making a move... Posted On: 2/21/2010 4:43:32 PM
As I have stated before, I have visited NYC a few times and I plan on moving here in a couple of years. Any advice for a young sinlge mom of one, from texas, who is on the road to acheiving a degree in finance? I appreciate wisdom from anyone who is, or has been in my situation. Thank you.

I love it and plan on moving there within the next 2 years. I enjoy the cultural diversity, recreation, career and educational opportunities, and the strong and driven mindsets of the people! I have visited 4 times and I cannot get over it. It is said to be one of the easiest places to "climb the ladder" of success. NY has too much to offer, with hard work and dedication, you will reap many great rewards from the big apple!

I grew up in killeen(unfortunately)due to being a military brat. I joined the military, did 3 years and returned. Thankfully I now have a job where I leave killeen almost on a weekly basis, but I do plan on leaving the town all together in a couple of years.
The only good things I can mention about Killeen is the low cost of living, and the wonderful worship services offered to the community. Other than that I ask where is the corporate businesses? where is the great recreation for children and adults? where is the culture? where is the big career opportunities? and where is the ambition and drive in the people of killeen. I have a great paying job that sends me to all kinds of locations. Upon visiting GREAT places such as NYC, I realized almost everyone here just "settles". Seems almost every womans goal in life here is just to marry a soldier, and many people here simply do not strive for greater success.
I refuse to live here any longer and have my four year old son grow up thinking that the Army is the only opportunity for him. Unfortunately that seems to be the thought process for many people here when there is much more this country has to offer.
Like I said, I have been in and out of this town for years but now is the time for me to move on to a place of greater opportunities, adventure, and people who are driven in life! Peace out K-town
