On October 1st I celebrated my first year in Colorado. Even though I love it here and never ever want to leave, it?s been a tough year. I moved to Colorado after getting laid off work in Illinois. I moved to Northern Colorado without a job and it?s been very tough finding work here, especially in this bad economy. This past summer I finally found a job, but unfortunately the job didn?t work out as I had hoped. After a very short time of being employed I ended up leaving.
