After residing in Bellingham for six years, I am leaving. I am relocating to a new town. But this is a big dream because I still need to raise funds to move me and my belongings to a new community in Washington State.
I’m currently staying in a cabin in Sudden Valley while I raise money to move. The new community is delightful and is located on the peninsula of Washington State. It’s not inexpensive and also has a housing shortage, but nothing like the one Bellingham is experiencing. There appears to be job opportunities in my field and as an entrepreneur I think it will work out for me in the new community.
I no longer recommend Bellingham as a place to live. It is a challenge to find good-paying work and available rental housing is 0.3 percent at this point, most likely the worst rental market in Washington State.
I will miss various businesses like the Community Food Coop, Terra, Living Earth Herbs, Village Books, etc…And I don’t regret my experiences because I have learned and grown from them. But I’m getting the kick in the butt to move on.
I will keep detailed records of how the campaign funds are used. And I will send this list out to funders of my campaign.
Please donate to my Go Fund Me campaign. Thank you.
