There are some pretty good places to eat locally. There are some that I still don't even know about I'm sure. Boise is small yet big, so I keep finding out about more and more places, definitely have to go try them all soon. There are alot of great and unique places I've been to and friends as well that have told me too, very content with the options.
I have been able to find jobs, but there are other options that I wish could be more available, but degrees are huge for alot of jobs and the college students are kind of put on hold because we do not all have experience in certain areas or degrees quite yet so we are stuck with low paying jobs trying to survive in the world and in college at the same time.
