The next plan

So, I am planing to move in two years. Not only does thins mean I have a lot of saving to do but I will have to find a new job. In California no less.

I have dabbled in a long distance job search before. It was a learning experience. An experience that will make this trip much easier. 

The first lesson is that there is no such thing as a long distance job hunt at my pay level. So I will have to be out there before I start my search. While I will be contacting a hireing agency I highly dought they will set up any interviews without meeting me first. 

I will also be sending my car before me. This way I can not only go to interviews but not have to worry about getting a job without having a ride. This will also save me money because I will not have to rent a car. 

I will be taking all my vacation after my car is out there. Then when I get back I will turn in my notice. I have not decided how I am going to tell them. With our new manager I can't trust that she won't drop me the moment she finds out. And I really would like to not have to deal with unemployment during my move. 

Personally I have no intention of claiming unemployment unless the manager does something to me. Then there I cobra and all the other little details. 

Thank god this isn't happening for two years.

Gota love blogging

So, I got a new phone. I have been dragging my feet about it because I didn't want shell out the money for a data plan.

However... I finally broke down.

Maybe this will help with my blogging? Hmmm... Probably not.

A new plan for things to come

So, one or two years ago I was thinking that I would like to own a house in my area. How ever since I have been to California  I have been thinking about moving back here. I didn't realize how much I missed being here.

This actually came to me the moment my plane landed. All I could think was "I'm home".

Sadly, house prices are mad crazy high right now and with my current job I wouldn't be able to save enough for a house. I think I might be able to save about $700 a month if I try really, insanely hard and save every penny I can. How ever this will only be possible after I have paid off my bill's and car. Which will be about one year from now.

Then it would come down to if I wanted to buy a house in two years and still live in New York for another two years to pay it off a little bit before moving back to look for a job. This would give me no savings and no job. But I would have a house and my car to search.

The second plan would be to save up for four years before moving back. This would leave me with a lot of money but no place to live. The chances of buying a house without a job is slim to non-existent.

Theoretically I could try to get into the first time home buyers savings account here in California but they might require me to already be a resident of the state. Unfortunately the housing market is really high right now and I don't think I have a chance at these prices. Oi.

I might have to look into buying land and not a finished house.

This would be a different kind of monster but it would allow me to worry less because there would be no house for things to happen to without me there.  This would actually be a good idea because of some sneaky ideas for building tiny houses from barns. Then again this means I have to start researching the local housing codes.

Hmmm... more research! Yeay!

Tablet review part more!

Sorry for the lame title but considering I am posting from my bed...I am going through with it. I have gotten a few of the standard apps to play but I haven't been to into them. I have no connection at work (which is good) so no posting during lunchtime.

Not that I would ever condone such a thing... Never.

But this is so much fun! Until just now thanks to my loving cat walking all over me. Night all!

The Mayan Apocalypse

Or rather, the Apocalypse That Wasn't. Looks like thoughs rapture guys arn't the only ones missing their mark. Thankfully.

I know one person I work with was kinda hoping something would happen that would wipe her student loans. Can't say that I blame her for that idea.

I wonder if all the people that bought 'doomsday' survival kits are demanding a return?

NYC Trip

I am writing this from my sisters apt in NYC. :3 I am having a seriously good time even thought I hate my sisters laptop with a vengeance.

Back to the trip.

Got in Friday afternoon and made my way here to drop my stuff off. Then I got 'lost' in so much that I knew were I wanted to go but missed it by two long blocks and two short blocks. "It" being the Shake Shack. Such good food. That night we met with one of our cousins and went for mexican. Very Tasty.

Saturday  sister and I hit up the Met. This was a lot of fun. WE went for their M--thing show that was on but we had more fun at the modern art exhibit. We were there for almost three hours and saw a small portion of the Met as a whole. So much walking! we then went to Momofuku for noodles and on the way realised that the Santa walk had ditched everyone on that block! So much for the quiet night my sister thought we would have there. XD The spicy roasted rice was to die for!

Sunday night we returned some stuff, bought new running shoes and then had the best mac and cheese ever! (and a whiskey sour that was more whiskey then sour...) This was after we had been delayed do to a bird crapping on me and forcing us back to her apt when we were just across the street from the bus we needed. I pretty much cussed the bird out on my way back, it was quite the blue streak. My sister laughed the whole time.

Today has been pretty laid back. I got lunch from the Shake Shack again and I will be taking a nap after I finish this. Over all this trip has been just what I needed.
