Where I Live

Five months ago, my life changed, as I hinted was a possibility in my last post. As most (if not all) of my readers know, I accepted a position at the Residence Inn Hughes Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have never lived outside of Utah, so this was a big move for me.

I now live in Henderson, Nevada. According to Wikipedia:

[Henderson] is the second largest city in Nevada, after Las Vegas, with an estimated population of 257,729 in the 2010 census. The city is part of the Las Vegas metropolitan area, which spans the entire Las Vegas Valley. Henderson occupies the southeastern end of the valley, at an elevation of approximately 1,330 feet (410 m).

In 2011, Forbes magazine ranked Henderson as America's second safest city. Analysts attribute this to Henderson being an affluent city, with a high median income and amenities catering to local residents. Henderson has also been named as "One of the Best Cities to Live in America" by Bloomberg Businessweek.

For the most part, I love it here. I enjoy my job, and I like living in Las Vegas where I can pretty much do anything I want when I want.

The downside to the move was leaving my friends and family. I miss them very much, but I was lucky to visit them last week. The holidays will not be the same without them, though.

I do not really have any friends here, so it can get pretty lonely, but I am slowly meeting new people. If you ever come visit, let me know; I would love to see you.
