, and played in the mud with 4 wheelers are anything on wheels but as I grew I stopped. I use to love to hunt but as I grew I started to feel bad for the deer. I want to be a out going person but I don't play any sports. I want to get back to being me but who am I now that I have grown? So not only do I have problems with what I want to do I also don't know who I am. Maybe I'm crazy...... Or maybe I'm still to young.. I don't know but I do know that I don't like how I'm feeling now. I don't know what your thinking about all this. I'm sure your saying I'm dump are crazy but could you give me advice anyway. I want to live somewhere that still has cowboys that still live on a place like a ranch. I want it to be away from Hampton, SC and I want to be some place where it's small enough to be able to get to know the people there. Is there still such places or has there ever been a place like that?
I am suppose to be asking for edvice on where I should live instead I'm giveing you my sppy story. Sorry!!!!!
