Living in Central Oregon

This part of my blog is going about how my everyday life since I have moved to Central Oregon.

I have been here for four and half years now and I have lived with roommates, I have lived in a camp trailer, my own apartment and now currently with my boyfriend. I have lived in Bend, Redmond and Prineville.

When I moved up here, I thought it would be easier to live some how because of the smallness of the town, the fact that Oregon is a no sales tax state and it just seems cheaper. When I first moved here, maybe some of those things were true but as the years have gone on, it seems no matter where you live, its expensive.

Central Oregon is for the most part a tourist and retirement community. In the few years I have been here, I have seen it grow almost 3x times in size. It is so crazy.

I heard on the radio that about 60% of people now a days, have a side job just so they can stay afloat.

I have a full time, 8-5pm job but its almost not enough to pay bills and live out my dreams.
