I'm originally from the Inland Empire and absolutely loved it. I had to move up to fresno when i was 15 because of a job my dad was offered. Now I'm nineteen and really want to go back. I absolutely HATE fresno. Not trying to offend anyone who lives here, really. But I've been here for 4 years and really dont want to be here any longer than i have to. I just need advice. Whats the most affordable city as far as apartments go, and if anyone knows of any entry level jobs with pay above minimum wage please let me know. I just have to get out of this town. I'm honestly willing to work as hard as I have to. No questions asked.

Why do you think you will be happier in the inland empire after moving from Fresno?

I was born there. It's my home. My familys there, my oldest friends are there. I try to visit as much as possible. I always said I was coming back. I would never make this place my permanent home. Too many good people and memories down there.

Perfect response.

Is working part time and going to college or trade school a realistic scenario for you? Are there friends and or family you can stay with and perhaps cut down on rent? What have you been doing the past three or four years?

I would most likely work full time and go to school. My grandma has offered to let me live with her. So thats an option. My cousin is buying a condo pretty soon and has also invited me to live there. I wouldnt want to impose on either, and would probably only live there until I had enough money to rent with my boyfriend or friends. For the past four years ive been in high school. I work at target right now, ive been there for over a year, and Im trying to get another job right now..
