1  UNITED STATES / New Mexico / Re: Hello Albuquerquians! (?) on: May 17, 2012 07:45:27 AM
I love living in Albuquerque! It's really a fantastic place! The weather is beautiful and the skies are the most beautiful blue color. I've lived here most of my life except for a five and a half year stint I spent in Oregon (a place I also loved for very different reasons).

UNM is a great school. It has it's problems like any big university, but I graduated from there in 2011 and I enjoyed it quite a bit. It's a good city for a nondriver, though the bus system can be kind of shaky. Just give yourself some extra time to get from place to place and you'll be fine. My boyfriend can't drive so he takes the bus everywhere, no problems. Just go to the ABQ transportation website and get the list of bus times ().  It's a pretty big city, but not as big as a lot of other "big cities". I hope you like it out here! Moving can be crazy and stressful but Albuquerque is one of the most unique areas in the Southwest, in my opinion.

Crafting here is good too! We've got the big box craft stores (Michael's, Hobby Lobby and Joann's) in addition to small indie stores. Here's some of my favorites (not sure what crafts you do, tho):

I hope you enjoy New Mexico!
