Hi there! I’m Maliika! I’m a Denver transplant. My mom brought me from very far away. I’m not sure where here is but I like it so far. Snow is fun. There’s so many trails that are good for a dog like me. It was scary coming here though. I had to spend the night at an airport somewhere. It was very strange and lonely. But Mom made sure that I was ok, and now we’re here and it’s great. My favorite thing is anything that I can go chase. Currently pine cones are extra fun. I’ll chase one for hours if you keep throwing it for me. You are going to throw it for me right?  Read More

Julia has lived in Boulder for the past three years. When she first moved here, she rented a two bedroom, two bath apartment with all utilities and pet rent included for $750 a month.

“A musician, a poet, and a young man searching for his life.” To escape the “Meth heads and Mormons” of Missouri, Pier came to Boulder in search of fabled beautiful scenery and a lot of enlightened people. While he found this to be true, he also found that there is a level of pretentiousness that comes with the amount of money some people have here. There’s a huge focus on arts in Boulder that he falls right into. He primarily plays guitar, but is the master of all things strung, like the ukulele and bass. But he’s a “lyricist above all else”. He’s always had an affinity for... Read More
