So I got a new job...with the Hillary Clinton campaign!! I'm so happy- I love campaigns, and the idea of packing up and moving halfway across the country is exciting! Plus I love Hillary. I graduated early from college a few months ago and I've been looking for political jobs in DC, but I couldn't pass up this opportunity. I am taking a pretty drastic pay cut, though - I'm paid a lot more at my current job, but--oh well! A couple less handbags is worth a great opportunity, right? So, the job is out in Iowa. I don't know yet what part of Iowa, but I will be there until January for the caucuses. Does anyone here live in Iowa? or near Iowa? Know anything about Iowa? is the cost of living really as low as people speculate? (and what exactly is low - I know housing, but gas prices? food?) And, most importantly, where can I go shopping?!
