Ridiculous Priced Rent

I live in Victoria which is undoubtedly one of the most sought after locations in Canada to call home. Unfortunately the cost of living here has become outrageous. I don’t know why but homeowners and apartment owners seem to think that everyone can afford high rent. Most people here have retail jobs and tourist industry positions that don’t pay well. If you have a family and need space you could be paying 2500-3600 per month for rent. Even as a couple we are looking at 1200-1800 per month if we want to live in a tiny apartment. Personally I prefer to live in a small house but there is no way to afford that. This has all happened in the past couple of years. Rents have gone up one third to double what they were just a few years ago. Many people are living in trailers when they can even find a place to park them. I would like to move but can’t find anything else that we can afford. I’m scared that in a short period of time we will end up living in our car or in a tent as so many are finding now. How can property that was probably purchased for 100,000-200,000 now be worth a million bucks? This is Craziness at its worst. Cost of living goes up 30-50% but wages creep up at 2-3%. You do the math folks. This is making people choose between rent and food. Sad times. πŸ€”πŸ˜ πŸ˜‘πŸ€¬

New Moon

Wiccan celebration of the New Moon….and other phases explained.

I worship every phase of our beautiful moon. Waxing maiden, full mother and waning crone. Although I fall under the crone category I still celebrate and worship the moon every chance I get. Blessed Be!πŸŒ‘πŸŒ’πŸŒ“πŸŒ”πŸŒ•πŸŒ–πŸŒ—πŸŒ˜πŸŒ™
