I made about 60k last year. A little more before taxes. It may not seem like much but, according to Wikipedia, the average income in my city is 40k (20k for females and 38k for families). The cost of living isn't that high. You can buy a decent house for less than $500 a month! Plus only having one kid and no outstanding debt helps a lot, too.

I was able to pay all of my bills and have a thousand dollars left over every month to put in the bank and bullshit around with. I got a pretty good raise in the beginning of the year so I should do better this year. Problem is, my GF quit her job a little over a month ago. It hasn't happened yet but I know the time is fast approaching where I have to pay all of my bills (which is pretty much everything) and all of her bills--Her car, car insurance, and groceries. When that time comes, I don't know what I'm going to do. I don't want to be so shallow as to kick her out on her ass but I just don't understand how it's so hard for her to not fuck up. Thirty something years old and she doesn't even have anything to show for it besides clothes in the closet.

If we were on the same page, who knows how great our lives could be?

damn,  i know it's my fault for choosing to live downtown chicago but the monthly payments on a $400,000 house is a fair bit higher than that.  :P

 

...and unless the sex is soo good it's worth the $1,000 a month kick her to the curb.  in this day and age everyone should be working.

I can imagine.  I lived in Atlanta back in 97-98 and we were paying $700+ a month for a two bedroom apartment.  And, from what I've seen, it's IMPOSSIBLE to live in a city like New York.

well wages are generally better here.  sad (or was that awesome) for me my wife is the real bread winner and combined we are in the $160k+ catagory.  so impossible is relative ... but i've seen some friends try to move here.  that first year is pretty rough every time trying to adjust from what they have to what they need to live here.



I mainly only work during the summer, and this year I will earn around $5000 during the almost 3 months. Just a general outdoors summer job, nothing specialized ;D. I do not spend much at all, so this is more than enough for me...for now.

You'll be a Doctor; you'll make at least 80K.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

This isn't how you envisioned the thread to be going me thinks....

Not if I want to work in Iceland, no...

But thankfully, I don't think I will work here for long anyway. They are pushing all the young doctors away. There's a storm coming



Hey guys, I'm still lurking here. 

I just recently got a promotion, I'm at $35,000 which is almost twice as much as before.  I'm also hourly and I work about 30 hours of time and a half per pay period.  I might be able to come out with near 50K in a year if this keeps up. 

The excitement hasn't really kicked in yet.  My first paycheck won't be in the bank until tomorrow after midnight.



I work in education, what a rip off area for pay. Don't even want to think about it! And then, they got the balls to pretend like they care about teachers (politicians) and we get taxed like 40-45% of our total salary. Where the fuck are our tax breaks for anything, Jesus.

See, this is making me upset. Im'ma go out for a while.... =(
