Many people in Bellingham are woefully underemployed. They come to Western Washington University, graduate, and don't leave. Consequently, there are not many jobs. And those jobs that are available get filled by overqualified candidates.
Others move here realizing that a ten year old VW may need to be maintained to last another ten. Downsizing one's life is not all bad. Actually the first time I jettisoned some long-held stuff, it actually was freeing. And besides, even forty year old Volkswagens are not uncommon in Bellingham.
My fifteen minutes are up so I guess I am not full of words tonight.
