i'm actually surprised at how inexpensive it could be to live here. well, it's definitely not on the cheap side either but from the looks of things even $10/hour will be enough to last me and i'm in NYC. not that i'd like such a salary but.. we'll see. xD;
I'm probably going to stick around in staten island for now! brooklyn and other areas in NYC tend to be more expensive. plus it's a lot less crowded here and i tend to like it~
yeah I think as long as your living space is under 1/2 your net income you should be fine. everything's expensive and that but if you actually think before spending it's all fine!
are you looking in a particular area or just whatever is good that you can get?
1/3 seems like too little but i wouldn't be against living on my own like that even though it'd not leave room for much else. i know some people who live paycheck-to-paycheck which is extreme and that honestly seems so risky that i don't think i'd be willing to try it. sigh. well, still applying for now!
my mom says that you should aim to have your rent cost about 1/3 of what you net each month, but i'm not actually sure if that's plausible >_> also everyone says you should drop at least $50 in savings and $50 in retirement fund per month as soon as you possibly can because that adds up
definitely! i'm going to plan out a budget and see how much i'd have leftover after rent, electric, gas, food etc just so i have enough to spare incase something happens. glad i have my family to help out if need be n~n;
nah i mainly just stay out of the way and do things when told. i dont have to worry about any of it really -v-;
I think the important part about moving into an apartment with someone is making sure you're financially secure and have a system set up for like, budgeting and payment responsibilities and that.
oh i see! hopefully it's not too stressful for you. :c that sounds pretty ideal for two people though and i'm hoping i'd be able to move into a 1 or 2BR sometime soon with the boyfriend -crosses fingers-
it's much cheaper! also we don't need a house anymore really. my brother and his gf moved out about a month ago and my mom and stepdad are splitting up and so it's just me and mom going to a nice 1bed/bath+den in downtown~
i haven't been working for... seven months now? idk. but we've been in the process of moving out of a house and to an apartment and i just got back from two weeks of going places and doing things and now that the house is on the market i have to be out at certain times and ugh so annoying
yeah max was shafted but I have more faith bonnie won't just be on the sides. She's too precious, they've already made merch of her! super pink satchel with dedenne inside was a plush I saw released in japan ahh gosh it is adorable. ;o;
and ugh same haha. i'm always behind and catch up weeks/months later. busy. :(
that make sense! but ugh, i honestly dread thinking if she'd get the max treatment because i so want to see her become older and have pokemon to train of her own.. but of course it won't happen. i'll just keep daydreaming or looking at fanart/writing. :(
left off on XY 28 so time to catch up though, awee. 8D
