Phoenix is the largest and most populous city in the state of Arizona. It is also the state capital and the largest state capital in the United States in terms of population. Phoenix is the only state capital with a population of more than a million. It is also the county seat of Maricopa County. It is the largest city in the Mountain Time Zone as well as the second largest city in the Western United States after Los Angeles, California. It is the region's primary cultural, economic, and financial center, while its airport is a major transportation hub. Phoenix is located on the banks of what is now the normally dry Salt River (with the exception of Tempe Town Lake). The city was incorporated on February 25, 1881. The city's metropolitan area is also known by its nickname, "The Valley of the Sun" or the shortened "The Valley," because the city is surrounded by mountains on all sides. Residents of the city are known as Phoenicians.
The city is currently the fifth largest city in the United States in terms of population with a 2007 estimated population of 1,552,259. Its city proper is the tenth largest for land area in the United States at 517 square miles (1,340 km2). As of 2008, the Phoenix Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) was the thirteenth largest in the United States, with an estimated population of 4,579,427.
For more than 1,000 years, the Hohokam peoples occupied the land that would become Phoenix. The Hohokam created roughly 135 miles (217 km) of irrigation canals, making the desert land arable. Paths of these canals would later become used for the modern Arizona Canal, Central Arizona Project Canal, and the Hayden-Rhodes Aqueduct. The Hohokam also carried out extensive trade with nearby Anasazi, Mogollon, and other Mesoamerican tribes.
It is believed that, between 1300 and 1450, periods of drought and severe floods led to the Hohokam's abandonment of the area. Local Akimel O'odham settlements, thought to be the descendants of the formerly urbanized Hohokam, concentrated on the Gila River alongside those of the Tohono O'odham and Maricopa peoples. Some family groups did continue to live near the Salt River, but no large villages existed.
Father Eusebio Kino, an Italian Jesuit in the service of the Spanish Empire, was among the first Europeans to travel here in the 1600s and 1700s. By this time, the valley was within the territory of New Spain, which was controlled by Spain and later independent Mexico. Father Kino named the river "Rio Salado" (Salt River) due to the water's high mineral content. He interacted with the few native peoples who remained in the valley but focused mostly on the Pima missions established in southern Arizona as well as exploring other parts of the Southwest and California. Only southern Arizona experienced the full influence of Hispanic cultures – the Salt River Valley itself remained almost depopulated for several centuries.
I was just recently laid-off from the job position I had held for six years. I was an office manager for a local home builder (at the time of my lay off I was working at three of our locations). I'm a full-time student at ASU studying for a BSN. Since I have yet to find a new position I am looking to downsize to a smaller apartment or live with a roommate (my unemployment doesn't cover my rent at my current apartment where I live in Ahwatukee). I have one cat. She is a very tiny, old, extremely quiet and sweet persian kitty. She has NEVER had any accidents in the 16-17 years since I've had her (she hasn't even meowed!!! I'm not even kidding!). If you have issues with pets, she (and I...lol) have no issues with keeping her in my room.... I spend a lot of my time at school, work (well I use to!), and studying.
What I am Looking For...
I looking for an older, more stable, educated roommate. I'd prefer someone who's mature, laid back,and easy going. I also want a very safe and again stable environment.
