Hi, my name is Merrie and I like over in Bennington, Vermont. I am almost 33, single with no children even though I do want them I have not been lucky enough yet to start a family. To make a very long story short I have always been miserable here and am always going to the Albany/Saratoga areas for dinning and shopping. I hate it here for many reasons but mainly there is nothing here. I cannot count how many times I have driven to Albany/Saratoga it has been so many. I would like to start looking for work over there and am hoping for some opinions. It is close enough for me to still visit friends and family but far enough away where there are things to do/see. I do not have a degree but half of an associates in business so I can de clerical or customer service. I will be renting a room and would like to know the areas to look into, I want to keep it around an hour drive if I can. I heard Clifton Park was nice but want to get some opinions. Things I would like to avoid are rude people and crime. Here nothing violent ever happens, you can leave your house and car unlocked and nothing happens.

Thanks for your help in advance,
