I have such a nerd crush on John Green, I am embarrassed by it.
@jennknee I mean I have around 7 months expenses!
I think about these things and get anxiety! I have never 7 months of expenses in an emergency fund (covers rent, food, transit pass and hopefully enough for cheap health insurance). I have some retirement accounts. After taxes and penalties, it might last 1 year. My family wouldn't be able to help. I would like to imagine I could get unemployment to help ride it out. I know my mom expects me to support her one day and I just am not there yet. My situation doesn't seem terrible but I think about how I need to save more all the time.
@Ester Bloom they want copies of my DL and social security card and proof of address (I have moved.) Seems like too much trouble @.@
I found 9 dollars owed to me! Yay!
Lobster rolls look so good! Definitely worth the splurge!
I work for government. It’s nice in a way, because we kinda know how much everyone makes (give or take some differentials). It only sucks because I know I do much more complicated work than others and get paid the exact same amount (but the reverse is also true, others work much harder than I do).
UPS said it delivered an MP3 player to my mom by putting the package on the front porch. I bought it from amazon around Christmas time. My mom was sitting chatting with her friends on the front porch the entire evening when this supposedly happened (this is southern California, if you were wondering about the weather). So it could be UPS never delivered it at all! Amazon sent another MP3 player anyway. They are good!
you seem very together! thanks for sharing. may i ask how old you are? you seemed to have saved up a good chunk for retirement!
yeah. i recommend two weeks notice. it also depends on your relationship with your boss -- would she be understanding that you were unable to give more notice? when i quit my last job i gave two weeks notice -- however i was already on a vacation and got the call to start in two weeks that was not very flexible, with one week of vacation left. i tried to call my boss but she wasn't in. turns out her father in law had died suddenly. :( she was understanding though, everyone was very nice. i did good work and worked hard during my time there, and i don't think i burned any bridges...
