Rant for a moment on the ridiculous costs of moving - especially to New York.
Granted I’m moving to Troy in upstate NY where the general living costs are relatively affordable, it is the cross country haul - what I’ve been describing Mexico to Canada - that is giving me hives, literally.
From logistics to costs (i.e. furniture, clothes, apartment, gas, plane tickets etc) to vehicle registrations, pet registrations to all things few and far between to not having a steady income until my fellowship money is released … I will be so poor.
There, I’ve admitted it.
So, I ask myself. Are you making the right decision? To be almost 30y/o and live like a pauper?
An affirmative, yes.
Money doesn’t buy happiness and no story is worth a damn without a little struggle.
