Yeah I was aware that Opelousas was pretty bad.

Breaux Bridge was nice though, I actually have been there.

Alright, looking at apartments in Carencro and Broussard, which are closer to what I want.

I did break from the general opinion here about Alexandria just on one thing. In nearby Pineville, there's a Communication Representative job at Cleco, a utility company, that's $18 per hour and I put in for it. I'm very well aware how far that would go in Louisiana. That kind of money is the only reason why I'd ever choose it.

That would probably go far in Alexandria but probably not that far in Lafayette.

Broussard would be a maybe but not Carencro. Cleco was brought out by an out of country company. Be careful if you choose this company for employment.

I imagine there's a risk of them laying off local employees for foreign workers?

Maybe cities like Eunice, Many, and Houma.

I will say that Luna's has great salmon.
Luna's also makes a pretty mean crab dip.

Yeah, it's just I finally got sick of my circumstances and decided to relocate. I have the money to do it now.
