I'm mid-upper 30'*, and on my own in an apt is DAMN comfortable to say the least.

Being single the last two months sure helped the bank account too, no surprise I ran out built a computer, bought a new bike..

Yes that is comfortable for one person but if you ever want a family.....

You will have to mulitiply 30 x the number in your family. In my case with 4, that'* about right.

Congrats!!!! 31k is a nice chunk of change per year, I am SO jealous of my Dad'* 70k a year.

I FINALLY got a job also. Salesperson at Sears Hardware & Appliance. Only $7.50 a hour for the first 90 days, then $x.xx (don't know yet), but heck, it'* better than nothing. Plus, it'* my first job on a payroll.

Not jealous! You should be proud!

Give yourself about 20 years and you could be there too.

Being jobless on unemployment kinda sucks right now. No success with anything I've tried. Although with my recent success I might try and make a business selling other peoples stuff on Craigslist and mowing lawns for the summer.

Jobless is giving me ideas...

31k a year is ~15 bucks an hour...not too bad.

are you on salary? Is the job in the food industry?

I know my roomate use to manage a high end restaraunt and was making roughly $60,000 a year.

Hans--your math is a little flawed. as anyone in the food service industry will tell you, managers never work less than 40 hours a week. Congrats on the upgrade custom88

Congrats on the new job. Following on what lunchboxx said, I hope you have some idea of the hours your new job expects you to put in on job. Food industry is famous for taking hourly employees, giving them salaried management jobs and then working them 50-60 hours per week.

I have moved 9 times in my working career....had to stop and count for a sec........this is now house #5. And hopefully soon it will be move #10 and house #6.

That fear you have of moving to a new town will quickly melt away, no matter where you go there you are.

And you don't have to meet people just let them meet you, smile and say hello
