%@#a #$#%^$%^$^%^&*.
My kitchen full of boxes from the new one, and the installation will not been done before some extra unexpected preparations have taken place.
*sigh* Modern "craftsmen"....
Another week with only a microwave at hand and the nearest water tap in the bathroom. Living between boxes. Plus a lot of extra arrangements to make and extra costs.
Life can be fun.

So there's something that's been bouncing around the back of my mind for a while now. It's pretty pie-in-the-sky, so usually it's more of a 'I wonder if I...' thing rather than actual plans.

But my crapheap of a car has started falling apart again, and I've already spent 20% of the the money I've managed to save over the last year ($400 in repairs out of a total savings of ~$2k) in repairs and now I'm told that there's likely lasting damage which will sooner or later destroy the head gasket, and I should sell it before that happens and buy a new vehicle.

So basically I worked for crap wages for the entirety of the last year, saved every penny I could and am about to have to spend it all just to tread water and stay where I am (only without any sort of safety net).

So now I find myself seriously considering selling the vehicle, liquidating most of my other (very limited) assets, paying cab fare to the airport, buying a ticket to somewhere in europe and just trying my luck.

It's crazy, it's insane, but nothing I've tried HERE has worked out, and I'm almost ready to risk everything against the prospect of spending the rest of my life scrimping and worrying myself into the grave.

Can you move closer to a area where there is public transportation? That would probably be cheaper than moving to another country. Cars are a drain, and a luxury unless you have the means.

That was the plan, Europe.

I lived in Chicago for 4 years commuting on public transportation before buying a car for a suburb commute. Not saying it doesn't have problems, but it gets you there.

Yeah, I'm sure there are closer options. Part of my frustration is with the country itself, though. If I actually had training/a job opportunity/enough money to immigrate 'normally' I'd do it in a heartbeat, if only for some variety of UHC that would mean I wouldn't have to worry every time one of my numerous bad teeth starts hurting whether this is the infection that's going to eventually kill me.

Eh, I'm starting to drama-post. I need to go get some air...

the larger cities are good IF you are in city.... otherwise, forget it, except in older subdivisions.... SLC is probably an exception there, possibly one of the few things mormons are good at.

Denver doesn't deserve it's ranking IMO... yeah it's got the most mileage covered, but it only covers about half of what it should due to over-duplication. Hawaii's is fairly new, and didn't exist way back when I lived there (but you can drive all the way around Oahu in a day, so.... yeah)

He disagrees.
This is why cat meal times at my house are no when near human waking times.

Argh. I somehow managed to get embroiled in a FB discussion arguing with someone who believes sexual acts between two people of the same gender is a sin - like bestiality, pedophilia...

The only spark of hope I have is that he is prepared to talk it out. How can an expression of love between two people be a sin? *smack upside the head* THINK!

Unless you have the automatic right to work, i hate to say but Europe isn't too good on the job front either right now. I really wouldn't make a drastic move until you're aware of how you'd be able to manage. Despite all your current situation, and as others have suggested, i would say a move to a more transport friendly location would be a safer option.

Bless your heart. I'm rooting for you to have some amazing good luck very soon.

I realize that I am more comfortable and fortunate than almost everyone else on the planet. But somehow that doesn't comfort me when I think of all the ways I could, in just a few steps, go from being a homeowner with enough food to sleeping in doorways and eating out of dumpsters.

He's willing to talk it out because he thinks he can save your soul. Oh. Sorry to sound so negative. I do think there is a chance that your debating skills might open his mind at least a tiny bit.

Seyla, if there's anyone you can crash with in an area with good public transportation I would go that route. You could also consider renting out a room or going halves on an apartment in a transit-friendly neighborhood. That's what I had to do (rent a room) when I was younger, and I was without a car for two years until things got more settled with the work situation.

I'm sorry you're going through this - its rough, I know. I would also check out any possible free programs for your teeth. Oftentimes there will be a day once a year where dentists will get together and offer free care, you could look into that.

I don't think Europe is ready for American refugees quite yet...if you have to pack up and move, look for someplace you know someone you can crash with in a city with low unemployment. I know Minneapolis has a low unemployment rate (1.5 job seekers for 1.0 jobs) and there is good bus service in the core cities.

What debating skills?

You may be right though. I *think* I see some cracks in him but that may just be wishful thinking. I can only hope that he can still grow and learn to question his own beliefs. I've been there - I remember clearly when I first learned there were more than Catholics as Christians in this world... back when I was 14...

I would say move where opportunity is regardless of public transport.

Just getting by sucks regardless of where you live, public transport or not.

I think you can get by with more money to spare, though, if you eliminate the cost of car ownership.

Look what I found in the park while I was roller blading!



Evidently they aren't poisonous, but it was big as fuck. Easily four or so inches across.
