    I miss living in Denver. I could never afford to go back there these days, but it is my favorite city to live in hands down.

    As someone living in Boulder currently, I can attest to the stupidity of the housing market here :(

    Some of the things I alluded to in a couple of posts earlier this year (for which I have had my fingers crossed) have started resolving themselves (which is why I am still awake at what is, for my time zone, an absurd hour).

    My fingers are still somewhat crossed (not gonna jinx myself), but I am highly likely to be traveling to the UK for several years, during which I'll be doing a research dissertation at Nottingham.

     @Khaibit (you know already, but w/e) I'm coming to say hi! No running before I get there!

    Also I guess I'll get to meet some of the UK Achaeans while I'm there? I've only been to the UK maybe three times at this point, and didn't really go far from London. So much to learn!

    I lived near Nottingham for the first 6 months of my life. Watch out for the men in tights.

    Just went from Mobile -> New Orleans -> Little Rock -> Green Bay  -> Chicago -> Toledo -> Cleveland -> New York City -> Washington DC -> Charlotte -> Atlanta -> Mobile in a little less then 7 days driving and sight seeing.   

    Pro tip I learned don't do NYC -> DC back to back unless ya'all got some  comfy ass shoes cause 16 hours in NYC straight walking then DC straight walking with kick your ass in some steel toe work boots.  

    Good times all around :)

    can't even buy a studio in a bad neighborhood for that price in SoCal anymore.  

    I've been to Denver a few times, the downtown is gorgeous and so clean.  Also they have a really hot real estate market now, you should downsize to a 1500-1800 sq ft home there.  I love how homes have basements there, much man cave potential.
    Try prime downtown Toronto, my 450-ish sq ft studio has me wrapped around a $310k mortgage for the next 4.5 years.

    Los Angeles is 20-25% more expensive to live than Toronto.  Do you have a 7 yr ARM?

    5 and non-adjustable, which is good. I predicted a government rate-hike given the bubble and super rich asians going out of control with property purchasing.

    I accepted the job in Colorado for more than was initially offered. Negotiations ftw. Now, still trying to locate a place out there. Broomfield & Thorton appear to be priced well, I have yet to take a look at them. I will be moving to Colorado 4-6 months before my spouse. Wondering if I should just rent a room or get an apartment. We're going to be selling our house in Az, but want to save money for Colorado's ridiculous housing prices. 

    Also! I'm a native to Az. How do you meet people in a new state? :0

    Just tell people, 'Hi, I'm from Arizona!' and they'll be all, 'Oh, you poor thing,' and give you yummy things to eat to make up for the cosmic injustice!

    I have been told a lot of good things today.

    Including my significant other asking if I'd like a promise ring, since we can't afford more than that at the moment. But it means a lot.

    Which is pretty much why I've risen from the dead on here. I've always been so bad about checking the forums and it's such a shame! Every time I do visit I see everyone having tons of fun! I miss it!
    I didn't do it!

    I have finally found an enjoyable job that pays decently and I can tote the kiddo with me. It's a big weight off my shoulders for a starting place. But, it has made it hard to log in the past few days! I will have an easier time this week, sorry mdor! Gotta get that $$$

    Good employees are very hard to find. But I finally found 2 of them! That's enough to cover all my shifts as long as I can keep them. Now maybe I can get a few days off.
