I'm here paying $1,400 a month for a 400 square foot studio in San Diego. Every little penny I earn pays some kind of bill. It's hard enough for a bachelor. I can't imagine for someone who has kids like you disgruntled. I have nightmares thinking about what I would do if I ever got that call from the lady.
You're in San Diego too? Hello, neighbor! Dunno about you, but I'm busily plotting my escape from CA as we speak.
Hard to do with an ex-wife who refuses to leave and 4 kids you wanna be Dad to. But nothing worthwhile is easy. And I can't think of anything more worthwhile for a patriotic American (or really anyone with economic sanity) than to get the hell out of CA.
Vegas, here I come! In a year or so.
Meanwhile, let's grab a beer sometime, eh?
We are neighbors! That's so cool!
I'm with you about getting out. Love the weather. But good weather ain't worth $1,400 to live in a box. But I work for the federal government, and let's just say their transfer process is less than ideal. Unfortunately I have to deal with it until it goes through.
Sorry about your family situation. I can imagine how stressful that can be. You're absolutely right about nothing worthwhile being easy. I drove to San Diego from Florida 3 years ago, alone mind you, thinking that I finally got my break (after two years of no jobs after graduating college) only to find out it is totally unlivable on even a respectable $80,000 yearly salary. And it seems to be getting worse every day.
I'm totally down to grab a beer! Send me a PM with your email or cell phone number.
