What Is it like to live in Alaska ?

I live in fairbanks and just barely survived my second winter here, and its not even over yet. Let me tell you, it is very difficult and if i didnt have my fiance (who is an alaskan lifer) here to pull me through the 8 months of snow and dark i dont know what i would do. However, I also stayed here all last summer by myself and while some people love the daylight all the time, i fricken hated it, i need my night time to sleep, so i felt exahusted all summer. In the end though, i really do like it here, its just going to take some getting use to, but its so beautiful and has so much to offer. And the University of Alaska Fairbanks isnt bad at all, Iloveit.  (Mar 30, 2009 | post #23)

Moving to Eielson AFB in March

alaska is extremely beautiful, i just moved up here for college last year and while the winters are harsh and a little hard this place has so much to offer, and being a military brat, it was always "i hate this place" until you move, then it wasnt bad at all. So enjoy it while you can, because alaska is what america was.  (Mar 29, 2009 | post #8)
