I’m happy with where I’m living
I decided to move to the West Coast for several reasons. I was tired of long, cold and snowy winters. I wanted a fresh start. I also liked the opportunity for legalized weed. I didn’t know the cost of living in California is a lot higher than most other places. I checked online costs for recreational marijuana and found that they are approximately half the price of the prices for medical weed I was paying at the time. That encouraged me to move. I suffer from terrible anxiety and struggle with depression. Cannabis is about the only thing that has provided a decent quality of life. However, the cost of medical marijuana was draining my budget. I was lucky to have a relative already living in San Francisco. This made the move a little easier to handle. My Aunt provided me a place to live until I got on my feet. I thought she meant I could stay with her for a few weeks or even months. I realized that she was ready for me to move after just a couple of days. All of a sudden, I was in a hurry to find cheap accommodations in San Francisco. I barely had any money to my name. I found a few options for vacant apartments on craigslist. One of those was posted by a woman who was looking for someone to take care of her elederly mother during the day in exchange for free housing. I was super excited by this opportunity. I knew I’d still need to find a job to pay expenses, but free housing was a great start. I met with the woman and her mom, and we really hit it off. I was excited to move in and help out. It’s been a really great setup for all of us. I managed to get a job a couple evenings during the week and on weekends at a nearby marijuana dispensary. I can walk to work and back, which saves time and money. I love the job and the people I work with. I’m happy with where I’m living. I’ve never felt so good about where I’m at in life.
