As of late, I've come to realize that at the moment, I am living paycheck to paycheck and not saving a dime.
I have my own apartment and live in central Florida and gas prices are at an all time high. All of this adds up.
Add the the fact that I have been really bad with money management in the past.
Realistically, my only viable option is to move with my parents who just moved to Alabama.
Not that its a pity thing or nothing like that. They would be soooo happy to have me back in the house (a nice big house with a pool at that). They often say I should move back, since not much is going for me (work/school wise) here in Fl.
I just hate the idea of it. I've gotten to accustomed to living on my own, that the thought of living with other people, my parents no less, is sorta of a friggin' bummer. Plus, i'd be leaving friends and my routine and all that stuff.
I mean, I could find a higher paying job, but at the moment, that wouldn't help as much as I would like.
So with that said, how's alabama?
I know that no one tours there except for the occasional rapper and country artist (i guess).
But at this point, that can't really be a factor in my money problems. But theres always Florida or Georgia for that (plus I still have family in Miami and Orlando).
I know its not necessarily hicksville (at least where my parents are stationed at).
I know it can get crazy hot (but Im in Fl, so whats new?)
Ideally, I'd move back in for about a year, save up enough scratch and get a nice little savings and then go back into the world, with hopefully a better job experience that could lead to better things
Thoughts? (not really on my problem, but more so on Alabama)
