Looking Ahead; or, Getting a Handle on the Future

As some of you may know, i have been able to crawl my way out of debt recently. Now, granted, i was not in debt up to my eyeballs or anything, but debt is debt, and being able to get rid of it is something I am rather proud of.

Now the plan is to make myself a little nest egg. A fund for when/if I move, or whatever I may need. The plan is I want to have an idea of where I will be, and what I'll be doing by next March 1st.

But, here is my dilemma. I don't know where I will be. Many of the people around here will be moving. Ian is headed to California, Patrick is headed possibly to Dublin, Horvath is talking of San Diego. Oh, and Wardo is either going to be in Florida, or GR.

So, the question becomes, do I stay or do I go? (insert your Clash reference/jokes here)

So, I have something to think about in the coming months. I would like to have it all thought out, planned (at least somewhat), and starting to wheels in motion by March 1st of next year. Any advice out there is of course appreciated, and I will keep all parties concerned posted.

You have complete empathy from me man. Life is so far up in the air i wonder if i will ever get a hold of it again. But whatever you decide to do i am sure it will be the best choice you can make at the time. said...

throw a dart on a map? Dude right at this moment all I know is that sometime between now and August 13th I am going to be a mom... beyond that absolutely no fucking clue... right now we have a house but we could move cause we all know what the job market is like here. I vote someplace really cool, or someplace you really love, or someplace with lots of opportunities... so tell that little voice in your head voting for Nebraska to fuck off
